Quote from: JeffM on December 08, 2010, 07:25:55 PMI put together a sample file for this tortoise shell effect, the download link is below.I used the advanced material to dial in a base material that gave the kind of transparency/transluncency that the glasses have in their lightest areas. Then made a texture in photoshop, started with rendering some clouds, then a few hits on the difference clouds, blurred the image to soften the patterns and then used the smudge tool to move the details around a bit. This was then a black and white image, but I needed it to be partly transparent, so I just softly color selected the white color and deleted the selection from the image a few times to get my transparency. Saved as a tiff with transparency, and time to go back to KeyShot.I loaded this new texture into the advanced material I worked on for the base plastic of the glasses, but I loaded it as a label. Set the label to "box" map and enable "repeat", this basically makes a second layer on your material that has opaque black areas and transparent areas, based on the texture. Scale and shift the label to get the details where you want them.Here's my quick resultDownload the bip and texture here: http://www.keyshot.com/images/JeffM/Glasses.zip
