Very very impressive! I like the concept also!

The shine on the cable is very nice! Is it a specular shine, or did you use reflections and white cards?

One critique:

In my opinion the network plug seems a bit to transparent, and the index of refreaction is too high. I looks like glass, not plastic.
Maybe a bit more specular highlights or softer reflections on the plug would make it look more like plastic also.

Did it take long to render?

A very impressed,

The shine on the cable is a blured reflection, (white cards reflecting), Its rendered in Vray 1.07, and the rendering times took a while, there is some compositing involved...

I have to agree with the "glass" versus plastic though...

Anybody got the IOR for this kind of plastic?

Do some deep research (look at a CD jewel case.. :) ) and try to duplicate that. I think it's about the same material and thickness.

Or look at your computers network plug. (That would mean being disconnected from the internet! :surprised: )

I really like the blurred reflections as specular highlight, works really well! I hope one day computers will be fast enough to do everything this way!

Greetings,

Oh, I did my research, I even hacked a network cable connector in half to get to the inner structure.....:D

Thanx for all feedback, I am rendering a version with IOR 1.48, and a little bluring in the refractions...
