  2. How to Apply Grungy Materials Using Sketch & Toon’s Spot Shader Leave a Comment


    In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to apply grungy materials onto your 3D models in Cinema 4D.  Sketch and Toon is such a deep module inside C4D and to go over this technique I’ll be introducing you to the S&T Spot Shader.  It works a bit like the Cel Shader, so if you’re not familiar with the Cel Shader check out my tutorial covering it.  Spot Shader is mainly used for creating halftone like effects onto your image, driven by the diffuse shading on your 3D objects but it’s very versatile as you’ll see in this tutorial.  If you have any questions, be sure to hit me in the comments below and I hope you enjoy!

    In this AskGSG user Ruedifly brought this inspired animation to my attention from Polynoid. Chris focuses on the idea of an object getting wrapped up and tangled in a stretchy piece of cloth and tearing it’s way free using cloth dynamics in C4D.

    It’s time for NAB again. But if you can’t make it to Las Vegas, don’t worry. Maxon will be streaming ALL the presentations at C4DLive. Stop by the page today to check the schedule and see all the great presenters this year.

    There are three, thats right THREE presentations from GSG this year!

    First, be sure to stop by Monday at 11:30 PST to see my presentation about how to choose the right lighting for your next Cinema 4D project. I will be going through tons of examples and scene files from my hard drive. Everything from Cartoon Looks to GI and BRDF.

    Then, on Wednesday, Chris and I will be doing AskGSG LIVE from the NAB floor at 11:30 PST. This is where we need your help. If you have a question you wan’t answered live at NAB, send a question to @GSG3D and include the hashtag, #ASKGSG. We could pick your question to answer live from the show floor. Should be fun!

    Finally, GSG at NAB continues on Thursday at 11:30 PST with an hour from Chris all about Softbody Dynamics. Chris has been learning a TON about this powerful feature and is excited to show you everything he has been learning. If you have seen Chris’ presentations in the past, you know that they are PACKED full of great tips and tricks.

    Hope to see you on the stream!
