Away3D diamond

by Fabrice Closier Away3D diamond

I've turned 40 this weekend, so i thought it would be nice to celebrate... First idea was: i do a cake! Nah... doesn't shine... Since Away3D is now able to create anything looking expensive like gold or silver, i thought, what's the most expensive material on earth? Diamonds of course! Everyone who has played with transparent objects knows you need alpha info, and then... well here it comes, what comes next? You need something to move light! So most go for double geometry, above each other. Did that too, but then you get a z-sorting artifact, all faces are swapping on and off. Useless. So i've updated the enviroMaterial again to render faces another way... Enjoy the Away3D diamond! The right amount of shinyness and face count! Fabrice
