Rendering Metal Mesh Curtains

Recommended Posts

Any ideas on how to render metal mesh curtains such as those by Cascade Coil?  It'd be great to do a video walk-through with lighting or projections on a semi-transparent, highly reflective and sinuous mesh.

If you search for Metal Mesh in the Resource Manager, you'll find some great examples of textures which utilise a transparency mask. These, when rendered with a Renderworks mode, will give the effect of metal mesh.

Is it possible to get a highly reflective, metallic rendering?

Hi Tamsin, can you please tell me what I am doing wrong as I don't get any results when I search for Metal Mesh?

Where it says "Symbols/Plug-in Objects" - change that dropdown to "Renderworks Textures" then search again.

Yes! You would think though when you ask the RM to search "Everywhere" it would actually mean everywhere...

 

Thanks Andy.

This video tells me there are no symbols called "metal mesh".

I learned the hard way to always set the type of resource I need, then type what I am looking for.

Also, a good idea is to check out the mtexture library. More and more I find cool goodies here. Available in v2019
