Default How would i?

Hi Again everyone TOW here. Well i have 2 questions this time.

The first is on how do i create a glass like texture, and the best way to discribe it is to say i want to make a glass texture that looks like the glass on a Lava Lamp.

The 2nd question is how would i go about creating glowing objects that fad in and out.

and thats it.

oh and 1 thing off topic

when i build something big after you zoom to a certen point it looks as if it goes behind a wall how do i turn that off?

In your viewport go to the camera tab, (or the first one) click camera attributes, then in the att editor pump up the far clipping plane value some.

Glass - Use a blinn material with the transparacy up (so its clear) then play about with the specualr material setting and the refractive index etc.

Glowing objects - either use the incandesance channel keyframed then refined in the graph editor, or the glow attribute (depending on hwat you want)

Camera - As J5ive said, and get rig of the auto camera clipping.
