3dsmax 2021 Physical Material Mapping Leaf using cutout


Hi Everyone,
I am having trouble mapping a leaf to a plane surface. I created an alpha channel map and applied the bitmap as a cutout and have my leaf texture as my base color. However when I render using Arnold my leaf has a slight transparency which I cannot get rid of. Please help. !


There is no current solution to this problem. Someone please provide a solution!!! Thank you.
