Quote from: fleetwood on February 27, 2017, 08:40:44 PMI really do think the varnish thing is a combination of fashion and economics. Tone is 99% in the human touch and skill IMO. A master can make a student grade instrument sound good and a student can make a master grade instrument sound awful. Considering a new top notch sax can cost upwards of $10K (check prices of Yanagisawa saxes) it's not surprising someone might stick with an older great sounding one with no finish left.
Quote from: WASasquatch on March 23, 2018, 04:10:17 PMGran Perla Granite Material v0.1 by WASasquatchThis surface shader is designed to match the the look and feel of Gran Perla granite. A type of granite primarily made up of Quartz, Feldspar, Horneblende, and Biolite, with a small percentage of Mica. This has been designed at relatively real-world scales, and is best viewed somewhat close or it will begin diffusing and looking like normal stone, as granite does.The only downside to this is reflections from Mic will be few and far between as I am not able to figure out how to get the reflection I want. I spent hours at it, maybe someone else can help.
