A low Roughness such as this Glossy Paint will give us a very shiny polished surface. A high Roughness such as this Matte Paint will give us a matte finish or no discernible highlights. Additionally, of course, we’ve already seen the Base Color, but there’s also a parameter here for the amount of the Base Color.

And likewise with this Glossy Paint, to use the full amount of this color, I can double click on that and set its Base Color amount to one as well. And then I can control the colors more accurately by adjusting this Base Color swatch. So those are some real basic parameters of a Physical Material. The most important thing to keep in mind is the Roughness. If the Roughness has a value of one, there will be no visibile reflection, but if Roughness has a value of zero, it will be a perfect mirror reflection. We’ll take a look at that in the following movie.
