Attribute spreadsheet - no refletivity attribute?

Hi,

I've been looking at shading in maya for the first time in years. I want to edit the reflectivity attribute of multiple shaders.

If I select a shader/shaders and open the attribute spreadsheet, I can see multiple attributes, diffuse, eccentricity, specular rolloff, even Reflectivity R,G and B - but no reflectivity. Reflectivity R,G and B is no use - what I need is the base reflectivity attribute.

Has anyone else tried this, or have any suggestions please?

thanks,

gubar

It's there in the "All" tab.

You can make the reflectivity keyable if you select the shaders and run this code.

Code:
{
        string $selection[] = `ls -sl 
                -type "blinn" 
                -type "anisotropic" 
                -type "phong" 
                -type "phongE"
                -type "oceanShader"
                -type "hairTubeShader"`;
                
                for($shader in $selection){
                        setAttr -keyable true ($shader +".reflectivity");
                        print ($shader +".reflectivity" + " is now keyable\n");
                }
                print "Job done!\n";
                
}
Maya may have a more UI friendly way of doing this but I've never found it haha.user added image

No problem user added image, sometimes Maya isn't the most intuitive.

Apparently in 2014 the attribute spreadsheet is searchable? I haven't tried it, but that would be sweet.
