Now, we're going to create a rather smooth, flat graphic look to our petals. And we're not going to worry about adding color until we move these elements from cinema 4D in to After Effects. So our material is going to be gray scale. To get started, let's just go down under the Create menu > New Material. Under my Material Options, I really only want to work with two channels.

So I'll actually just double-click on the material so you can see which two channels we'll be working with. I've got my color channel, and my specular channel. Let's de-select Specular.
