In this video, learn how to take a simple character and add complex textures that bring it to life.
- [Lecturer] In addition to simple colors, … we can also add texture to our materials. … So let's take a look at this Café Racer that we have … so I'm going to select the helmet … and if we go over to the Properties panel, … make sure we're in the Materials tab. … You'll see we have a material called Racer. … Now we want to add a color texture … or Bitmap instead of just that solid color. … Now we can do this by clicking on this Use Nodes tab. … Now when I do that, … everything in the material changes and it kind of changes … the nature of this material. … And notice how we have a whole lot more settings, … but we still have some of the basics such as Specularity … and Roughness and Metalness and so on. … Now each one of these has a little dot on the side … and if I click on that dot I can actually … add in what's called a Node. … And that's why we clicked on Use Nodes up here. … So, when I add in a Node I can add in different types … of textures. … The one I'm looking for is an Image Texture …
