Phys Fresnel T

Physically accurate fresnel reflections, diffuse and transparency.

The custom fresnel effect is controlled using "Index of Refraction" in the fresnel waveform layer (modo limits this to 5.0). You need to enter the same value into the "Refractive Index" of the material for correct refraction. I have found a way around the limits using "User Channels", which can be downloaded here:

If you don't need transparency, use the version found here, which has a simpler shader tree:
