Sharp glossy reflections
« on: July 17, 2010, 11:08:44 am »
Love the new "sharp glossy reflections" in the environment options for ver 2.0.46.

I played with this on some of my existing jewelry renders and got a dramatic improvement in realism for metal materials.  And if a material becomes too glossy with this environment feature enabled, just adjust the material's roughness setting.

Great to hear, Ed. Please let me know directly if you are finding any issues with it. Our goal is to "hide this option" in the next update, and have it turned on by default.

Maybe you want to show this to Jay ... ;-)

Thomas - I think the check box is fine where it is.  Perhaps turn it on by default, but I wouldn't hide it.

Thanks for the feedback, Ed. Why not hide it? Would you ever consider turning the checkbox off? It only has an affect on reflective materials with a small roughness value.
