Join Chad Perkins for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the environment, part of Element 3D Essential Training (2013).
The last important component of Element that we're going to look at in this…chapter is the environment.…So, let's go ahead and click the Scene Setup button here in Element to open…the scene setup; the scene interface here.…And we'll go to Primitives, and I'd like you to scroll down here, and we want to…click on the round_box.…And again, when you bring in these icons, or primitives, they don't have any…textures applied to them; we can see a faint reflection, but let's go ahead and…apply a reflective material here.…Let's go to the Presets, and then grab this Chrome, which is one the most…reflective presets out there.…
Drag and drop this onto our round_box to apply that material.…And as we click and drag around here, we can see this cool reflective texture.…What it is actually doing is reflecting the environment.…So, that's how we create reflections in Element.…Now, if we click the Environment button, we actually see the environment in the…back, and basically it's a map.…It's a big image that's being projected onto this cube; our object here.…
