In this series of lessons we will learn how to simulate the light-scattering appearance of a diffraction grating, which can be seen when looking at the surface of a CD or a DVD. While Maya may not have the capability to simulate a true diffraction grating, we can create a shading network that can very closely mimic the effect. We will learn how to use ramps, layered shaders, anisotropic materials, texture placement nodes, and specular lights to create a realistic rendered CD.

Lesson Outline (4 lessons)

1. Introduction: anisotropic material setup
2. Creating initial diffraction grating reflections
3. Layering multiple shaders to enhance CD reflections
4. Finalizing the rendered CD

* Project files are included
