    Hi,

    I am trying to get transparency on a layer with the new terrain tool but no matter what I try, it doesn't work.

    Basically, I would like to have a layer with a texture that has transparency.
    I am not an expert with the tools and all the options as I have started to use it not so long ago.

    My question is simple:
    Is it possible to have a Layer with transparency (by transparency, I mean full cutoff)?
    If so, what should I do?

    I am using Unity 2019.3.0b8 with UniversalRP 7.1.2, and Terrain Tools preview 2.0.2.

    Thank you!

    Its not going to happen. The shaders don't support it and it'd be a nightmare to the engine if you tried to make a shader that did have transparancy. The visblocking stuff would totally break, for one thing.
