…Glass of course is one of those material types that most of…us come into contact with on pretty much a daily basis, in one form or another.…So the chances that we will want or…need to recreate glass objects on a rendering project are probably quite high.…Now compared to older 3ds Max shaders such as the standard, raytrace, and…even architectural materials, the metal ray AD shader really does…make creating a whole range of realistic glass types a pretty quick, simple, and…painless task, as we will demonstrate here.…
As we did with our shelf material, let's make a start here by opening up…the material editor and creating a new slate view called Champagne Glasses.…We will naturally want to drag out a new A and D material for ourselves and then over…in the parameter editor name, it as per our view, namely Champagne Glasses again.…Then over in lay manager, we can go ahead and…select all of the glass geometry in the scene and then right click on…our material header and choose the assigned material to selection option.…
