Metal without any reflection
« on: February 08, 2016, 01:19:26 am »

How can I make material without reflection?
For example I have chrome polished  material and I don't want to have any reflection on it.

Please advise.

Hi iromix.

Polished chrome (and other shiny surfaces) are heavily defined of what they reflect.  Having no reflections will result in a total black material.

If you want your object to reflect the environment but not the other objects in the scene, I'll suggest you to do a render pass where you hide all the stuff you don't want reflected, and comp it together with e.g. photoshop.

Let me know of you need a clearer description of how this is done.

I think that this material type is e.g. a diffuse material with a soft gradient or an advanced material. As well you can play with metallic paint or anisotropy.

Give us a hint, what you've try to achieve
