Have you tried a Material from Scratch and using the Metallic Shader ?


Diffuse : Black or 0% Brightness


Reflection : Metallic > Gold

Reflection 100% (Because Dimming is done by Color Value)

Roughness to your liking

Scratches to your liking


Transparency OFF

Bump (better OFF too)


That is the most physically based correctness you can get in VW or C4D.

you should find the color RGB for Gold Reflections in the www.

Try the Glass Reflection and try that color instead of the Black setting

and with brighter, nearly white, from that Gold Color where White was.

The rest stays the same.
