Title: architectural glass
Post by: campanella on January 19, 2011, 01:07:42 am
Hi,

is there a way to create architectural glass for facades? I couldn't get a nice result with glass settings. I want to create green, blue or grey opac glasses with reflections.

ciao campanella, devi usare delle texture colorate per il vetro cioè importare in lumion il vetro texturizzato e poi agire sulla barra texture influence della finestra dei materiali. Laugh

English version : hello campanella, in preparing the model, you must use the texture to color the glass. After you import the model so on lumion. you must act on the "texture Influence" bar of the window  of materials. It also works in lumion version you have. you must act on the bar opacity.

The glass shader allows this. If you check out the materials tutorial you can see how you can change the color of glass.

Hi,

 I know the color settings, but opacity doesn't make any big affect on material as you can see in the picture. I tried on many old projects but couldn't get a good architectural glass. It is always transparent.

You have a picture of the effect you are trying to achieve?

I guess he means tinted opaque reflective glass?

I didn't use google language tools but havent slept for 3 days for a modelling project. I meant tinted opaque reflective glass but this material is called architectural glass in architectural terminology and in many 3d softwares such as max. With lumion, it is nearly impossible to control opacity, glass material is always transparent, if it is opaque then the color turns into black.

Hehe I meant I'm glad I had Google Language Tools to translate Santana's reply. I'm not fluent in Italian Cool

EDIT: That's better, Santana - thanks for translating it :)

I've added your request to the Functionality wish list:


Hope you get some sleep soon, Campanella!
