I ran into a bit of trouble today, so I remembered an e-mail a friend sent from my Pixels 3D days. It's a big list of refraction indicies, so I slapped them in a PDF. It would be sweet if there was a pulldown in LW :D.::Clicky Clicky:: (http://www.digitalweaponx.net/files.htm)

maybe somebody can make a plugin that would give you a dropdown list and let you paste it into a selected texture selected in the surface window.

Like that DStorm Plugin? It just makes a glass surface.

There is a refraction index on page 1437 of the .pdf manual. The index has been included in every manual since (at least) LW4.

It would probably be a quick job to create a simple ball, assign a refraction index to it, color if needed (for ruby, etc) and save them out as Presets. Keep them all in a "Refraction" folder, and they would always be available.

If no one does it first, I'll put it together next week and post it.

You're right. But as well all know... size matters ;). The one in the PDF has 42 listings. The one from the list I have has 125 and the majority have two indicies :D.
