That property of a material which transmits light rays so that objects can be clearly seen through the material.
A full colour image photographically produced on transparent film.
A material property that allows light to pass through the object. [KAU91
Transparent film used in overhead projectors.
The ability of a substance to transmit light.

A positive image on a transparent base, such as film or glass, viewed by transmitted rather than reflected light. When mounted in a metal, plastic or cardboard mount, a transparency is called a slide. Also Archival terminology for a 4x5 sheet of film.
The degree to which celestial light is able to pass through Earth’s atmosphere.
A monochrome of full-color photographic positive or picture on a transparent support, the image intended for viewing and reproduction by transmitted light. In photography, also refers to the light-transmitting power of the silver deposit in a negative, and is the inverse of opacity. Inexpensive, semi-permanent window posters printed on high-grade onionskin paper for application to glass surfaces. The property of an ink which permits light to pass through it. Lack of hiding power.
a transparent object that is viewed by light shining through it from behind or by projection
a positive color image on clear film.
An image which is viewed by transmitted light. Specifically a film image, usually positive and often in color, intended for projection.
(1) Colour positive film that offers superior colour and detail for scanning an image because it is not created through the two-step negative/positive process used to create prints. (2) The property of an ink or paper to permit light to pass through it.
In terms of painting this means the last opacity, in painting application. Transparency is usually acquired by the use of glazes which allow previous layers of paint to show through changing the color and creating depth in the paint surface.
The property of a material that allows light and images through and may also show a color tint.
A positive film or slide, having a picture or design that is visible when light shines through it or that can be projected on a screen.
a full color photographically produced image on transparent film.
The ability of a tape to allow transmission of light. A tape is rated as transparent if 10 point type can be read easily when the tape is applied directly over it.
picture consisting of a positive photograph or drawing on a transparent base; viewed with a projector
a giant slide
a picture in coloured tissue paper, which comes to life when light shines through it
A positive (as opposed to negative) picture on film. 35mm transparencies are usually called slides.
The depth to which light will penetrate a body of water.
A transparent positive photograph.
Any artwork viewed by having light pass through it, rather than reflecting off it.
An Attribute: how see-through an object is. Normally set to zero, it must be set to at least one for gases and Opacity texture mapping to work. A Permission flag: if this flag is set to OFF, any object requiring transparency is rendered as a solid, thus reducing calculation time.
The quality of an object that defines the ability of light to pass through it. If an object is completely transparent, light passes through it completely and it is invisible.
(1) A positive photographic image on a clear base (plastic or glass) that may be viewed using a slide or overhead projector and used in a stereoscopic plotter. (Also called a diapositive or slide). (2) The ability of a material to transmit light.
Photographic positive mounted in a clear or transparent image.
The ability of the diamond to transmit light.
Positive photographic image on film allowing light to pass through. Also called chrome, color transparency and tranny. Often abbreviated TX.
A positive photographic image on film, viewed or projected by transmitted light. Film transparencies are a positive film. See positive.
The condition of being transparent or see through. An object which is 100%% transparent is invisible. In simple terms, transparency is the result of changing an objects opacity.
A positive photographic slide on film allowing light to pass through.
A slide that is viewed by light shining through it from behind or by projection. Also Slide.
A photographic image on transparent material used for viewing or projecting by transmitted light, or for making copies.
Full-color, translucent, photographic film positive.
a full colour photographically produced image on transparent film.
in photography, illustrative copy such as a colour transparency or positive film through which light must pass in order for it to be seen or reproduced.
Image formed on a clear or translucent base by means of a photographic, printing, chemical, or other process, generally viewed by transmitting light through the image.
A positive photographic image viewed or projected by transmitted light. Colour slides are transparencies.
Also referred to as a slide. A positive photographic image on a clear base film that has to be viewed on a light table or in a slide projector. Close Window
A transparent, positive photographic image, usually a full color slide. This is the highest quality art for color scanning.
(1) A photographic positive mounted on transparent film and viewed by transmitted light. (2) The quality that allows images to be seen through a sheet. to top
A surface property that determines how much light passes through an object without being altered. See Also: Alpha.
A positive photographic image,i.e. a slide, typically meant to be viewed by projecting light through the image.
A positive image on a clear film base viewed by passing light through from behind with a projector or light box. Usually in color.
The depth that light will penetrate water. A Secchi disk is used to measure the limit of visibility in water bodies such as lakes.
is a parameter that is determined by sinking a varnished white disc, which is 3 mm thick with a diameter of 30 cm (Secchi's disc), into the water and assessing the distance when it disappears from view (between 15 cm and 20 m). Transparency is influenced by the presence of particles of sediment, caused by the motion of the waves and bathers, and by the presence of inorganic material and/or microalgal bloom.
A positive photographic image on film, viewed or projected by transmitted light (light shining through film).
or slide: 35mm, 4" x 5" or 8" x 10" positive colour image on film which can be projected on a screen or scanned as artwork.
A processed and stabilized positive film image, i.e., a slide is a transparency.
a positive image on a transparent support.
Positive color film such as a slide.
That property of a material which transmits light rays so that objects can be distinctly seen through the specimen.
A type of Hold to Light postcard that creates its transformation with many thin layers of paper. A total change in image is caused by strong light behind the postcard. There are no die cut holes in the surface to achieve this transformation.
The ability of a medium to allow light to pass through it.
A positive photographic slide or film that allows light to pass through.
(1) The light-transmitting capability of a material. The loss of light in transmission through good optical glass. Approximately 2.4% of visual light is lost for every centimetre of glass traversed. (2) A positive image upon glass or film, intended to be viewed by transmitted light, either black and white or in colour; also called a diapositive.
A surface can be transparent or opaque. When ray tracing a transparent surface, light rays that penetrate the surface bend, and the light is refracted.
A film-based positive image that is viewed and reproduced through transmitted light.
Ability of paper to allow light rays to pass through so that objects behind it can be clearly seen.
the quality of a material which transmits light and can be seen through.
A positive photographic image on film, usually color but can be B&W, viewed or projected by light shining through the film.
A measure of the amount of light which an ink film allows through; the reverse of obliteration or opacity.
Term for overhead film material used on overhead projection units
A colour picture on a transparent film, usually produced as a slide, as opposed to a colour print
In optics, transparency is the property of allowing light to pass. Transparent materials can be seen through; that is, they allow clear images to pass. The opposite property is opacity.
