Make a new attribute Class, String:dielectric

new attribute IOR,Float (about 1.33 for glass, amount of refraction)

new attribute UnitDistance, Float (larger the number, less strong the colour)

The ART attributes will only show up in a render, not in the working screen.

They're working fine, but there's nothing behind them to refract so it looks normal.

Put on the ground grid to see the refraction. 
(but wait a long time for the render)

I have a question about the attributes. There are only those which are described on web page or there are more? And is there a tut about them (all)?

Ok, sorry, don't beat me :D My english are not good and i can't understand some things and attributes were one of them. I just couldn't figure out how to get them work. Then downloaded all the examples and saw what exactly must to type and now i just have started trying them out. I have read the manual but the downloaded one( for the 0.95 ) which doesn't include the ART part. Because there are many guys who make plugins and other stuff for Anim8or I thought maybe there is something that I couldn't figure out and they can help . And about the manual on web, yes i have read it too and I think you meen the last sentence. Just wanted to make it sure. Sorry.:-\

Thank you very much!!! :) That's what i thought. All the attributes that exist, are presented on the ART's page. Just wanted to be sure, as said before. Thank you again ;)
