I've created text with an array of lightbulbs inside of it, sort of like a marquee above a casino. I would like to have a reflective texture on the inside to reflect the lightbulbs and a matte finish on the outside. Is there any way to separate the inner and outer surfaces? So far I've only been able to add different textures to the fillets and caps.

Thanks.

You can use two separate materials, specifying front and back in the texture tags' "side" parameter.
