Guys I have modeled this soda can and I am trying to get the "brushed aluminum look but to no great look. I have also down loaded a preset from preset central and thats not helping either.

I am sure this can be accomplished with nodes and thats why I am asking, as I don't even know where to begin to start something to look like aluminum.

What I come up with is more of a chrome look which is not near close real. Please look at the images attached.

Thanks,

Ok well I started out with the presets like I said but I guess Im loco and just could not understand it.

So I played around with with the surface editor and put these properties to it and below is what i got. I know not the best but its a start no the less.

Doesn't look exactly but by the time i was done, my brain was hurting.

Any extra help would be great.

Blurry reflection + a nice contrasty HDRI, dont overwee. Once it is visually pleasing nobody gives a f*** about realism.

In Advanced you have controls for them.
There is also dozen ways in node editor.

Did you see mine video tutorials How To Control Reflections?

Use nodes. Use conductor. Turn on blur reflections. Tweak roughness/spec vals to taste.

First off, thanks for the other videos you have on youtube. I just watch one on rendering as thats what I am trying to learn and accomplish.

Second thanks for the quick guidance into nodes. As I also see that you have videos on nodes, I will watch them as well.

Thanks
