Join Donovan Keith for an in-depth discussion in this video Applying materials to NURBS caps and polygon selections, part of Creating Materials in CINEMA 4D.
In this video we will create and apply materials to different parts of our object…using Polygon Selection tags. We'll also talk about the special case of…applying materials to the caps and rounding of an extruded, lofted or laved object.…As we've learned in earlier videos to apply a material to an object all you have…to do is drag and drop. Let's put down a blue base coat on both…our text and our oil tank. Click and drag the blue material from the…materials manager onto the text object and click and drag from the materials manager…onto the oil tank object. Now, if we want to restrict our material…to a portion of our oil tank, an easy way to do that is by selecting its polygons.…
If I select my oil tank, and go into Polygon mode, I'll find out that I…actually can't select these polygons. So, in order to access them I need to make…my object editable, which I can do by pressing this button right here, or…hitting the C key on my keyboard. Please note that once you make your object…editable you won't be able to go back in and adjust it's parameters like radius.…
