Cinerender - polycarbonate render

Anonymous
Not applicable
I am really struggling to create a good quality render using Cinerender. I am trying to render my design which is made up of polycarbonate panels. Could anybody please help me with what would be a good setting to use to create this polycaronate effect?

Thanks,
Holly

Have you had any luck? I have the same problem right now and I wonder how to get polycarbonate in Cinerender.

Too broad of a category. Can you show an example of the texture and color in the polycarbonate you need?

not at computer now to post zip file with material. Corrugated profile is easy to get using roof acesssry tool. Convert to morph and rotate to virtical. Apply the material.

Thanks for the tip. In the meantime we have decided to use a flat polycarbonate surface. Any idea on how to render the material? I don't seem t be able to find any on the net. I am trying with an opaque glass material but not quite what I am looking for.

I've just made a simple research on google and found this

On the left you find the textures for each channel ...

Shouldn't be too difficult to get the desired effect
