C4Dtut: Realistic Glass Mat by sicklizard C4Dtut: Realistic Glass Mat by sicklizard
At very first, let me apologize for all the typos. I was in a hurry and additionally, there were some friends of mine at my place, so I couldnīt concentrate that well....
I will change that ASAP....

An explanation of the C4D transparency.

How you create realistic glass with correct reflections.
How to create opaque materials with the tranparency absorption.

To put liquid in it, itīs important that the liquid doesnīt "touch" the glass. To get the best result, the glass and the liquid should slightly overlap. (with slightly, I mean less than 0.01 units)
That will create the most realistic refraction.
I suggest you to set ray depth to 7 or 8 and reflection depth to 3 to 5.

Good explanation!

ich benutze zwar c4d nicht aber trotzdem sind die basics in jedem 3d programm gleich.
