velvet with minnaert shader

hey

was anybody successful to create some
convinging looking velvet with blenders
minnaert shader? everything I try is verything
but not velvet. somehow always the highlights
are very wrong.

claas

Use something like Ref=1.0, Dark=1.2.
I think the description in the manual is plain wrong. It’s exactly the otherway round.

Mh than we are two who think so.

somehow this shader works funny. also the specular highlights seem not always be right
at least not when i compare the render results with my velvet samples i have for my own work.
yep started to go more into apearl design.

I am not sure what it is, but something is strange with the blender version.
