PBR Metal Spheres
« on: July 01, 2019, 01:23:46 AM »
Here's an example project that uses PBR metal textures from cc0textures.com.

It uses the path tracer and robust adaptive sampling which works best in 4.4 and above. It should also render in 4.3, but 4.4 will be faster.

You will need to download the textures from here: https://cc0textures.com/view.php?tex=Metal05

The displacement amplitude was too high, causing hard edges in the lighting at the terminators.

Reducing the displacement amplitude to 0.003 gives this:
