raytrace materials?
show user profile  bloody_angel1
hello everyone, i was curious, i have been following some of the lighting tutorials on 3dtotal, and i really love the GI and caustics and all, its pretty freakin sweet that you can do all that stuff, but i have viz 2008, and i dont have any of those raytrace materials (like the colored raytrace glass or whatever they are) they tell me to use in the tutorials, but at school, we have max 08 and viz 08, so assuming only max has these raytrace materials, is it possible to just save the materials to my flash drive from max 08 at school, then put them into the material library on my viz 08? or is there some other way to get those materials?

any help is appreciated, thanks.

GI and Caustics are lighting effects, not material specific.. you can create caustics with a normal Raytraced material...

Terribly boring signature.

they are just presets of the raytrace map
think, a ray trace map with a blue color
thats all they are, nothing even worth your time using
just learn how to create a raytrace map and what to change to get the effect you want
