MATERIAL OPTIONS By Emerson Velazquez
Sometimes the best way to learn something is to deconstruct a completed project.  In this series of presets, a team of DMN readers got together to make some CINEMA4D textures.  While the materials are mostly based on simple parameters, it may help you to understand how a texture is made.  This week I've put together a tutorial on creating a simple texture that I've added to Emerson's BEACH materials.  Download the materials here, then check out the tutorial to make your own.

There are so many different elements to a single material, and within each of those material parameters, there are several more options that create an almost infinite possibility for creating textures for your 3D object.

In the MATERIAL OPTIONS SERIES, we'll create sets that you can download for free, disassemble and configure for yourself.    By downloading the preset, you'll get all of the textures together.  At a later point in time, we'll make catalogues of textures available to download for free.  

Does it seem easy?  Let's see what you've got.  Send submissions for publication to komaruyama at
