Default Potion


I've made this with a curve. I would like to know how I can:
1. Make it look like glass and transparant for what's inside.
2. But fluid in it.
EDIT: I've made some changes to the potion bottle:

With the transparency, its pretty straightforward. In your Attributes editor under 'lambert' (or whatever shader you choose) set the transparency to 3 qtrs (near white).

As for fluids. Go to

They have a cool plugin for Maya, that creates realistic fluids. Check it out. They have a demo version, which means the fluid wont show up when you batch render but still will when you render images.

Im using it. I want the full version but its like 400 something and has a few bugs. Coz its built for 3DSMAX. For Maya, its not as good or indepth.

good luck
those who succeed are only the failures that never gave up.
