rendering a glass

Recommended Posts

hi guys,

 

I'm trying to render this beer glass, i've attached a screen shot of my current render, but obviously you can't see the beer its too dark.. i'm assuming its something to do with the outer glass itself.. perhaps something I've not checked?

 

any help would be great

 

thanks

How transparent is your beer? it looks a bit 'thick', also your glass looks a little thick and it seems to be top lit. Its a set up issue I think.

You need to redo your beer material. It should be very close to the glass material, which seems ok.

Disable color channel and in transparency, try decreasing absorption distance.

Consider placing area light behind the glass to get more interesting look.
