Utilizing Shading Networks in 3ds Max

Visit Tutorial Page ( Report)
In this collection of 3ds Max tutorials, we will explore the process of creating and using shading networks within 3ds Max. Understanding how to create and modify shading networks is an important skill - one that is essential for recreating the various materials and the different types of surfaces found in the real world. This tutorial will explore topics such as using maps to control transparency, bump, and displacement effects, understanding mapping coordinates to control texture placement, applying textures to particles, combining and layering details from multiple textures, and many other topics that are designed to help you become a stronger, more efficient 3ds Max artist. Software required: 3ds Max 2012.
