Join Chad Perkins for an in-depth discussion in this video Animating object materials, part of Element 3D Essential Training (2013).
In this movie, we are going to take a closer look at animating materials and we are going…to learn a few little tricks along the way.…We are going to be looking at this example here. …(video playing)…A little sci-fi hallway, and you'll notice that these materials here, that these lights…flicker on and off.…This is actually just a change in materials.…So, this is a very different example than what we've seen, this is not just a bunch…of spheres or cubes changing materials.…This is a more practical example of this.…
So, let's go to the Animating Materials START composition, where we have our little hallway,…and we are backing out.…We just have this one object.…So, let's go ahead and select the Element layer, click Scene Setup, and jump in and take a look here.…We have this sci-fi hallway, there we go, that looks like there.…We have the sci-fi hallway and it's just one object.…So, what we want to do is create another sci-fi hallway with a different- colored light panel here.…This is just an illuminated texture on this little part right here.…
