Join Aaron F. Ross for an in-depth discussion in this video Painting on objects, part of Creating Natural Environments in Maya.
Before we can start painting onto an object, we need to do a little bit of set up first.…Primarily, we need to create a new shader and then paint into one of the…attributes of that shader.…The first step then would be to select the object and assign a new material.…So I can just right-click and choose Assign New Material, and I get a pop-up…window showing all the different types of shader material nodes available.…And I want to choose Lambert, because Lambert doesn't have any highlights.…What I'm doing now is I am creating a temporary material to hold my 3D paint…texture, and then later once that textures has been saved, optionally I can go…back and build another shader network around it. But for now I just want to…start with a simple Lambert shader, because it won't have any highlights, and…that way I won't be distracted by them, and I'll be able to see the effects of…the Paint tool more effectively.…
So I will click Lambert. I have got a new lambert material, and I'll just go…ahead and rename that right away and I will call it terrain_3d_Paint_lambert.…
