Hey,

 

Anyone know how to create this non-specular gradient over the top of glass like this:

You could either mask a Layer in the Reflectance channel or add another layer of geo slightly above  the existing geo and mask that via Alpha.

  • Thanks guys.

    @natevplas thankyou very much for putting that together — Nailed it! The issue I have now is that that as I'm using Octane and the materials don't translate very well. Would you know anything about that?

    You can do the same thing in octane with a Blend Material. But instead you use the gradient between the two materials, the lower one being the glass, the upper one being the coating you want to blend.
