View Full Version : Real glass object

03 March 2004, 09:47 AM
Hi guys,

I’m trying to simulate the real behaviour of a glass object hit by a source light; the most important different between a real glass object and a Maya generated object is that the first is “solid” inside itself, the second is “empty”; in fact, if you navigate inside, for example, a poly cube it is empty… Obviously light effects in a solid objects are different compared to an empty one… Exist a way in Maya to simulate the behaviour of a solid one?

Bye and thanks
