Hello I am currently trying to reproduce the reflection map model from 3ds max. I have something like : baseColor + Coeff x ReflectionColor I have a bit of a problem with the coeff Value. 3ds Max privide an amount from 0 to 100 for the reflection map. The problem is after some tests the result color does not change in a linear way as i modify the amount. For example if i have a sphere with any texture and a White Reflection (255,255,255) the sphere becomes completly white at approximatly 33%. If anyone has an idea on that, i would be very gratefull.

Try to blend instead of just adding the reflection map:
(1-Coeff)*baseColor + Coeff * ReflectionColor

Also note that you will need to divide the coeff by 100 to put it into the 0-1 range. If you select 75 then it will be 0.75, if you select 20 it will be 0.2, and so on.

(1 - (Coeff / 100)) * baseColor + (Coeff / 100) * ReflectionColor
