    Default New Chrome-Effects with ReflectionMaps

    I play with the Eye Candy 4000 Demo -> Chrome Effects.
    New Settings and new ReflectionMaps (Gradients).

    Make follow Settings and Save this under new Name:
    BASIC:
    1. Bevel Width = 5
    2. Bevel High = 66
    3. Smoothness = 44
    4. Ripple Thichkness = 45
    5. Ripple Width = 119.33
    6. Bevel Placement = Inside marquee

    LIGHTING:
    1. Direction = 135
    2. Inclination = 45
    3. Highlight Size = 40
    4. Highlight Color = white
    5. Tint Amount = 100
    6. Tint Color = white

    BEVEL PROFILE:
    Button

    Go to Menue Setting and "SAVE" under new Name (like - Spezial).

    The Setting is dependent on character size, possibly must it depending upon character size be adapted!

    The Gradient-Files musst be copy in the Folder for the Eye Candy Settings -> ReflectionMaps!

    As far as I can tell, EC is hard wired to allow only its reflection maps. Curious about new reflection maps.

    In English

    I played with further ReflectionMaps, which I would not like to withhold from you.
    With CorelPhoto Paint stored TIFF' s were not recognized!
    I store the Tiff' s with the Magix photo designer. It would make me happy, if you provide your results with those of me to Reflections post became.

    Thanks CMONE,

    I think it must be a matter of TIF flavor. I saved from Photoshop and the file was recognized. I thought there may be a size problen as well. This enviroment is somewhat larger than what I saw in the resource folder.

    Some of my environment used in SBP and E3. They will need to be changed to TIF.

    Thanx, very nice.
    But I could obtain the best effects, if I use color Gradients (elliptically, right parallelepiped, linear), best with repetitions (1x or 2x).
    I hope Babelfish translate everything correctly.

    Thanks for the pointer on the [Reflection Maps]. Although I don't know why you had to explain all the [chrome] settings.

    Maybe Google translate would be better.

    Thanks again, here's my experimenting:
