Tips for Creating Glass Materials With Arnold

Academic Phoenix Plus Walks Through Creating Glass Materials in Arnold Using aiStandardSurface

Monica from the Academic Phoenix Plus channel hosts a look into getting started creating glass materials using Arnold in Maya 2018. If you are not familiar with the visual aspects of glass, and how they relate to the attributes in a standard Arnold material, then this is a great place to start.

Monica covers using the aiStandardSurface shader in Arnold, walking through transmission, opacity and all the other attributes that need to change to make a realistic but straightforward glass material.

Academic Phoenix Plus regularly posts tutorials like this one, so make sure that you visit the channel on youtube, and visit their site for more information.
