Months ago I asked how to make angled chrome texture: How to create a chrome texture? Since I use EEVEE, I'm using the option @Robbin Betts recommend. Remaining issue is that in orthographic view that typical chrome-like angled look disappears.

So I tried to slightly tilt the X axis to get proper reflection (on my text) but if I use the image texture in orthographic view its more visible. During the animation when it rotates it looks kinda fake:

Q: Is there a way to improve the chrome nodes, or animation to give it a more realistic appearance? I also have a Blender file to share the animation if someone wants to have a look at it.

    $\begingroup$ Added the link to your previous question otherwise your question is incomprehensible to others. However, the second paragrpah: "(on my text) but if I use the image texture in orthographic view its more visible. During the animation when it rotates it looks kinda fake..." is still a mess. What text are you talking about? What animation are you talking about? $\endgroup$ – brockmann Sep 1 '20 at 8:29

    $\begingroup$ Hello :). Environment reflections are very limited in orthographic view (they're basically just one color) which does look a bit fake (orthographic view itself also can't be achieved with a real camera). $\endgroup$ – Jachym Michal Sep 1 '20 at 10:37

    $\begingroup$ @JachymMichal has nailed the reason.. I wonder if there's a get-around? $\endgroup$ – Robin Betts Sep 1 '20 at 14:14
