Trying to get good reflections for oro logo
show user profile  khamski


My best shot so far.
I like that uppr right part but hate everything else.
I've used cube particles as an objects for reflection.
HDRI on an enviroment is there but doesn't give good reflections.

Is there any tested production approach to get nice reflections?

what material settings are you using?
You could up increase the output of your hdri.
what render engine?

I would probably build large-ish light cards with illuminated gradient maps and place them around the object.

material was downloaded here:
but i used part from it called "Oro"

Yes i tried the output for enviro mat but it doesn't give me sexy reflections like in that upper right corner.
Seems like only actual geometry that is at point blank range gives it.

I use skylight lighting using enviro map

What range? Close or like on the surface of the giant sphere?

look up jewelry photography techniques and apply it to your scene.

That advice worked.
Now it is an oro.
Thanx killerbee2!


But any critics and help are appreciated.
