Join Donovan Keith for an in-depth discussion in this video Adapting existing textures with the Filter shader, part of Creating Materials in CINEMA 4D.
There're many times when the texture that you want, is only a little bit different…from a texture that you've already got. In those situations, the Filter Shader is…an excellent tool for adapting existing textures to your new needs.…In this scene, I've taken a lot of the textures from our sort of parking…structure scene and adapted them to the appearence of a downtown loft.…I've changed the dimensions to my building slightly and adjusted the lighting, but…even though I've done all of that, it still looks a little bit like a prison cell.…So, let's go ahead and play around with giving our floor a stain, but you'll see…this sometimes in downtown lofts where the management are trying to sell their…concrete slab for a little bit more. So, let's open up this floor texture, and…let's add a little bit of Specular to it. So I'm just going to turn on the Specular…channel, and it's going to give me a little bit of highlight, and looking at…this, we'll see how we're doing. The Specular is doing a little bit, but…
