Join Aaron F. Ross for an in-depth discussion in this video Remapping colors with Arnold Ramp RGB, part of 3ds Max: Tips, Tricks and Techniques.
- [Instructor] The 3ds Max gradient ramp map … gives us the ability to arbitrarily remap … the colors of another map. … In other words, we can feed a texture … into the gradient ramp … and change that texture's color palette. … That is super useful in cases such as this terrain. … Let's take a look. … I'll render this using ActiveShade on frame zero … because starting on frame one, … we've got some clouds that will slow down the rendering. … When that renders, we can see that we've got … a nice color here on the rocks … representing mineral-rich desert rocks. … What I've done here is I've taken a grayscale noise … and piped it through a gradient ramp map … to change the color palette. … That does work fine. … However, the gradient ramp map has some limitations. … With the introduction of the Arnold ramp RGB map, … we now have much better control over the remapping … of one color palette onto another. … Let's take a look; I'll open up the material editor. … Here's the shading network currently. …
