Marc first discusses some theoretical concepts to consider when creating metallic car paint materials. Next, he outlines how to apply these principles via the Lumas shader in Release 15.

Then Marc demonstrates how the techniques apply using Reflectance in Release 16. Marc provides an overview of the Reflectance channel, diffuse models and masking & fresnel, followed by his recipe for metallic car paint using R16 Reflectance.

Demonstrating another project for Audi, Marc shows how he set up the lighting and reflections to achieve a realistic render.

Recorded live at IBC 2014 in Amsterdam
