Default Chrome Texture

Hi all,

I was wondering if it is possible to create a Chrome texture from scratch in Maya? If it can, how is it done? I use Maya 2008.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Default mia material

don't know if 2008 already contains that shader, but have you tried using the mia_material_x shader? there are pretty neat presets. i quite like that chrome preset. basic but easy
