There was a question about metal, so i decided to make a quick metal video, here it is 🙂

Make sure you delete the specular channel in your reflectance. It’s ugly and shouldn’t be there :))

In short: Make a new material, set the color to black, enable reflectance, delete the default specular layer in reflectance, add a GGX layer, scroll down to fresnel settings. Select “conductor” pick a preset if you want, or just set the blurriness manually. Ta-da!
