What You’ll Learn in These Videos:

In Part 1 of this jam packed 2 part Cinema 4D Octane Render tutorial, David Ariew will show you both the old and new models of creating anisotropic shaders, as well as common problems with glass, creating a studio setup, horizontal lens flares, some HDRI hacks, and a wet pavement look!

In Part 2, David will show how to create a dust shader that sits overtop a dark glass material, and cover using multiple dirt nodes and mix textures, as well as a falloff node as a slope to art direct areas that the dust would naturally gather. After that, he’ll show how to generate a grungy gold shader with complex details.
