Just as a small reminder, this can also be done within Cheetah3D, the image node has a value (no color) output and with a gradient it can easily be inverted and adjusted for brightness to get real black and white.Luckily the reflective area was one color so it was easy to make a reflection mask.
White for the reflective area and black for no reflectivity, no problem in PS.
Hi @Swizl - thanks for the intro and the story! Very inspiring and it does give me hope. Give me 10+ years and I hope to speak the same language as you guys with your pivots, booleans and polys. But I am learning. I have a LinkedIn Learning Subscription so I'm in the middle of an intro to 3D video by George Maistri - and then I want to dive headlong into all the C3D tutorials once I have a better understanding of the basics. It's a real mind-bender as I have been a 2D artist for so long! Drew portraits and cartoons by hand as a schoolkid for money and started as an airbrush Illustrator - the real thing - until I was wooed, cajoled and seduced by Photoshop in 1994 as a junior designer and have never looked back, so to get into 3D is tricky for my brain that's been so 2D focused all my life, but I am very eager to learn this new skill. All my packaging illustration is done in Photoshop and I want more flexibility to change angles and views rather than redo them from scratch as you do in Photoshop!
It's not as easy as I imagined, thinking with 25 plus years experience as an artist and an experienced creative how hard can it be - but it's a LOT more complex than I gave it credit. I will, however, persevere and I will tame this new beast on my plate! And I love the C3D software. The others, Blender in particular, look way too daunting and I need some real 3D work to justify getting C4D / Autodesk Maya or something like that - so C3D is perfect for me! Thanks for all the positive and inspirational messages and help on my first wobbly project guys!!
Sorry you're having issues with that. Does your computer have an Nvidia graphics card? Octane render will only work with an Nvidia card and CUDA drivers.Hi friend.could you can help me download a OCtane render for modo12 on Mac ?my acconut always show error ..I bought a class on udemy,but I found that the render is octane ! my computer is Apple Mac ,have octance

The makers of Octane (Otoy) do have a version they are working on that has a non-public beta called OctaneX. That's supposed to work with AMD cards, but hasn't been release yet.
