Dark reflected light through transparent plastic


I'm trying to render this image as a semi transparent material with a clear plastic case over the top. When I turn on the yellow base the material under the clear case turns black / dark.

Here's just the base:

Hello Stephen,

Thank you for contacting Luxion.
A few thing you need to check:

One, make sure the lighting in the scene is set higher than basic, also make sure you have a significant amount of ray bounces 14-16 should do.

You also want to make sure that none of the model set are overlapping or touching this can cause the issue you are seeing.

lastly if you are using a transparent plastic you need to make sure you have the Refractive Index value set correctly.  You will need to adjust this in the material tab.
