Glass Lampshade Light Fixtures

Post by Fletch » Wed Apr 14, 2021 4:26 pm

Twilight Render has a Material Template>Lampshade>Gloss or Matte option which works great most of the time.

In some cases, it may not look great, depending how the model is built and which lights are used, but don't despair. There is a great looking lampshade material library which Pro users can get for free here:

In this example, the Glass Lampshade Material Library is used.
The soft warm yellow color in the translucent glass comes from the color of the point lights used.

If you want them, don't forget to also grab the Matte version.
