    Edit to my last comment. I found a different tutorial for imperfections which works better with me. Incl. “range-nodes”. – https://greyscalegorilla.com/surface-imperfections-training/

    This tutorial is really difficult to follow with all the jumps, quick – impossible to follow – short-cut inserts, zoom-ins and -outs. And it seems not to be up-to-date with c4d 2023 where I do not find a “range node” for example.

    Does this work with Physical Renderer?

      Yes, our Surface Imperfection packs do work with the Physcial renderer in C4D.

        Where do i put these in the Reflectance-Channel in physical render?

    How can we add Surface Imperfections with Octane?

        Hi Deirdra,

        Thank you for your replay, but my question was how to create surface imperfections using octane? I would like to reproduce the – perfections overrated- tutorial using octane instead arnold or redshift. Do you know?

        • Nick CampbellMarch 16, 2021 at 8:13 am

          Hi Pedro. The process is very similar in Octane. However, I hope to record a video soon with chad on how to use these maps in Octane. Cheers.
