Lovin' it, man, you're really getting amazing at this. I wonder how you did the dirty windshield effect on the tractor, put a texture on a glass material? Rock on!

Thanks for hulking me up guys.

Alex S, Shout out buddy.

The dirty windshield went like this:

Its a blinn material with the reflectivity and the specularity turned down. Then, I made a 512 x 512 map that had 3 sections to it:

-colour (I took a picture of a dirty windshield)
-Transparency (grayscale)
-Diffuse (grayscale)


The colour map gave me that nice dirtiness

The transparency map gave me the ability to create the impression that the glass is faintly see through and let me create wiper streaks

The diffuse map tells the object how much light it can receive in certain areas, I used this to tone down the acceptance of light in the windshield corners. It gave it an extra kick of dirtiness and age.

Voila!



Yes, im a nerd.
