in the moment I try to work with realistic looking metal surfaces. So I did some tutorials from Andrew Price. The results were pretty good. But Andrew is always working with cycles. And this pulls down the speed of the PC-system. I have tried then to work with nodes. But the results were not so good. Now I’m looking for some tutorials about chrome and shiny metal but without cycles. And I hope to find some informations here in the forum. I work with Blender 2.66.
