Transparency is useful in plots when you need an unobstructed view of multiple components of one plot, or simply want to lighten a single plot component against a white background. Mathematica
uses the graphics directive Opacity
to apply transparency to graphics objects. Opacity
can be used with most visualization functions.
Use the PlotStyle
option with Opacity
to make the plot 70% transparent:
Make the plot 60% transparent:
Add different transparency settings for plots of multiple functions:
Here is a 2D region determined by two inequalities:
Make the plot 50% transparent:
to see the inner parts of a plot:
You can also add transparency to graphics.
Make a 75% transparent disk:
can have values between 0 and 1, with 0 corresponding to perfect transparency:
