Quick frosted glass

Materials

The quick frosted glass material is a mixture of glass, basic and coating layers. The result of course is not the same as using only a glass Layer but it could save you lots of render time in many cases.

Glass layer

  • Create a glass layer
  • Remove roughness by setting it to 0%
  • Remove reflections
  • Click on the hamburger icon and check reflections
  • Set the reflection color to black

Basic layer

  • Create a basic layer and move it on top of the glass one
  • Set the color to white (RGB: 220,220,220)
  • Adjust the layer weight to a value other than 100% (e.g. 20%)

Coating layer

  • Create a coating layer
  • Adjust the roughness of the reflections based on the look you are after
