In this video, learn how to take a simple character and add colors that bring it to life.
- [Instructor] Now lets add some color to our scene. … Color in Maya is added using what are called materials. … Now materials can be found under the rendering menu. … So I'm going to use this pull down menu here … to go to rendering and then under lighting/shading, … you'll see we have a materials tab here. … Now under this we can assign a new material, … assign a favorite material, … as well as an existing material. … Now notice we have a couple here … called business, crusader, and racer, … which we'll use in a little bit. … Now we can also apply materials through the rendering shelf. … If I click here you'll see we have … all of these little spheres here, … these are called shader balls and they're different types … of shading algorithms called shaders. … So for example this one here with the long highlight … is called Anisotropic, Blinn has a normal highlight, … Lambert has no highlight it's kind of a matte surface, … Phong is a little bit shinier and Phong E … is a little bit different from that, …
