In this video, learn the different methods available to you to apply materials you've created to your objects.
- [Instructor] Now that you know…how to create new materials with a material assistant,…we'll next look at how to apply materials…to our bowling pin object.…Start by adding an opaque material.…We want the pins be white,…so let's check the color.…Make sure HSV is selected…and note how the value is set to 220.…You will recall in the fundamentals lesson…that if the values are too high…the light will keep bouncing around in your scene…with very little loss in energy,…which in turn will produce noisier renders…and also create a washed out look…giving unrealistic contrast to objects within your scene.…
You obviously don't want that…so don't push this value higher…than say 230 for a realistic result.…Let's drop the roughness down to 10…to get a nice gloss on our material.…To apply this material to the pin one object,…make sure the object is selected,…make sure the material is selected,…and as you've already learned…you can use either the context menu to apply to selection,…or from the material editor panel,…use the apply current material to selection icon.…

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.
