Damaged Gold?
show user profile  Agentmass
So I have seen several videos of people rendering something that looks like"damaged gold" or gold that has seen it's days. Here is a video of what i'm talking about. I have done tons of Google searches and can not figure out how to get this effect. Displacement maps maybe?

a simple bumb map would work, if it needs to be low poly, or, just increase the poly count and do it manually

I just tried a bump map and I did not get the desired effect. I got this. Also, anyone that has experience with Vray, how do you remove those noisy spots on the shadow areas of the gold?

to get the desired effect (like in the bullet video) you should unwrap the uvs for your object. Save out a template and bring it into something like photoshop, where you'll need to "paint in" the damaged area. You'll get something like this..

Hmm. So do you just make a white/black bump map where the black areas are the "damaged" areas? Also, what do you think of those noisy areas in my render?
