Chaos Corona for Cinema 4D > [C4D] I need help!

Metal Material Import

(1/2) > >>

Hi there,

I have an issue with metal textures in cinema 4D with corona. They tend to be way to dark and nothing like the preview on e.g. poliigon.
I attached screenshots on how I linked the different maps. If any of you can tell me what I'm doing wrong, I'd appreciate your help!

Hi, you got no images there.
Anyways, is your "Linear Workflow" set and on?

Hi I hope the screenshots did upload now. To be honest, I do not know what "Linear Workflow" in Cinema 4D is....

James Vella:
From what I see you have a few issues here.

- First you are using gamma 2.2 for your linear textures.
- You are also using Metal workflow for Specular textures
- You have a texture in your IOR slot, I dont see an IOR texture in that list.
- These will all compound if you are unsure of what you are doing for this texture set.

You can use the Poliigon C4D tool and do a bit of reading on their website regarding the Specular workflow/textures:

Hi James,

thanks for your answer. Do I need to change that gamma value? I tried downloading the same texture once with metal workflow and once with specular. With the metal workflow I get a good result. With the specular one not. The material is almost completely black.

I was told by someone to put the Reflection map in the IOR slot. That why i did it.

Also thanks for the links, I red the articles.
