Creating a Glass material

Materials

Simple Glass

  • Create a Glossy layer.
  • Set Reflectance and Transmittance to White.
  • Set Roughness to a lower value, 1%.

Change the Transmittance color in order to control the transparency but also the overall color of the Glass material.

Frosted Glass

  • Create a Glossy layer.
  • Set Reflectance and Transmittance to White.
  • Increase Roughness.

 Glass with absorption

  • Create a Glossy layer.
  • Set Reflectance and Transmittance to White.
  • Select a color for Absorption.
  • Increase the Absorption value depending on the object’s size.

The Absorption color will be more visible in places where the object is thicker.

Glass with dispersion

  • Create a Glossy layer.
  • Set Reflectance and Transmittance to White.
  • Turn on the Abbe option to enable dispersion.
