Hi,

I am trying to create a scene in 3ds max and mental ray which has a very reflective spheres very similar to pool Balls.
does any body know a good tutorial about how to create pool balls?

I saw there was once a video with vray but cannot find it anymore.

Cheers,

asa

They are a pretty basic matterial. I would just go 60% diffuse, 40 % reflection. Done

Ehhh...Yes and no.

I suppose it depends on the level of realism you want to achieve. I remember reading that vray tutorial a while back, and it was fairly straightforward. No scratch maps, or, if I recall, any maps of any kind really (minus color of course).

If you check this image, a well used ball has minor surface scuffs and the like. How far have you progressed since you opened this thread? I'm curious.
