Adding texture with shaders

Quite often when you create metallic materials they look a little too perfect and too shiny. And one of the things that sets Cinema 4D Lite, apart from things like After Effects is you can actually add texture to your surfaces. As well as just adjusting attributes in terms of reflection. And specular highlights and things like that. So, texture will actually add depth to the surface, allowing you to create a kind of rough or bumpy surface. Which looks a little less perfect than this shiny surface we have here.

So, we're in chapter 804 c4d. If you double click the metal material down here in the Material manager, to open it up. And in here, we have a section called Bump. And bump is what will add texture to your surface. Now at the moment, nothing is adding a bump. In order to add a bump, you need either load an image to control the bump or you can create your own texture using what are called shaders. Now you can also load the image here.

And if you loaded the image, it would be called a Bitmap shade...
