Easy Metal - Custom Shader for Iray. Setting up realistic and nice looking metals or metallic effects in Iray is sometimes not that easy.

This product includes a custom metal shader for the Iray render engine that enables you to set up different metals in any color and any metallicity easily. Perfect for all kind of metals. High gloss metals, blunt metals, brushed and structured metals. All you need comes with this custom shader.

For basic metals only a few settings have to be made, like the metal color and the metallicity. In some easy steps you get your metal surface. Channels for bump and normal maps are available as well to use your own maps. Most channels support image maps too. More advanced settings are possible too, like outer layer effect, metallic flakes effect and glossiness adjustments. Tiling and Offset settings are available as well.

To quickly start there are 70 presets of realistic metals included (35 polished and 35 brushed metals), like Steel, Gold, Silver, Titanium etc.
Several other presets for gradient effect metals, surface structure, glimmer effect etc. are included too.

A very versatile and useful custom shader that enables you to set up metals with ease.

As a little bonus two props are included: a safe and an ingot prop. There are several material presets for the ingot and the safe included.
