its more of an excersize in making a realistic glass material

any suggestions?

i think it looks good… maybe make the glass not so reflective… it looks more like a mirror than clear glass

It doesn’t look at all transparent. It should also probably have a shadow (based on material alpha of course).

Oh and I think it would look better with lower Hard and Spec values.

To have the glass look realistic you would need a lamp with rayshadow on.
Have it have more Fresnel in both the mirror settings and the Ray transp setting.
