  2. How to Create an Iridescent Material in Cinema 4D 3 Comments

    In this tutorial I’m going to show you how to create an iridescent texture in Cinema 4D.  I’ll start by building up a scene to apply materials to.  I’ll then go over the Spectral Shader that applies prismatic color reflexes, or pearl like effects to your specular channel.  We’ll cover all the options inside the Spectral Shader as well as how lights and camera view can affect how the effect is applied to your object.  Finally I’ll give you some hints as to how you can create a soapy bubble type of effect using the Spectral Shader.  Have fun and experiment!

    If you have any questions be sure to post it in the comments section and if you create any cool iridescent textures, be sure to share it with me!  Thanks for watching!

  3. No Keyframes were Harmed in the Making of this Tutorial 9 Comments

    This video is going teach you how to save time and energy by animating with Signal instead of traditional keyframes. I can’t tell you how many product fly-on’s I’ve done over my career. Everything from bottles of vitamins to various beers. That being said, phones seem to pop up the most and every time I animate something like this I try to do it faster than I did the last one. No one wants to reinvent the wheel every time one of these lands on your desk.

    Signal is a tool that has made doing product fly-on’s actually fun again.

    I can animate the entire setup procedurally and save the scene/rig for the next time. Client changes to timing and animation are no problem because instead of wrangling tons of key frames, I’m only having to adjust a few parameters in Signal.

    Let’s Do This!
