[IDV #JQG-115851]: Transparency with isosurface



Bonjour Patrick,

This is very similar to a question you asked earlier for which we already sent 
you a reply. I wonder if your spam filter is capturing our replies. I will 
simply copy and paste our earlier reply.

We are able to reproduce what you see. As far as we can tell, this an artifact 
of the transparency, and not necessarily a problem. In particular, in some 
areas, the isosurface is illuminated from underneath. These isosurfaces are 
"free-floating" like clouds, and you can see the underside of the isosurface. 
If you rotate your view, you can see that these isosurfaces are "detached" from 
the globe.


cordialement,
