Mad Men tumbler
« on: May 08, 2011, 04:02:26 pm »
A few weeks ago I learned about rendering glass and a liquid from the great feedback and insights learned here. I've been meaning to post this render to get feedback.

I used the setting Indirect Illumination for the first time to see what it would do. Also, if it's not clear, I wanted to add the metalizing effect to the top area of the glass as was done for a particular line of glass wear in the 1960's. I used chrome and it's not exactly the effect, but it works for now. I also tried a less successful version with a black background to try to mimic the shot on he Mad Men DVD/blu ray cover art.

Neat!  As in "the only way to drink scotch"!  No ice cubes to water down the rendering...

Hej great render! I need to fill a martini glass with a liquid could you give me some advice? I know that I need to model a small space between my solids. Do you have more than 1 solid for your liquid? And were do I find some settings?

Tnx

Tnx, Here I've got a try. I think I need to change the solid of the glass. The foot is flat so It creates a white surface.
I'm not entirely happy with the result  :( Tnx for the link!

Thanks for comments guys. The irony is I don't drink!

Chillout, the thread that really helped me understand the process to rendering glass and a liquid is this one:

There is no air gap between the glass and the liquid solids. I used to think you needed to have the glass and liquid solids touching or intersecting a little. Study the thread I linked to.
