Crystal strip

20 March 2018 18:25
Hello,
I want to know if there is a way to make a fake strip with crystals? (attached image)
I mean I dont want to duplicate lots of polygons inside the file for crystals meanwhile I want to keep the effect on the strip .
Can you give me a solution?

This is a complex issue that requires experimentation. You could bake normals of the diamond base to a surface and assign some sparkly matcap texture on it. Then bake normals of the diamonds top to another surface with transparency. Play with textures, note that matcap is a cheapest method to simulate sparkling effects.
