View Full Version : ICE Shader
:wavey: Hi! all, I've recently developed a simple ICE shader for personal project..Please,
critics most welcome.
Renderer: Maya software renderer,2 point neutral light set.
render time: 8.00 secs
Thanks a ton for your time. :)

That looks really good. The second one really succeeds in appearing to have a layer of snow/ice on top. Well done. Imagine what you can do with mental ray ;)
Hi! phix314, Thanks a lot for your reply.Well, yes i ve tried mentalray before ,i agree with you always,you can definitely build a kick ass shader though.But,my goal was the lesser rendertime for tv commercial.Thanks again. :thumbsup:

Yea totally understand. I'd just love to see how far you can take this for a still piece (screw rendertime ;) ) with as powerful a renderer as mr.
Just curious, how many nodes do you have plugged in to the shader?
hey this looks good...pretty nice..cool shader :)
Hey Thanks Nikita..thanks a lot :)
Yeah sure Steve i will show you a MR version soon.What about you? Can you show me some of your stuff??
Well, here you go the network,but not optimized.... :beer:
Here you go again: A bit change in the shader..added specular breakup and a bit of displacement..Thank :)

I think thats the lovely thing about shaders like this.. you can massively change the outcome and it still registers as a cold ball. :) Good lookin network - not too complicated, but highly effective.
I have been working a lot on shaders the last day or two, and I've been posting my results here:
I have to admit, I had to take a crack at an ice shader after I saw this ;)
Thanks man...I saw your post..superb approach man..Keep it up! MR really rocks :bounce:
