I am soooo desperate I’ve been trying to make those materials for 2 months but with no acceptable results.
Let me explain what I’m struggling to do.
I want to make ice columns like in the movie: I tried with glass, mixing with glossy, adding bump maps of ice, cracked ice etc., emission and so on, but it also glows inside… Adding volume emission… I get strange shaped light bulb instead of icy columns. So I tried to use volume scattering with putting lamps inside object, but it looked like white-muddy water in bumped tank.
Next thing are those frames that glows purple on the columns and I guess that those “doors” are the same material or pretty similar. I was doing pretty much as much as my experience with blender let me to do, but again with no acceptable results.
I have some textures, some of them I made myself in photoshop and I think they are good enough.
I belive that making those materials is possible in cycles, because I’ve seen more stunning materials made with it and I hope it’s just my poor (just over a year) experience.
If you need I can share textures I’m working with
Here’s a reference and I beg you for some help (node setups )
