Half(Gradient)-transparent material

Post Thu Apr 21, 2016 6:23 pm

Hello,
I've been trying to create a gradient transparent material but I can't seem to figure out how to do it properly. I need this arrow to be sort of gradient transparent, at the tip to be fully green and then slowly weaken and at the end to be perfectly invisible.

I tried two ways - blend procedural and UV map with Alpha channel. But not matter what I did I could not get the desired results. I am missing something and my head is spinning again from trying to change every possible little box.

Blend procedural:

If anyone can help me out there I would be really grateful :) Thank you very much!
