Reflection

  • Use numbers around 70% to 80* for reflective floors, etc.
  • Use numbers very close to 100% for a mirror.

Metallic

A metallic refection is more reflective and keeps more of the existing material visible.

For an example, see: Metallic Reflection

Glossy

Glossy Reflection does not reflect images precisely.

For an example, see: Glossy Reflection

Fresnel

Fresnel Reflection increases the reflectivity of surfaces at glancing angles, but not at perpendicular angles.

For an example, see: Fresnel Reflection

Glow

  • You cannot set both reflection and glow on a face. If you do only glow will be used.
  • Self glow does not create a light. Instead, it makes the object glow as if it was illuminated. This is useful for neon lights, or images in windows which would have been illuminated from an interior light.

Translucency

Sets a translucent effect which allows light to pass through the material (such as a lampshade), but does not let the eye see through the material.

Select Shade to create a translucent material.
