Product Information

  • Required Products: None

A popular classic, now for Iray! Four beautiful sparkly designs in sixty five (65) colors each. These 260 are full Iray Uber shader presets, just pick one you like, adjust the scale with one of the nine included tile scale presets if needed, and render! The starry design also has five transparency level partial presets and three star strength partials. The velvet design includes four partial presets to add a metallic dot design in gold, silver, or copper, or remove it if desired. Base textures are all greyscale but each color has been carefully crafted, the majority of the effect is done with glossiness so these are are not simple diffuse color changes. Always test render to see the true colors- the view-port is deceiving, especially with the special bi-color and tri-color presets.

Changes from the 3Delight version: Updated texture maps to work better with Iray, and these will not overwrite the originals so you can have both installed without worry. Starry transparency is now done with partial presets and has more level options, and strength of the stars can now be changed with partials. Metallic design on the velvet is now done with partial presets and has 2 more color options. All 4 designs have received three new colors: gold, silver, and copper.

Happy kit-bashing!

Additional Details

  • To use shader presets you must have the figure(s) or prop(s) selected in the Scene Tab and the material zone(s) you want to change selected in the Surface Tab, this is easiest to do with Surface Selection Tool. You can hold down the control (command) key to select multiple surfaces at the same time.
  • If you need a color that's not represented in the 65 presets choose the color that is closest in hue and level to what you need and then change the Base Color, you may also need to change the Glossy Color and Top Coat Color depending on how far you are deviating from the original, especially if you want less saturated version as most of the effect is from those two glossy channels. Only attempt to adjust the bi-color and tri-color presets (K through T) if you are very familiar with how Iray shaders work and have a good deal of time on your hands to do test renders, small changes in any channel with those have a huge effect on the outcome.
