View Full Version : How to combine materials?

I have made a new danel shader material with an anisotrphic planar radial pattern on it. I have placed it on a cylinder but now I want to put another normal semi transparent sticker over it so that the danel shines trough.
How can I do that?

Howdy,

One thing you might want to consider is that the Danel shader and the other SLA shaders can be simulated using the individual SLA Channel shaders. Lumas is the channel shader that has the same anisotropic options. If you can achieve the same results with the channel shaders, then mixing is a bit easier.

Adios,

I strugled with the Lumas effect but can't get a good material. I think the Danel is much easier.
In my model I first made a cylinder with the Danel shader an then a little bigger cylinder with the flag, but I want to combine them to get a more showy material.
See below.

Howdy,

Hmmm, you couldn't get that same effect with Lumas?

Howdy,

What channel did you have Lumas in?

I tried the reflection channel and the color channel but it didn't look good.

Howdy,

I just threw this quick test together:

This is with Lumas only in the color channel.

Thats the same problem I get. The circles are stretched.

just scale them in the Y direction :shrug:using a cylindrical projection, doesn't sound too difficult

Howdy,

Yeah, the anisotropic effect is a 3D Volume effect. Looks like you're getting a bit of the same with the Danel. That was just a quick test to see if it would work.

Adios,
