Difference between classic and metallic spray?

Can anyone explain to me, possibly a show pics, comparison between classic and metallic spray for cars?

 

Maybe its my eyes getting old, but I just cant really tell the difference between them besides the fact that I can apply extra 'highlights' to the metallic spray.

Metallic reflects more (at least thats what it looks like in LS Customs) and allows the pearl highlights.

If you cannot easily tell the difference, the problem is either your eyes or your monitor/TV.

 

The metallic coats are much more reflective, and you can also add pearlescent colors (colored reflection).

Thanks for the input.

 

So I suppose metallic is just a shinier version of classic, which allows me to add highlights.

Yes.

Metallic really stands out with movement.

 

If you're just looking at classic vs metallic of the same color sitting in the customs shop, without moving the camera around I suppose they might look similar... You've got to circle the car and view from different angles to see the major differences.

I usually see chrome sprays on trollers with their troll car of choice.

long version - metallic paint has bits of glass in it that create tiny reflections of their own size,giving that "metal" look. gloss paint (classic) has no glass in it and gets its reflection from a clear-coat of resin paint.

 

tl;dr version - metallic paint looks more like metal than classic paint does.

Truly the only difference from 360/PS3 is that the classic colors don't have the pearlescent paint that the metallic paint has. I don't see "glass bits" on the metallic paint unless it's CG/PC only.

 

I just use classic paints because they're cheaper and then use the license plate glitch to put pearlescent on the classic paint. It gives you the exact same results without you having to spend the money.
