Glass Reflection
show user profile  voodoochile
I have a vray glass material to go into my windows, but I need a blurred reflection of the street.

I want to get this effect.

I presume adding a bitmap onto the material. Where in the material exactly?

Look into HDRI lighting techniques mate.

Assuming you already have something to reflect, lower the Refl. glossiness a little to blur the reflection.
You'll probably have to crank up the subdivs to get rid of the noise (and increase render time).

Make a bitmap material with > coordinates > 'environ' radibutton checked, mapping set to spherical environment.
Load that into the environment slot in your glass material.

Now I have a doubt.
Is this about getting a reflection or getting a blurred reflection?

Is there a difference?

In an ideal world I thought I could move a slider to change the blurryness and to change thereflectivity.

Of course this is 3DS and its never so easy!
