Clear Coat
show user profile  Landia
I am not sure if this can be done in 3DS Max, but is there a way to make a car paint with a clear coat? The only I see is that you have to pick a color for the clear coat. I am trying to figure out a way to have NO color for the clear coat so the shinny reflection is a clear coat. I wish there was a way to select No Color in the clear coat feature.

Thanks for any advice!

You should specify that first next time... makes a huge difference.

As far as the question, are you building your own car paint with a VRayBlendMtl or using the included VRayCarPaintMtl?

The proper way to setup a car paint material with the VRayBlendMtl is as follows:

Base Paint (with or without flake)
Chrome (100% reflective with Fresnel falloff turned *off*) w/ Falloff Map for the Blend amount.
