Material Definition 2021

Recommended Posts

I can not adjust materials to make them look dull in rendering. Using Adjust Material Definition, to say in properties-options-shininess i set it to DULL, it is still reflective and shiny on the rendering. Toggle reflection doesn't change anything. I noticed that materials which do not have checked by default any of shininess options, are showing dull in rendering, but i can not uncheck if one of the definition is already checked and changing them to shiny or matte or dull still keep them being reflective in rendering. It looks pretty odd, like, shiny glossy reflective wood or travertine. WHat do I do wrong?? Last update is downloaded.

Answers often depend on which title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2018, 2019 etc) you are using.

 

You can help everyone by adding that info to your signature (see below for how to turn them on) by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click Account Settings, then Signature on the left.

 

Doing so makes it always available, and keeps others from having to hunt for it.

 

And, turn on signature display too.

Draw a new, one room plan using your problem floor material. Attach it (close Pro first) and I'll have a look.
