WIP

I need to find some beverage for the glasses.

I also need to define the suitable level of it.

More important, which glass would you pick ?

Those reflections are impressive. :)

I'll have the leftmost glass, part filled with an amber liquid.

I would tend to prefer the lighter ones.
For the content, light yellow as for white wine and make it sparkly in 
the more conical on the right, or dark ruby red in the left ones as for 
some nice porto.
For the wines, about 3/4 to 4/5 full. For the porto, about half full.

3rd glass from the right. I like it's shape and sort-of translucent quality, not
quite crystal-clear.

 That was my original choice too, before I looked at anyone else's.

 Looking at them more, I think the left most of either shape.  At least a dark
liquid Lowes might bring out the muted reflections,  and bright things either
refracted or seen transparently through them might show about right.

I like the leftmost.

They are all pretty good. By instinct, I would pick third from left with 
2/3 full of Bourgogne (aligoté if you want).

Note to self: carefully read the text on smartphone when using talk instead of
type. Lowes is a home/hardware store in case anyone out there is wondering what
beverage I might have been saying, others of you might have guessed the mistake.

Seeing the image a 3rd time my eyes were drawn to that 3rd from right glass
again, and the 3rd from left. Both look very much the same too, aside from
shape. So maybe I should have stayed with my 1st choice. ;)

To be frank, I don't find any of them particularly convincing. Most of
them seem to "swallow" light, while the 2nd from the left of each batch
seem to "emit" light.

For genuinely convincing glass material, I think it is essential...

- to control any desired tint via distance-based attenuation (`fade_*`
in interior block) rather than pigment (i.e. use `rgbt 1.0` as pigment)

- to control the balance between reflection and transmission via the
fresnel mechanism (realistic `ior` in interior block; `reflection { 1.0
fresnel on } conserve_energy` in the finish block)

It may also help to control the brightness of highlights via physical
parameters rather than tweaking (i.e. use `specular albedo 1.0` and
`fresnel on` directly in the finish block).


Of course it is also essential to provide a good environment to reflect,
and maybe the "not particularly convincing" impression I get might just
be due to the simple checker pattern. I'm not sure about that one.

The question I have is how to best simulate interface between the glass 
and a liquid without incurring either a coincident surface or spurious 
IOR changes due to non-coincident surfaces.
