DIAMOND TEST WITH C4d

Dear friends...

Attached image is for testing perpose... Let me to have some opinions...

I have used one keylight only...




I am gonna fake the dispersion little in the image... but i need to ask in which channel it would be better to fake it? i mean in reflection, or specular color, or etc...

Suggestions are most welcome...

Regards

Jeet.

Hello Jeet,

By the very nature of a diamond, without flaws, IMO you do not
need dispersion. If you look at photos and real life diamonds, they
are always sharp and clear.

If anything, and I stress "ANYTHING", adding a sky may lend more
visual interest. From that point on, it's a matter of personal taste.

Hope that helps

Then it's hard to say what to adjust since I'm not that fortunate
in having a diamond in hand. If you like, I can adjust your file
to see if I can make some adjustments. Another thing you may do
is to take a digital photo of it against a neutral backgeound and
see if you see what the camera sees. From there, it may be easier
to make your determination.

Hi, Jeet,

Check out the Spectral Magic plug in. Its free for 7 days.
And look at what kind of light you are using. Use full spectrum, or about 5000 Kelvins, I think.
And be sure to set your refractive index.
I agree with you, the water white look is not what diamonds look like.
You can also get a good jpg, and put it in as a Texture. Its totally "fake" but can make for some awsome renders if you're not a purist about rendering.
Good luck, diamonds are tough.
cheers,
glyptic

with dispersion it is not meant blurry but the effect of spectral color...

Thankx for your comments..

In reflection channel i have used simple gradient between black and white.

Transparency channel i have used 3 color gradient of white black and light-sky color

and the dispersion i have faked with rainbow colors in specular color channel..

scene contains one keylight only.

still i want to achieve the following realism...



regards
