In ArcGIS Pro (2.1), I'm attempting to create a 3D scene in which the underlying basemap is transparent such that I can see through the oceans.

I'm trying to get an effect similar to this.

Or this:

I've created a 3D Scene in ArcGIS Pro with just a basemap.

Reducing the the transparency to 50% just fades the basemap and doesn't actually make it transparent.

enter image description here If I turn the basemap off completely, I just get a white globe.

And adding a vector layer of countries results in this: enter image description here

Is there a way to achieve a transparent globe in ArcGIS Pro? Or is this something that hasn't been implemented?

    Yes, this worked. Thank you. For some reason, looking for this in Elevation Surface was not obvious to me. It's also worth noting that for good results, I had to play around with the Illumination settings. – Fezter Apr 11 '18 at 5:20
