Translucency and factors impacting its perception is not yet fully understood. Various studies have examined the correlation between physical material properties and perceived translucency. Furthermore, the concept of translucency constancy has been introduced. However, to the best of our knowledge, no study has been conducted to identify how image quality impacts perceived translucency. In this study, we address to one particular image quality attribute - blurriness. We quantified blur with objective image quality metric and conducted psychometric scaling experiments to identify how blurring impacts the perceived degree of translucency. The analysis of the results show some indications that blur impairs translucency perception.
