ok you won’t deserve a newbie question from me but still what do you think is the best material settings(spec,hard etc.) for a sports-car when you are not using env-maps?
Well, I haven’t tested, but mid hard and high spec sounds right to me.
Hard < 30
Spec > 1.0
Ref > 0.9
Spec color (white but with a bit of the general color)
Also, in addition to the base material settings, try playing with the HUE, SATURATION and VALUE settings under the HSV button. This usually helps get a better material as well.
