Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

How to create a painted metal shader

Hi, I was experimenting a little bit yesterday with how to create a realistic looking metal that has a layer of paint on top like pipes. I tried the basic approach of setting metal to 1 and having the albedo be the colour that I wanted the paint but it doesn't come out looking like paint, more so like a stained metal or a metal that is somehow naturally that colour.

Since paint isn't metal, i'm thinking that the metal setting should not be set to 1 and maybe something like 0.7 or 0.5. I'm not quite sure. Is there any method for doing this properly that somebody has figured out yet?

Hey Rezblue -

Here is an example of an overpainted metallic that I did recently for another project. Follow the true path for the painted metal logic.
