Suggested white paint for best ray trace results

Recommended Posts

Happy New Year!

 

What white paint for walls gives the best result after ray tracing?

 

I am doing a white bathroom with gloss cabinets and polished tiles. 

 

Small window and balance of light source from cans.

 

Thank you in advance for your help.

 

Kind regards, Tamela

Graham , in the "Lets Raytrace Thread" suggested using 102 Arctic (White)  which IIRC is actually in the Formica Catalog under Solid Elements, in the Library .

 

I copied it to my User Library and renamed it as my "Cabinet White".

So far I find it to be pretty good. I use several versions of it for my white cabinets, trim and ceiling. Just change the sheen level (roughness). For the ceiling I set it between 80 - 100% for a flat finish, trims about 30% for a pearl finish and about the same for my cabinets. For gloss cabinets I would change it to reflective(X9) and might go up as high as 70%.
