Satin finishes

Question asked by Matt Graves on Dec 1, 2008
Latest reply on Dec 5, 2008 by Matt Graves
I love the satin finish illumination settings in 2009, but they tend to make the final material too dark. I've tweaked everything that can be tweaked and they still end up too dark when compared to my other materials in the same scene. If I bump up the lighting to compensate, all the other materials are washed out.

While I'm waiting for SW to add a "diffuse" and/or "ambient" slider to the satin finish settings, does anyone know of a backdoor way to tweak these? Or has anyone had any luck simulating satin metal finishes using other settings?
