Learn to layer Bifrost attribute data.
- [Voiceover] Forticity is of course,…just one of the channels we can utilize…to mask the foam from the water.…Let's jump back into the Hypershade,…and we can stack a bunch of these on top of one another.…Now there are many ways…that we could add this data together.…We could use Math Nodes and so on.…I'm choosing to use a layered shader,…because I'm more familiar with that.…And that way I think I can control…the compositing a little bit better.…So I can easily ensure that the sum of all the channels,…never exceeds a white color of one.…
Create a New Layered Shader.…That'll be in the Maya section…under Surface, Layered Shader.…And here's a new layered shader, and a new shading group.…We won't be using that shading group,…so in fact, we can just actually delete that.…Press the Delete key.…Here's layeredShader2.…Let's immediately rename that.…I'm going to add Bifrost Combiner,…to the beginning of the Layered Shader Node Name,…and press Enter.…
Down here in Compositing Flag, as before,…we want it to be Layer Texture,…and that's going to superimpose the layers,…
