Hello,

I am a new user from Octane. I try to make a material like this "silver color" on the picture. Can help me someone what settings I should use to make this?

Regards,

Jochen

You have to correct the scale base on your object and adjust here and there some values:

Wow it looks very cool. Thank you very much for the help. Is it possible that I open this material in Cinema 4D with Octane Plugin?

Yes sure, in Live Viewer, choose Import ORBX from the File menu:

Hi jochen,
just add another color correction node between the clamp node and the diffuse pin and reduce its power as needed.
