Hi everyone! I’m Josh and I’m brand new here and to blender, I’ve only been playing with blender on and off for about 5 days now and I’ve learned to make a donut and a cup of coffee.
So I’ve decided to move on after the coffee and donut, I decided to start working on a lightsaber to try new things and I’m having trouble with my materials displaying properly.
No matter which way I go about this I am having no luck, I’ve loaded new scenes and just made a sphere and duplicated the value’s/new lighting etc and I keep getting the same result.
The issue is I have created a new material for my lightsabers body, I have set the color to a light grey and turned metallic all the way up as well and lowering the roughness. Yet the material still doesn’t display on the body properly like in my donut/coffee render.
I can get the material to show up like a mirror in material preview but not in rendered.
As you can see the material show’s in the preview window on the right beautifully but I just can’t get it to lay on the mesh properly, is there some step I am missing that I forgot about during my other render? I’ve watched a few other “metal tutorial” video’s and it is the same steps I am currently taking yet they display on the mesh during rendered and mine does not.
Thank you in advance!
