Creating Ambient Occlusion with transparency texture– Tutorial In my previous post Dissecting the mib_amb_occlusion node. I talked about using transparency in Ambient occlusion, but I didn’t really cover the subject of using texture with alpha and having that casing AO on the nearby object. In this simple scene we have a texture file with alpha assigned to a separate geometry. If we would to render, we get this result. A complete IOR list Here's a long list with ior values you can use when you create various materials and liquids and much more. This is a compilation of various ior lists scattered all around the web, so there may be duplicates in the list but they're there for comparison purposes and so you can pick either ior value that fits your specific needs.

VRAYforC4D Official Site Multi Layered BRDF Materials The best render engine is worthless if the materials doesn't behave fully correct according to natural laws of light. For physical calculation one needs a true physical Material (=BRDF) inside the core. In V-Ray the BRDF Material is not an added effect only in reflection channel as in internal C4d renderer p.e., it is in deep in the V-Ray core, calibrated, to work physically correct together with GI, light, reflection, refraction, absorption and scattering. It is based on true BSDF/BRDF code and brings highly realistic physical material behavior, and last not least perfect and physical based subsurface scattering (fast SSS2, refractive SSS), all at V-Ray light speed!
