Reflective shaders will allow you to use a Cubemap which will be reflected on your mesh. You can also define areas of more or less reflectivity on your object through the alpha channel of the Base texture. High reflectivity is a great effect for glosses, oils, chrome, etc. Low reflectivity can add effect for metals, liquid surfaces, or video monitors.

Reflective Vertex-Lit

shader-ReflectiveVertexLit
shader-ReflectiveVertexLit

Assets needed:

  • One Base texture with alpha channel for defining reflective areas
  • One Reflection Cubemap for Reflection Map

Reflective Diffuse

shader-ReflectiveDiffuse
shader-ReflectiveDiffuse

Assets needed:

  • One Base texture with alpha channel for defining reflective areas
  • One Reflection Cubemap for Reflection Map

Reflective Specular

shader-ReflectiveSpecular
shader-ReflectiveSpecular

Assets needed:

  • One Base texture with alpha channel for defining reflective areas & Specular Map combined
  • One Reflection Cubemap for Reflection Map

Note: One consideration for this shader is that the Base texture’s alpha channel will double as both the reflective areas and the Specular Map.

  • One Reflection Cubemap for Reflection Map
  • One Normal map, no alpha channel required

  • One Reflection Cubemap for Reflection Map
  • One Normal map normal map, no alpha channel required

Note: One consideration for this shader is that the Base texture’s alpha channel will double as both the reflective areas and the Specular Map.
