Lamp Shade

Recommended Posts

I am in need of a quick tutorial on how to create a glowing lamp shade.  In all the videos I have seen they start with 2 Sided Material as a base.  However, I can not find that option anywhere in the Vray editor or in the materials library.  Anyone have a solution that they have found that works well?

Here is one tutorial

Thanks for your help

I will answer my own question here.  After many hours of searching for a  solution that mimics all the tutorials out there I have gotten word from Tech that this feature does not exist in the current release of Vray for Form.z.  They plan on including it in the upcoming V9 release now that they have become aware of it.  So if you need a glowing lamp shade or a back light object with semi opacity you are out of luck for now.  Photoshop to the rescue again!

Andrew,

I created the image below by using the emissive option of the Vray material. Applied a texture map from photoshop and a glow factor of 2. Maybe you can use a more convincing photoshoped glowing fabric, and maybe that will do?
