Since the release of 4.0, and now the 5.0 daily builds, are we still supposed to disable Fresnel IOR with color map set to RGB 10,000 when using Siger Complex Fresnel in Refl Color slot, or was this issue resolved?
Thanks for any help.

I always thought it's enough to set IOR to max value and then just use it in the reflection slot... and that didn't look wrong to me. Did I use it the wrong way all the time?!

I think both ways work. Dubcat's wiki says to set IOR to 999.

Yup, a couple of versions ago, the maximum amount for IOR was increased, so you don't need to disable it with an extra node anymore, just set it to the highest number.
