I try to make stainless steel effect, but I don't understand why rendered image in the top panel is not like in the material preview frame in the right panel ?

enter image description here


It is not the same because you haven't applied smooth shade to your material. However there could be more reasons(like: weird settings setup in the render tab or word tab)

  • $\begingroup$ I think the correct question is why it doesnt look the same.Thats because the above, plus because your light setups are different. $\endgroup$ – xlxs Nov 8 '16 at 23:35

  • $\begingroup$ On tutorials about how to make Glossy Images, there 2 planes perpendiculars which wrap up the Glossy objects, maybe that is the solution $\endgroup$ – mobile_beginner_2015 Nov 9 '16 at 0:58

    $\begingroup$ The 2 perpendiculars mesh planes are indeed the solution, in fact it creates a good lighting effect $\endgroup$ – mobile_beginner_2015 Nov 9 '16 at 1:04
