Good question. I've not yet tried it in the new SW, but you might be
able to do a work-around. If you tell the decal (in the properties when
you set up your decal) to follow the settings of the SW material, you
might be able to adjust your material to be somewhat transparent.
Here's another way I can interpret your question:
When you create your decal, use a solid particular color for your
background. When you apply the decal, on the second tab (image or
something like that), select the background color to be transparent, or
masked out. The interface is a tad awkward, but it works. You can
either select the color with a pointer or select the absolute color in
the color palate. When the decal renders, the selected color will not
be seen. I believe you can select multiple colors, but this can be
cumbersome. I recommend using something inexpensive, but effective such
as PhotoShop Elements (need layers) for editing your decals for rendering.
One of these days I'm hoping to post a tutorial on a simple scene for
this stuff since it comes up so often. (Where can I buy about five
hours to get this done?)
