In this video, learn how to use Maxwell Studio Material Assistant to create translucent materials for your objects.
- [Instructor] The final material we will look at…is translucent materials, which are typically used for wax,…honey, milk, juices, silicons, urethanes, marble, and so on.…Start by adding a new translucent material.…This material has many parameters,…but a number of them have already been covered…in previous lessons.…When building translucent materials, be sure to use…the triple ace preview scene which is…better optimized for this type of material.…Looking at the presets, there's a good number…of useful materials to choose from.…
These translucent materials are otherwise known as…subservice scattering materials,…and the light is scattered internally in the object.…Scale is a very important factor…when working with translucents,…and the value here is dependent on the size…of the object you are applying it to.…Chances are unless the object is the same size…as the previous scene object, at render time…you will often need to adjust the scale value…due to the material being either too transparent…or too opaque.…Higher values will be more transparent,…

Instructor Leon van den Heever provides an overview of the functions, capabilities, and material system of this powerful, physically-based renderer. He covers how to navigate the user interface and work with objects and the Material Assistant, primarily focusing on Maxwell Studio as the staging interface of the Maxwell suite, and on tackling actual rendering in Maxwell Render. Plus, he goes into the different types of emitters or lights that you can use to light your scenes, how to create and position the camera, and how to set render options.
