Creating a Basic Metal material

Materials

Metals can be created by using a Basic or Glossy Layer. The only difference when using the Basic Layer is that the Diffuse Color needs to be set as (R0,G0,B0).

Creating a Gold material:

  • Start with a Glossy Layer
  • Set the Reflection Color to R249 G211 B137.
  • Change the Index of Refraction (n) value to 0.27035 and Extinction Coefficient (k) to 2.7790.

The n and k values have been taken from the refractiveindex.info website.
