I followed this tutorial on eyes exactly, but the outer layer does not render correctly.

I've tried other methods but with no luck.

Nothing suprising, you have the inner parts that is unwrapped OK, but no material is assigned to it, you need to create one and assign it the texture that you want. End of story.

  • $\begingroup$ I'm not concerned with the inner eyes, I want the outer eyes to have a transparent glass effect like the one in the tutorial. They have the material assigned to it, as done in the video, but I'm not getting the effect. $\endgroup$ – LittleBlueWraith Sep 15 '18 at 19:35
  • $\begingroup$ If you look at a ball of glass in space you wont see it... that's what happening. Don't worry that glass is fine. Just make the inner eye and it will give something to be looked inside the glass (refraction), then you could add an environment texture to get reflections. $\endgroup$ – Yvain Sep 15 '18 at 20:10
  • $\begingroup$ The tutorial video didn't require an environment texture to get reflections. And what exactly do you mean by "environment texture"? Like just a background? Also, I added a material to the eye and I'm still not getting a glass effect. $\endgroup$ – LittleBlueWraith Sep 15 '18 at 21:10
  • $\begingroup$ You have to fix the colliding meshes, the inner part doesn't fit inside the outer. Appart from that, glass is tricky, even in real life it can be surprising. I mean environment texture, go to the "world" panel, set "use nodes", and there is a background material, here you can set the color to "environment texture", a simple hdri picture will do. cgskies.com textures.com $\endgroup$ – Yvain Sep 15 '18 at 22:03
  • $\begingroup$ It still isn't working. Here's the file where I've done everything you've said. <img src="https://blend-exchange.giantcowfilms.com/embedImage.png?bid=5266" /> $\endgroup$ – LittleBlueWraith Sep 16 '18 at 17:49
