Can Quality Chrome be seen under Layers of Mostly Clear Glass
Read 1205 times

Will post the final image later today, but I just want to know if its possible to display quality chrome/chromium bearing parts when rendered under ( below ) two layers of an object that already have materials applied eg: mostly clear glass? Check the sample image.

The arrow is pointing to a roller bearing thats underneath the body object and the body object is below the connecting shaft.

It is possible, but you may have to tweak the settings for both the chrome and glass materials (in addition to the lighting, maybe).

"Mostly clear glass" probably isn't the best material for this application, mainly because it is not uniformly transparent. I'd suggest creating your own material(s), with "Plain coverage" Transparency and perhaps "Plastic" Reflectance.

Thanks Jeff & Henry, Im not real big on creating my own materials mostly because I its so time consuming. If the need arises then Henry I think youve pointed me in the right direction.

Darryl,
I tried a quick go at it. I used the 'glass" and "conducter" material in 'Lightworks' and some tweaking  ;D
Redsdk is similar, I just wasn't in the mood for redstuff  :P

> you should post your example though Cuz anything go's when rendering

Hey Dean I appreciate your interest in this post, Im thinking that your post and image maybe the answer to a really cool render. So Im gunna ask would you post the the tcw file on the forum as an epack or if that doesnt suit then maybe an alternate way might work?
