Hello. I’m new to Flamingo nXt 5 but I’ve been using Flamingo nXt for a long time. I don’t know how to change reflective finish on decals in Flamingo nXt 5. It looks like it’s off. And I’ve done it in previous version, so could someone tell me how to do that, please?

here’s how it looks like in Flamingo nXt (3.1):

here are material properties:

and decal settings:

In Flamingo nXt5 I prepared material:

But there are no options to change Reflective finish values so all I can get is this non-reflective decal:

How can I achieve same result as in previous version?

Thanks for the report and your file. Unfortunately, the best solution I have is to use the older Flamingo nXt for these decal features. The issue is that nXt 5 which integrates nXt into the Rhino 5 rendering tools has also taken a step backwards in the decal features. You can have both nXt and nXt 5 installed on the same Rhino 5.

I filed this issue as https://mcneel.myjetbrains.com/youtrack/issue/RH-40153 and hopefully it can be looked at soon.

I understand. I’ll be using older version for these for now then. Thank you very much for your quick reply!
