Join Thanassis Pozantzis for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating "paintable" materials, part of Up and Running with Bodypaint in CINEMA 4D.
- Let's forget wizards and magic and witchcraft…and all that wizardry right now,…and see exactly what a paintable material is.…In order to do that, we will go again…to the "Bodypaint 3D" Paint layout.…What I would like to do is try an experiment.…I will go to the Materials,…and I will double-click down here.…So I've created a material.…
It works exactly like a standard material.…If I double-click here, I create a material,…and if I double-click on the material, I set the properties.…So let me get rid of both of these,…and whether I create the material here…or create it here, it's exactly the same thing,…but with a different interface.…We'll talk about this later.…So, double-click,…call this "mookie body."…And I'm going to get my paintbrush and try to paint.…
Of course, I cannot paint, that's why I see the arrow,…with the little circle in there, the "No" sign.…Why is that?…Well, number one, I need to apply…my material to one of my objects.…I'm going to apply it to the body,…and then I'm going to get my paintbrush…and I'm going to get a color, and I'm going to…
