Default Xray shading

Hey gang,

You know the XRay shaded option in Maya viewports?

Does anyone know if it's possible to change the transparency levels of it?

Thanks.

no. but u can dwnld this script for Xray that makes only the selected object xray.
for instance when u use maya's default Xray operation, it turns entire scene 50%trans, but with this script u can make only object u select to appear Xray leaving other objects normal shaded.
i assign this to a hotkey like ctrl +1

Dann also. you can make a hot key to change the transparincy of like say a defalt lambert named XrayLamb. This can work just like Xray. But I'm not sure if it will work with your gf-card. Let me know if you can.
to make the hotkeys. bring up your script editer. Change the tranparincy to what you want, say 70%. A line will apear in the script editer copy that out to your shelf. Thin you can assine a hotkey for it also if you wish. Do this again for setting transparincy back to 0%.
