The standard Glass shader gives you exactly that. Or if you prefer Principled BSDF like me: Set Transmission to 1 Use Roughness and Transmission roughness to control the glass type Add thickness to your glass for realistic results Suzanne on one side, and a black material on the other to make a mirror To make this work in Eevee enable Refraction in the ...

I had the same question, and I believe that this value under Scene Properties>Render>Light Paths>Max Bounces>Volume. When there's a surface material on the volume, it always takes at least one bounce to get into the volume. I believe this defaults to 0.

Let's think like a photographer. Proper lighting is essential - white background, strong backlight, fitting HDRi Shader - Principled BSDF will do (let's keep it simple) Use post-processing - adjusting midtone contrast, color-corrections Outer Seed shader: Roughness - pretty low, it needs to reflect environment and not obstruct transmission Clearcoat - ...

Some of your faces don't have smooth shading. They are shaded flat, creating those ugly triangular artifacts. Just right click you model and select smooth shading.

Just a quick look and I figure it out. Every mesh has two materials applied. Deleting one of them will solve the problem. The bad news is: You must repeat it with every mesh.

Yes there is a small reason behind this. This happens because when we remove a shape-key object's vertex data is changed to the current shape-key state which have to be rcalculated so for removing lags or software crash. That's why you can't delete shape key in edit mode. Whereas in concern to the materials the can be applied, removed and added in edit mode....

I'm not sure if you're asking how to assign multiple Materials to the same Mesh or how to split one Object into two. If you just want to Split a Mesh into two, the easiest way is to select all faces you need, hit "P" and then click "By Selection". To create a 2. Material go to the Materials Tab and hit the "+" icon. Select all the faces you want to share ...

You can use the outliner to filter the scene collection by name. So you can use it in order to search using the material name. Once done select all the filtered objects using A in the outliner.

You can press shift+L, then press T, click on materials and check the screen where all objects are listed and find which object is also selected (while being in Object Mode).

First, you can do it in the 3D Viewport only. Find a View menu, and click the Viewport Render Animation. It will render the animation right from the viewport, using EEVEE if in solid or material preview mode. If you disable screen overlays, you can easily get nice renders in EEVEE this way, however, this is limited and inaccurate (not enough screen samples ...

I lowered the "Specular" slider for the objects material that has the image using the shading tab. I did this for each object that has an image.

They behave differently if the Active object has less Material slots than the Selected object: Copy deletes all slots and add those existing in of the active object Link replace only the first slots, and keep the extra slots unchanged.

3D software needs to interpret faces with 3 or 4 vertices. Everything else is called n-gon. In this case you have an n-gon with around 26 vertices. Select this face, hit x, delete just this face. than select two vertices in corners (drawing), press F to create edges between them, than fill everything out. With 3 faces this should be solved. You can also try ...

Install Material Utils Addon, select object or multiple objects, press Q and go ASSIGN MATERIAL. It's much easier than all these options..

The Settings panel from your first screenshot is from the Cycles render engine. The second screenshot shows a project where Eevee is the current render engine. The render engine can be changed in the Render Properties tab.

Use a texture to drive a bump node. Plug Bump's "normal" output into the normal input of the Principled BSDF node. I can make a voronoi texture small enough to represent closely packed balls or bubbles. Then I can colour them as a group with a noisy texture. This hides the fact that each ball is not really coloured. Finally I use a 4D texture to animate the ...

ᴊᴀᴄʜʏᴍ ᴍɪᴄʜᴀʟ totally answered it. I have added three control values to make it a little more customizable for my needs. Here's my node group, based off of their excellent work!

I've googled one BlenderArtists solution, that also works reasonably well for a tube. All credits to PyBlend You can use an Empty to control it. Otherwise it uses object's origin point.

You can use the Light Path node in your colored object's material. Then, the object's reflections will be monochromatic. Connect the Is Reflection Ray output into the FAC input of a mix shader.

Solution below, and no you are not, a little explanation first: Regarding the menus you had there, the material index might be possible to copy to other objects, but i'm honestly not sure what that would do. The menu from the name, well the other objects would not accept the string value, as objects can not have the same name. While right clicking on the ...

While the .mtl format has options for defining displacement, the obj exporter add-on currently doesn't support them.

Use bpy.data.materials.create_gpencil_data(mat) to add grease pencil material settings import bpy context = bpy.context space = context.space_data # Create material for grease pencil if "Bright Material" in bpy.data.materials.keys(): gp_mat = bpy.data.materials["Bright Material"] else: gp_mat = bpy.data.materials.new("Bright Material") if not ...

This is trivial to achieve using normal based effects like Fresnel. You can use it both for the color gradient, and the shader transition from glossy to emission shader. A layer Weight Node should give you both the Facing socket for the colors and a Fresnel socket for the shaders. Drive it through a Color Ramp node to control the color progression ...

Something like this could get you close. There's lots of tweaking you could still do and this isn't physically accurate in any way, shape or form. Play around with the Mix Shader inputs and the IOR settings of the Fresnel nodes.

The best solution I have found so far is to create a new grease pencil stroke object, modify its material as desired, then delete the stroke object but keep the material, which can then be assigned to new grease pencil objects, as below. If a more elegant solution exists, please share! def get_gp_material(): # Create a stroke object, modify its ...

You cannot directly mix different materials. Turn one of them into a node group, and it will work. Turn Material 01 into a Node group Add the new Node group into Material 02 using a mix shader Connect Gradient texture and use ColorRamp to control the gradient Create a nodegroup from one of your materials. Add the new node group into the other material ...

Yes, Vertex Groups doesn't work. In Blender 2.81 (or more), I use Face Maps. It works like Vertex Groups but it is for face. I am not sure if 2.81 is the oldest version that has this feature.

This is actually easy. You can assign custom materials per face selection. Select your shoe's rubber part in EDIT MODE (yes, select poly faces), then go to the material tab, select "+" make a new material, and this new material will automatically get assigned to the rubber part of your shoe. Do the same thing for the leather part (select in edit mode your ...

This can be accomplished by using the UV Map node (Input > UV Map), it allows you to select one of the UV maps associated with the object. The Texture Coordinate node always uses the active UV map.

In your ColorRamp node you can set the mode from "constant" to "linear", then add as many control points as you need to get the desired "blurring".

I had the same issue and I solved it by going into Edit mode, select all faces, click on Alt + N and choose Flip. Turns out normals were flipped and messing up the volume

OKAY ! So finally, after playing around with various scripts found on this website, assembling them, we found out we had taken it the wrong way, as blender workflow is different from maya. The material is applied after in maya, and before in blender. The solution is a simple script that asks objects from the scene to be applied a premade material. In maya, ...

You can access through the horizontal menu bar > Object > Rigid Body.

For reference: Blender 2.81+ includes the shader ball as part of the material preview, so you do not need to download the .blend for it. It is extremely helpful, (and quite realistic too), for showing materials.

You could cheat this: Duplicate your mesh: Mesh A has Material X, Mesh B has Material Y. Then use a transparency node, or animate your alpha, to toggle between them. I'm doing product renders, so different combinations of materials need to stay consistent. Keyframing each, now that I've already made the materials and had them reviewed, would be a bummer. ...

I needed to deselect Selected Only from the Curve Editor header and use the search bar or enter all the nested properties of the material. The material had to be selected within the project panel where you see all your object hierarchy. After that I could add keyframes, and use Shift + E to add a Cycle F-Curve modifier.

A few things to try: 1) Select the new object, and remove the old material, then add a new material. This should disconnect the material of the new object from the old one. 2) Select the old object and go to Object > Apply > Make duplicates real. This will make the duplicates connected to the object (in case somehow the object is a duplicate) a real object....

If you want to make the object transparent, their are 2 ways to do that: Use transparent material (as you have already used), Add it to a mix shader whith the respective shader you want it to mix with and change the blend mode for the object to "Alpha blend". Now, you use this method when you want to create an object with just transparency, that means ...

You cannot bake the "node tree" itself to use it directly in the shader node editor of another program like Unity, Unreal engine or Substance painter. But you can bake the resulting maps (albedo, roughness, metallic, alpha value...) and then apply them in another software as if they were regular textures. See : for texture baking How do I bake a texture ...

I've had a similar problem today with an object I created using the screw modifier. It turned out that for some face loops the normals were pointing in the wrong (opposite) direction and especially the bottom of your object looks to me as if it needs some normal recalculation. I suggest enable the display of face orientation to verify.

This is caused by a reflection of the background world behind the plane. If you change the world color, or increase the size of the plane, the blackness will disappear.

I've got some results using this method: emission + inverted ColorRamp. Using Eevee + Bloom the result looks immediately better, but I still have to fine-tune it for cycles. Problem is that either the light emitted is too weak or the bulb gets too white. I've also tried Filmic Blender with similar results.
