Glass tutorial request.


Recommended Posts

I have searched through the tutorials a number of times but I have never come across one about making clear glass objects. There are glassy buttons, glassy orbs,glassy marbles but no plain clear glass tuts.

I don`t suppose anyone would care to make one please? I know it would be another glass tut but as it would be for something not yet covered it might be a handy addition to the tut menu.

I have often tried to make glass myself, but never been able to work it out. Maybe it is just a case of adapting an existing tut in a way I have not thought of yet. Either way a tut would be much appreciated.

Thanks very much.

Well, I think the main reason a glass tut hasn't been made is because it is really hard to make. I mean, I've been using Paint.NET for a while and I still don't have the hang of making glass objects yet :| .....

I remember Ash saying that he was in the process of making a glass tut, but again it is rather complicated. It would probably take a while to make a good glass piece, let alone write a tut about making one.

There might be one in the future though, so don't fret :wink:

Oh, and if it helps, one good tip on making a glass object would be filling the canvas with a semi-transparent fill and then using S3D. Then play around with angles and lighting.

I suppose I could make a tut if this is good enough.

I wouldn't lock it if you did. :-)

And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

Here's my try at a glass ball.

The shadow is messed up and it could use some :AntiAliasingOn: , but its pretty good for a first try.

Please do! I have tried a few times to make one of these but this particular glass effect still eludes me.

That`s an excellent first go!
