Join Andy Needham for an in-depth discussion in this video Solution: Lighting and texturing, part of CINEMA 4D R18 Essential Training: Motion Graphics.
- [Instructor] Now, let's talk about the lights…and the textures that are in this scene.…So first, let's have a look at the materials…that we've been using.…We have quite a few…and we're following a very simple color scheme…of red, white, and blue.…And if I open up the lettering,…which you'll see on the word "all"...…I'm just going to double click…to open up the material editor…and we have a simple sort of light blue color,…a lighter version in the luminescence channel.…
And in the reflectence,…I've just removed the default specular…and just added a becman,…and I've just changed the layer for now…to use the BET preset.…And you can see in the assignment tab…that that's actually applied to quite a lot objects.…Now, if we me over to the blue edging here...…It's one of my favorite materials.…This has, again, a color, some diffusion.…I'm using the invert direction,…the new invert direction NR18.…
And now, if we look in the luminescence,…that's just adding a bit of brightness.…The transparency is giving us this…kind of plexi glass, tinted glass look…
