Hi all
I am a complete newbie to this list (just subscribed) and a newcomer to R (an S user from olden times). I have been using scatter3d to create a 3d scatter plot with surface. The graphic is created within the rgl package and I have used rgl.postscript to export it so I can generate a publication quality image. My problem is that the plotted surface is no longer transparent in the postscript output ie. the rgl.spheres that are behind the surface disappear in the postscript image. Can't seem to find any info on this anywhere. Am I doing something wrong? Is there an easy fix?

Anyway, thanks.
Hope I've not broken some netiquette rule sending this.

Paul Fisher.
