View Full Version : Modelling a glass brick wth max ?

04 April 2007, 02:53 PM

i first thought to be able to get something looking good with just some noise as bump map, but finally it doesnt look good enough so i decided to model it.
Do you know how to model and render with max/vray a realistic glass brick ?

Ummm, a glass brick? Umm, well, here, make a material with the specifications like i put below, and tell me if this is close to what you are looking for. This is a texture I made for making ice, I think it should serve the same purpose. Tell me what you think. Its the best thing I have to offer without more information.

Material Type: Reflection

Transparency Material: Falloff

Luminosity Material: Falloff

Bump map: Mix 75

1st slot:Smoke
2nd slot: Dent
Upper transition .7
Lower transition .3
Dont use the curve

See if that works for ya. Its a fast rendering ice texture i made a while ago. Like i said, with all you provided, thats about the best i can give you, without more detail. L8r.
