08 August 2004, 05:48 AM
hi, i am new to XSI and I am following a tutorial..
it says, go to NET VIEW and under LIBRARY>Render>GLASS , and get GLASS001

View->Tolbars->Shader Presets

or seek the HELP - Shader recipies (glass) - is a good example of front back switch

On Net-view, the big coloured banner is at the top, directly underneath is a line of tabs with XSI-Net on the far left, with Library the next one to the right.

Remember that good glass, like good metal, stands and falls on the quality of it's environment / reflections.

thanks guys~

i finally found it~ :)

got it under view-shader

but i have a quesiton about the shaders under library netview?.
so you can download extra shaders through netview right?
do those go under \Softimage\XSI_4.0\Data\DSPresets\Shaders\Texture?
and how would u access those presets?

hit 7 (render tree)
load the material of the the object
go to NODES and on ewery subnode like Illumination texture .... at bottom MORE...
klick MORE and navigate to find :)

or open Browser or NetView and just drag and drop all thah you need in the Render tree

I will try that~
I am a former Lightwave user~ and this Render Tree is giving me a headache~! :P
but I think once u get used to it, i think it will be really useful~
