Steps to reproduce

Chrome 53 has implemented the new css-transforms spec, which means that applying opacity to 3D elements causes them to be flattened. For detail, please check here:

This new behavior does not make sense, and reduces the utility of 3D programming in the web.

In a 3D game engine, do you expect an object to be flat like paper as soon as you make it transparent? Of course not! The same should hold true with opacity and CSS3D.

    • The test page in the linked bug seems to be working in Edge, Chrome, and Firefox.  If the spec doesn’t match your expectations, www-style would be a good place to discuss improvements to the spec.
