[REQ] Matte Material

Post by SmartDen » Wed Nov 08, 2006 11:17 pm

Like in 3DSMax. This material can cast and receive shadows but otherwise it doesn't interact with the scene in any way. This could make easy to integrate objects in HDR/EXR Environment or photographs.

indigo has a matte material already. matte=totally diffuse, no specular. what do you mean?!

the POVray post clears it up, i get it now. thanks! sort of just like a 'receiver' material that isnt visible to light but only shadow. thatd be sick, great for compositing renderings with photos.

Ure POV post is a bit clearer :wink: as environment-maps are for stuff which is far away ("environment") from your object ("car"). But your street isn't far away as the car touches it :wink: - logicaly you should model the street as object and not as environment - as i understood this :roll:

But YES, it would be elegant to just get the shadow on a "alpha" object for this case of scene 8) - perhaps in the near or far future it could be a indigo feature :o

I'd rather Indigo get finished with being able to simulate REAL situations before we get into things like that...

ROFL, I don't think it's not useful.. you shouldn't take the request back!

Just that it should be lower priority than other things :)

Hope that some day I'll be able to implement 3d into Photo like this

With that approach this feature will never be implemented (if even possible), and yet is it very useful feature for everyone who is rendering photo matched visualizations.

With the AlphaMask-function and some clever photoshopping, it is already possible.

I don't think it's a big "trick" to specify wether a material prints into alpha or not, it doesnt shift unbiasedness whatsoever but is darn usefull as far as compositing goes + it's very used in profesional environment where unbiased is not an option anyway (for cast say).

awhoops was coming back to vote yes and finally I see ot's old stuff... anyway...
obsolete asset
