ice blocks with frosty edges

Hi guys

I am creating an ice shader and I just want to make the edges of the ice blocks look frosty and where the I have flat planes to have more transparency.

Any ideas?

thank you

Any ice shaders will be helpful too.

Hi vlad,

I was trying to find an older post where someone made some procedural shaders in Softimage that would be exactly what you would need, however I couldn't find that link anymore. But I did find these for you.

(This might help you in setting up an edge shader so you can determine what will have the frost vs Ice based on edges/corners);threadid=40600

(This one shows a user's setup with an outline in how he made is Ice and Snow)

If I come across that post I am still looking for, I will definitely post it here. In the mean time, I hope these help.
