I believe there is a glitch in blender. When I move the metalic shader in the principled bsdf it is completely unresponsive. I am unable to make the trash bin metalic. I tried uninstalling blender with no result.

Here is the blend file: https://dropmefiles.com/VoaUy

Sorry but you forgot to press Use Nodes button in material setup panel:

Metall Use nodes


Metal cannot have Emission Your Shader Node has white emission value

  • $\begingroup$ Thank you @RUben, but I don't understand because the Rim of the garbage can is still white. It is not metallic, even when I use the metallic slider with the "use nodes" selected. It looks like in the photo you provided it is also still white, not metallic. $\endgroup$
