I am working on a web application and would like to forgo the need for loading a heavy Hdr for creating a sky reflection on my materials.
I can not bake the material onto the meshes as the users should be able to choose between a number of glossy and mat materials.
So far I used a jpg texture which works reasonably well but still takes loading time.
Now I was wondering if I could somehow fake this cloud reflection somehow by adding noise nodes or similar to the glossy mater.
The setup should have a directional component which makes the reflection only visible from certain angles.
Note, the Hdri used previously is not used for scene lighting and is only visible on the reflections so far.
Not sure if this is possible at all.
