How to Create a Gel Texture in Cinema 4D

In this tutorial I’m going to break down how you can create a gel texture in Cinema 4D and apply it to a gummy bear model! First, I’ll go over how to set up your material color using Fresnels and go over the crucial options in the Transparency channel that allow for a nice gel look. Finally, I’ll cover how to add some nice organic imperfections in the texture by utilizing noise in both the Diffusion and Bump channels.

And as always, if you have any questions, be sure to post it in the comments section and if you create anything cool using this technique, be sure to share it with me! Thanks for watching!
