  1. Variance Techniques in Arnold for Cinema 4D 26 Comments

    Learn useful variance techniques using Arnold for Cinema 4D in this Cinema 4D Tutorial.

    About This Video:
    In this video, Chad Ashley from demonstrates several variance techniques using the Arnold Renderer for Cinema 4D. Variance is the key to realism. In nature, there is no such thing as perfect duplicates. In fact, you want to add as much variance across your scene as possible. At the same time, you don’t want hundreds of unique copies of your shaders/materials. This is exactly why so many renderers have these sorts of variance features.  You want one shader that can drive many objects in a scene and still have varying attributes.
