Title: Materials
Post by: Hannes on January 11, 2017, 03:58:06 PM
Here are some basic materials, some more or less advanced and some absolutely unnecessary ones.
You have to copy the material from the appropriate object.

EDIT: ...or download them as TGCs. File attached.

Have fun.

Cool. Let's hope this is finally the start of a Materials Library sticky !

Here's a contribution - very corroded metal or bird guano  :). I set up my tgd with a materials group so it could serve as a template if anyone wanted to use it just substitute any new material nodes and they will be used on the one meter and two meter spheres.

Yes, sticky would be great. At the moment I am thinking how this could be organised. Some sort of a library, where everyone can contribute and find materials easily.

Btw, I just wanted to mention that my reference object has about the same size like Fleetwood's. Makes things easier.

Fantastic, thank you guys! The aged bronze in particular is something I have to use asap, that's just so inspiring!

It brings up my pet peeve once again that we need a searchable organized file share library/gallery with multiple preview renders (if available) per file, user comments and maybe even a rating system. A forum is just not the right place once it grows over a certain size (and it has years ago). Because of the space requirements it would be best kept under the Planetside domain. IMHO it would greatly enhance the appeal of Terragen to a large portion of the target user base.

Should have stuck with it. Was fashionable in some pretty high trumpet circles to play an unvarnished funky looking trumpet. Better tone, they said.

I 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.

I agree re:"A master can make a student grade instrument sound good and a student can make a master grade instrument sound awful."

and the price of a very nice hand built 3/4 size classical even by a local good but non famous builder(I was gifted one by a builder friend) start around 2000 dollars; the replacement price for insurance purposes was stated at $2600.00....but I got my lovely sounding beat to shit 1958 0017 all mahogany Martin guitar for $600.00 in a used instrument store, but have to insure it at $4000.00 replacement. It's a sliding scale involving luck I've found.

Gran Perla Granite Material v0.1 by WASasquatch
This 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.

I have been playing with this a little. Instead of one general reflective shader, I took a few of your color merges one step further, adding another merge shader and mixing with a glass shader with a reflection tint. I went light gold / even coppery or yellowish and had some highlights. I will try to post later, time crunch today. At any rate I have a new texture based on yours!
Title: Re: Materials
Post by: Oshyan on March 24, 2018, 07:30:05 PM
Probably not much reason to use a full Glass Shader here, the transparency won't be seen even in close-ups (and is not entirely appropriate for mica anyway), and all you need is reflectivity. That can be had in the Default Shader or a Reflective Shader, without the render time cost of the Glass Shader. But good ideas and tinkering, looking forward to seeing what you came up with!

Oh okay. I get it about the glass shader. I will rework and test this some more. Even without polished reflection, this combo of shaders WASasquatch has shared in the granite file is a great mix.

Awesome colour variation and scale work, it looks like a type of grainy quartz marble.

I would love to see Dune take a crack at the Mica reflections. He's done great work with ice crystals for snow.

Object Scale: 1 Meter

Scale effect quality: I do not think so. Applied this to a cube, feeding into surface shader with a transform input (world space, final position) with all xyz scale at 100. The cube is displaced again with a PF before the object surface shader node as well.

I will just say one big THANKS! and download anything you share. okay? :)

Yes, that is a wonderful image! The texture shown is on a pretty big cube, but you can scale it with the transform (even into decimals if necessary). I always open the preview there (on the last merge or transform) to judge. If it looks too white, just change a color... :)

Fantasy granite light applied to simple building

Slight changes to WASasquatch's granite setup. Thanks again for those!

Inside these complex clips you often find merge nodes. I mess with those, vary the amount of mix, the type of mix: all, raise highest, cut away lowest. Then in the merge mode select a function in color for some interesting results. Most of you use a paint program and should be familiar with this.  :)

Fluffy Moss Shader v1

Working on another version but my ideas have hit some road blocks. Simple surface shader with complex internal node network. I spend a lot of time on small details and mixing, sometimes it pays off, other times it doesn't.

In this case I find the moss looks pretty good. Even close. And that's at a MPD 0.6 and AA 6 limitation, though I did bump GI cache and detail to 4, and Occlusion Weight (I believe it was) to 2 (feel it helps with fine detail being sharp)

These are some test images of a cold blue ice shader test.
Just a glass shader node.The settings are kinda excessive. Play with them like you want.
The first image crashed after 82 hours of rendering at the GI step :(  So it is just a screenshot of the render view.
I think the base was an edited version from AP with voronoi displacement (VoronoiRockComplex4 probably).
Second image is my own different setup.

Not a material but this place looked more relevant for post this.

I wanted to see how the "Index of refraction" looks with negative values.
Over -1 it looks problematic (black). If you go lower (-1.00001 looks like the lowest) you get kind of this effect.
I animated that from -10 to -1.00001 in the two GIF's.
