I started using Blender about a month ago. I am planning a (real) car restoration in about a year and thought I would model my car in Blender and model the changes I want to make so I could see how it would look ahead of time. I have gone from not even knowing how to make an object or rotating/moving it, to almost completing the BASIC shell shape of the car. (No effects, or anything, it looks like a plastic toy right now.) But the question I have is: I want to work mainly in Object/Edit mode so I can rotate the car around at will and see any side I want (when Im done modeling), whenever, but I want to be able to see transparency/light while Im moving around. Is it possible to model transparency/translucency and light and see it in the 3D view? I want to render also, that shows the most detail, I know, but would like to see it in 3D and still move it around. Sorry I’m long winded, just wanted to give the background of my question. Thank you.
BTW: the transparency shows up in the renders, but not the viewports.
