Hi all, I’ve been trying to complete a snowman scene and I have two different materials wool and snow. I’m trying to create the effect of a light layer of snow collecting on the snow mans hat, gloves, ect. but I’ve been experiencing a problem separating my materials by height. I’m using the separate xyz node and it seems to appear normally in material preview but when I render it out its not separated correctly and the snow layer is covering the wool parts completely. I’ve tried all different things, including moving the position of the xyz node to different places but to no avail. Its just not behaving as it should. What am I doing wrong or missing? Any help would be greatly appreciated and thank you in advance!
Alright, I messed around and got something for you to look at. Don’t really understand how it works, but it appears to do what I think you want. This is with blender version 3.3.1. snow-mitten.blend (1.0 MB)
