This hot metal shader set brings a dramatic radiance to your props, vehicles, weapons, figures, and landscapes while providing functional lighting for your interior and exterior scenes. These shaders are built from photos of real metal (copper, aluminum, brass, bronze, chrome, gold, iron, and steel) and can easily be rotated to match the UV’s of your object or figure.
Included are eight cold metal shaders, five that glow red hot straight from the forge, and three anodized that radiate a spectrum of high temperature color. To expand the usage and provide more options, there are 24 utility shaders that can be applied to any of the base shaders or other surfaces. You can retain the default texture maps of your characters and props, as 20 of the adjustment shaders only affect emissive channels.
For more realism you want your emissive surfaces to cast light onto other props rather than just lighting the object itself. This set provides functional lighting without sacrificing the color and brightness of the incandescent surfaces. Five light sets that match the multi-colored shaders are included. These groups of point lights provide soft light that can be scaled.
