Hello EJ, i was wondering if there is a technique to speed up the render of blurry reflections without using roughness ? Great tut, always nice to re-learn the basics !

Every week. I’m in…

Loved this tutorial! Can you also do a tutorial on how to choose which HDRIs look good etc? I was using a similair map to yours but never understood how you got those highlights on the caps. In my case the entire extruded portion and edge gets highlighted

Fantastic tutorial, thank you very much. Somehow when I’m using Noise in the Reflection Channel, it looks like animated film grain.I tried to google about this issue but couldn’t find any answers.
