Image Defines Transparency in Revit Material

Quick post today... an image file can be used to define a transparency in a render appearance asset as shown in the first image below. This could represent an etched or vinyl pattern on glass.

The lighter areas of the image are more transparent than the darker areas. Click on the image preview to adjust the size of the image (i.e. the pattern on the glass).

The result can be seen in this 3D view from a healthcare project...
