Using standard material and reflective texture on one surface


Recommended Posts


I want to attach a standard material and a reflective texture on the same surface. I have jpg's for both. I tried to use multi-material:

                var ematerial = new BABYLON.StandardMaterial("wall_wood", scene);
                ematerial.emissiveTexture = new BABYLON.Texture("wall_wood.jpg", scene);

                var rmaterial = new BABYLON.Texture("wall_wood_r", scene);
                rmaterial.reflectionTexture = new BABYLON.Texture("wall_wood_r.jpg", scene);
                rmaterial.reflectionTexture.coordinatesMode = BABYLON.Texture.PLANAR_MODE;

                var multimat = new BABYLON.MultiMaterial("multimat", scene);

                mesh.material = multimat;

This did not work as expected.

How can I achieve this? Is custom shader the way to go?

We did not proceed this way (we removed reflection).

In general, for reflection to work, you need 3 things:

1: surface/mesh to reflect on: it can have texture

2: meshes/objects that need to be reflected: to be added in the renderlist of the mesh in point 1

3: light: should fall on the mesh in point 1

@leanderr can you elaborate on what you try to achieve? This seems not related to original question.

"I want to attach a standard material and a reflective texture on the same surface." (Original Question)

And Second I want to blend the Grid Material and a Standard Material with a certain Ratio / Alpha / Alphamap (from Grid).

Here are my Attempts so far. http://babylonjs-playground.com/#5S6MD#11

I replied to first question already (just use a stdmaterial which support reflective texture)

For your second question: the grid material is a material and meshes can only have one material so you need to have two meshes with the second one transparent to simulate the blending. Multimaterial cannot be used here because it is not for blending. It is used when you want to have some part of the mesh with one material and some with another material
