Join Chad Perkins for an in-depth discussion in this video Applying materials, part of Element 3D Essential Training (2013).
In this tour, we're going to look at how to clothe our 3D objects in different…materials. Let's go ahead and go and create a new comp with this HDV/HDTV…720 29.97 preset. Click OK, right-click, make a New > Solid comp size, click OK,…and add Element to that.…We can go ahead and click on Scene Setup button, and we want to go over here to…the Model Browser, and we actually want to click on Primitives.…There's 54 basic shapes that come with Element, and these are extremely helpful;…everything from basic shapes, like spheres, and boxes, and blobs, to stuff like an…empty room, which you can clothe with your own textures, and make really cool.…
So a lot of really great stuff here; water drops.…And what I want to do is actually click on this blob object; click on blob, and…now we have this blob in our scene.…None of these Primitives here, or the Icons for that matter, have any textures…applied to them, so they're almost just like naked 3D objects, and again, we need…to clothe them with materials. You could see over here in our scene, we have our…
