View Full Version : Material Diffuse

09 September 2007, 02:31 PM
does anyone know a good online resource which gives diffuse qualities for various material? what i have in mind would like materials like wood, brick, stone, glass, etc. and give their diffuse qualities based on some sort of scientific research. in the back of an ooooooold lightwave manual i remember they had listed several material diffuse settings but i haven't found anything similar since.

thanks in advance.

thanks for the texture library link but what i'm looking for is something that tells me how much light a material absorbs and reflects. for example glass has 0 diffuse but is 98% reflective. i would imagine that brick is .6 diffuse and has no reflective qualities and very minimal specular.

hope that helps clarify what i'm looking for.

I'm interested in seeing a chart like this as well!
