Vray mtlwrapper and gradients.
show user profile  wan wong
I'm working with a Vray scene where there's some objects standing close to a river. I'm making some reflections in the water using a mtlwrappper(matte/shadow) with high glossy vraymat. I'm wondering if it's possible to make some gradient effect so the reflection become less present nearby the river bed. I've been trying with opacity maps in the vraymat slot and also making a blend material, but none of 'em work.

If anyone has any ideas; please share.

Have you tried a falloff map in the opacity slot? If you get it right possibly you can instance it to the reflection slot.

*note I'm no shading expert, just thought I'd give my 2 cents.
