Join George Maestri for an in-depth discussion in this video Create bumps and deplacemenets, part of Blender Essential Training.
- [Instructor] Another way to modify materials…is to you add bump and displacement mapping.…Let's take a look at that.…I've got this simple scene here,…and I'm going to go ahead and render it.…As you can see, we have a table with a bowl,…and some oranges, although the oranges…look a little bit more like balls, because,…well, they don't have as much texture as they need…to give that surface, that kind of…bumpy surface of the orange.…
Let's go ahead and correct that by adding in some bumps.…I'm going to go ahead and select one of the oranges,…and as you can see in the materials tab,…we have a material named orange, and it is a mixed shader.…If you look at it here, in the node editor,…you see that we have a diffuse, and a glossy,…both approximately the same color,…leading into a mix shader, and that creates the surface.…
We want to add and some bumps to that surface,…to give it a little bit more realism.…We can do that in one of two places.…The easiest way is to just go here,…into displacement, and click on it.…You can see that we can add in all sorts…
