View Full Version : anisotropic help

04 April 2008, 10:45 PM
I would like to give some smooth reflections to a metal cage with the anisotropic shader but I have no clue of how to use it; I looked through the docs, and the scene files but nothing... can anyone be so kind to let me, and others, know where to plug in this node and which would be the basic settings?

Thanx to everyone,

With nodes there is of course many possibilities but I usually have it "add" it to radiance and just stretch it it a bit.

Thanx Ulven,
do you also have some bitmap entering the anisotropic shader, and how are you're reflective paramaters set?
I'm sorry to bug you but I'm trying to get every info I can since there is no other reference I can find:)
