At very first, let me apologize for all the typos. I was in a hurry and additionally, there were some friends of mine at my place, so I couldn´t concentrate that well....
I will change that ASAP....
(text layer rasterized already.... :( )

Software: Cinema 4D

An explanation of the C4D transparency.

How you create realistic glass with correct reflections.
How to create opaque materials with the tranparency absorption.

what happen if u put another object inside..say for example..water..or wine..

i was doing some test few days ago..and even if i had a lot of raytrace ray bouces, the inside object was looking crap :(

can u glass (no color) and some color liquid inside..your set up will work ?
thank u!

To put liquid in it, it´s important that the liquid doesn´t "touch" the glass. To get the best result, the glass and the liquid should slightly overlap. (with slightly, I mean less than 0.01 units)
That will create the most realistic refraction.
I suggest you to set ray depth to 7 or 8 and reflection depth to 3 to 5.
