if you need to make your object fully glass ,,
is it best to make your object smooth by making a lot of polygons ( thousands or millions of polygons ) OR you can make it as much as little of polygons )

thanks

You just need to use as many polygons as you need to define the shape. More polygons won't make the glass itself any better.

Dear cagey5:

Thanks ,,, I saw many job that many guys done in Glass ,, but I'm confused in the designing the object ... If I'll make one polygon is it help when I apply the textures or I have triple it many times and then subdivided it that will help ...

thanks

Not too sure what to add here nnabdu. If you can model the object you want, then it doesn't matter what type of material you are rendering it in. Glass, on a plain solid colour you should use the same number of polygons.

There is no need for lots of polys unless you are going to be deforming the surface for detail.

But that is only to do with detail and not whether it is to be made of glass.

You should try to use smoothing. These two spheres are made using the Modeler Tools and are identical apart from their colour and the fact that the green sphere has smoothing applied at 30 degrees. You can see that there aren't enough polygons because the edges of the sphere are showing.

It's looking like a good start, but you need something else in your environment. Glass is not very interesting without things to make it interesting.

The scene isn't much use without the .lwo objects, in this case New-perfume-Roses.lwo
