Vray material - how do i make my refraction fog white?
show user profile  xderpx
I'm having a bit of a problem getting a certain effect i'm after.
I'm trying to make a material that is transparent on the outside, but inside is white. I've been able to sort of half do it using the refraction fog color chanel. I can make the interior of my texture any color but white, white makes it go transparent. Is there some way i can unlink this so the transparent is controlled elsewhere and i can make my fog white? Thanks :)

EDIT: I've managed to get the look i'm after by using vrayenvironmentfog

Bit foggy about this (pun very much intended), but refraction colour is the inverse, so red refraction = green colour. So by that theory make the refraction black and give it a go.

Note: I might be leading you astray so just do a region render.

Wouldn't this be done with absorption, not refraction?

I just find a milky or frosted material and tweak it....but I'm lazy :)

edit: I thought it was absorption too...SSS ?

The question is do you want it frosty or milky ?
