    I have decided to also look at coloured lenses .... so adding that to my tutorial.

    Here is a red lense test I am working on. :)

    I have been working with iray - testing lense textures for car headlights. I hope to get the updated tutorial online in a few weeks. I will show an updated Mental Ray texture and the iray texture.

    Here is the iray render of a spherical car headlight.

    I am just putting the final touches to a tutorial showing the full texture setup for Mental Ray. Here is a preview, and a rendered image. Hopefully online in the next few days.
