Join Brian Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video Augmenting a substance using Max nodes, part of 3ds Max: Substance to Arnold.
- [Instructor] Let's imagine that,…having brought our scene to its current state,…we're looking at the latest test render,…which of course is where we actually…ended the previous exercise,…and have decided that the wall behind our robot…needs to look a little more weathered,…a little more grungy, shall we say.…Well, if we open up the material editor…using the M key and in the wall tab…double click to load up the exposed substance parameters,…we do have a bunch of controls with which we could work,…one of which is called Moss_Amount.…Unfortunately, though, we would find…on investigation that this option…controls the intensity of moss color in the texture…rather than giving us a way to spread the moss…across the surface of the wall,…which is what I wanted to do.…
