Hi Fernando, I know that TWR1.5 has a quick way to import materials from zipped folder. Anyway you can just unzip it and put the folder named "curtain_massimo" inside twilight's material folder.
If you are on PC is: C-->programs(x86)-->Google-->GoogleSketchUp (whatever number)-->Plugins-->Twilight-->Materials. Be also sure, by checking in "options" (the little gear icon), that Twilight is pointing in the right folder.
Be careful, long render time.

I'm having an issue using this material:

- light can't enter the room
- the back face of the curtain comes out black in the rendering

Am I missing something?

hi Kronox, please post a simple example test model so we can have a look and find what's wrong.

It shows transparency, but doesn't transmit light. The light comes from an invisible ceiling plane light. In SU bucket tool the curtain material is 40 percent transparent, then I apply massimo's curtain preset.

Kronox, try these 3 options: (pay attention to whether or not the material requires real world thickness or only single face)

Subject: Curtain and Drapes Materials by Alvydas

Subject: Curtain Material Library - Sheer Curtains

Subject: Matte Lampshade Material Library (39 colors)

Thanks a lot Fletch! The lampshade looking material seems to work perfect for the transparent white curtain :^:
