Glass Windows

Recommended Posts

I am using Home Designer Architectural 2017 version on Mac
 
I would like to figure out how to make all windows more opaque and tinting to show a more realistic 3D view of my project.
 
I've tried many ways to do this, but it always keep showing the glass as see-thru/clear.
 
I tried making a new material, as well as using this "Adjust Material" selector, but can not get any texture/material or transparency to work. See image linked

 

thanks for any advice

Thank you Jo_Ann for your advice. After reviewing the link and making a copy, its still did not work for the windows, but i tried tinting a door and noticed that it worked the door, so i figured out that since i removed ALL the sashes to 0" on the windows to make them look more industrial, they were not responding when i tried to tint/color them, so now i went back and added a 1" sash to them, and they now are able to be colored as i desire,

 

much appreciated, and glad i can now go forward with my renderings :)

So the lesson here is - copy and amend the copy and  not the original? Is that it?

This means re-assignin the material in the defaults?

Correct?

Thanks.
