The ultimate DVD Shader
-bundled with an authentic model
With the rise of online streaming services DVDs might seem like an almost antiquated technology, but they can still be found here and there. And here comes the Problem: Unlike most other materials a DVDs surface can´t easily be described as a combination of diffuse and a glossy shader. With its unique surface it is a difficult object to design a shader for.
So be glad that you don´t have to do that! Because this DVD model comes with an elaborate shader to recreate all of the detailed refractions and diffractions of a real disc. Take a look:
