Join Zaheer Mukhtar for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding details to the base texture in DDO, part of 3ds Max: Stylized Environment for Animation.
- [Instructor] I will now finish my material…by creating some more material over this surface,…but the first thing I'm going to do…is view my material here,…and I will click on 3DO here…to view my material in real time.…Here is my 3D0 Viewer,…and if I wanted to rotate my object,…I will hold Alt + Left Mouse Button to rotate my object,…and I also need to rotate my light,…so I will hold Shift + Left Mouse Button and drag it,…so I can rotate the light and see the surface.…
Now, the bump or the normal map is perfectly fine,…but I have a bit of a problem with the extra detail,…like I said before,…so I'm going to go back into my folder…and choose the base layer,…and I will slightly bring down the texture intensity.…In fact, I will bring it down to about 19.…And the other thing I'm going to do is change the color,…so I will click the Edit Reflectance…and pick this color over here…which we picked from our reference image,…and I'm going to make it kind of more darker, and hit OK.…
And now this material has been updated.…
First, Zaheer explores artistic ways to block out the basic forms of your structure, such as using exaggerated proportions and irregular, tilted shapes. Next, he shows how to add details to the forms. Then he demonstrates how to add the more stylized elements including textures, imported materials, color refinements, and lighting. He wraps up the course by wrapping up the workflow, making final render passes and preparing the scene for export. Along the way, he covers art creation, modeling, compositing, and more.
