View Full Version : Chrome Help Please

11 November 2005, 11:41 AM
Hey People,

Does anyone know how to make chrome in maya. I don't care if it's a shader or whatever. I am trying to make it surrounding a lot of darkness like a dark room. So I am trying not to use a HDR image but right now I will use anything.
Please help me

I'm not sure of what you're really asking, but I downloaded a simple Maya shader called Chrome (basically a Blinn) on Highend3D and I found it very useful.

i used phong and tweeked it and i got chrome
here is the settings
diffuse : 0.00 (nothing is diffused)
specularity : 150
reflectivity : 1.00 (fully reflective)

i don;t know if it works in darkness but it does work.

well it's difficult to make good looking chrome in a more or less empty scene... what makes chrome look cool are the reflection, so if you don't have anything to reflect...
