Maya car paint shader needed .....

hey ,

does anyone know where i can get a shader for car paint for maya 4.5 or 5 .....?

i know about the one on highend 3d but that doesnt look right ...i have too much flakes in it .....if they are no more shaders can anyone help me get rid of all those flakes ?

theres a video tutorial on for creating a car paint shader. if you're just tryin' to get rid of the flakes, delete the texture or otherwise edit the texture to lessen their noticability.

if it's the same car paint shader from Highend3d that i think it is
(thanks to Christer Dahl or KaraMuraT, not sure who to thank)

then do like TheWraith said, edit the shader.

here's what you can do:

open up the attribute editor for the car paint shader,
then scroll down to Specular Color and click on the input box

then either lower the Cell Size or the Density.

or you could change Color 1, 2 and 3 to match it to the color
you want, this will make the flakes less noticable.

hope that helps
