View Full Version : Microscope lens material + Cycles

06 June 2012, 03:47 AM
How would you guys go about making a Microscope lens material in cycles?

Like so....

ie that purple tint with distorted whitish to purple reflections.

Is there any tutorials on something similar?

I can't find the image but i remember someone posting a node setup where they use the colour mix node and split the output into its RGB component and then recombined the RGB values with different IOR values.

Wasn't this link was it?

Cause I'm also looking to animate the scene and that seems a long render time. :(

no it was in the either the Cycles test thread, or the Brecht easter egg surprise thread. Finding it will be difficult. If you like I can create a node setup of what I mean.

Yeah thanks I'd appreciate that.

It's not the same effect you are trying to achieve but I believe with some tweaking you should be able to achieve that effect.
