Join Chad Perkins for an in-depth discussion in this video Obscuring objects with materials, part of Element 3D Essential Training (2013).
Most of the time of course we use materials and textures to clothe objects and…make them look beautiful or more realistic or whatever.…But sometimes, sometimes they are used for very useful purposes that you might…not think materials would be used for.…Say for example, we have this thing where we have asteroids circling around…an image of a planet.…We actually are going to use materials to make this happen.…Not that probably doesn't seem that cool until we actually go in and look at…this project and see what's happening and see the challenges that we face and…how these materials are going to help us solve them.…
It's a really interesting lesson in more intermediate and advanced materials.…I am going to go over to Obscuration START the composition here.…I want to just show you the problem, the dilemma that we face.…Before we do that we need to know about our project here.…You realize it is really not the most interesting thing.…We need to understand what's going on here so we realize the challenge that we are facing.…
