General discussion about the development of the open source Blender

Hullo blender users. Is there anyone who may explain to me how I can render fairly reflective glass window which also are translucent with a bluish color tint for an exterior architectural visualisation? I have tried out several times but I get only two results: at one side, the windows act like mirrors (100% reflective and no color tint) and towards another side in the same render the windows appear fairly reflective but there seems to be like a reflection of a big difference cutting through the middle of windows on one side. I am using blender 2.49a, python 2.6.2 and YafaRay.1.0. Everything seems to be fine apart from how my window glass is behaving. Please help. Thanks.
Thanks for your reply, much appreciated. But my mirror color was already set with a color I like "39639F". Problem is it either shows it too dark or completely reflective. My alpha is set at 0.051 in my material settings. Could it be my settings in the material for YafaRay? When I render with blender internal it seems to do what it should do, but yafaray is not computing it right.tsgfilmwerks wrote:For mirror colors, you could look at the RGB values for mirror color (same panel as regular colors). To make it translucent: lower the alpha, use ray transparency, and lower the "Gloss" value (frosted glass effect).
