OSL Window shader

OSL Window shader

I’m exploring the possibilities of OSL shaders with Arnold Renderer.

These are shaders often written as small helpers across different platforms. It works with Vray, Arnold Renderer, Render Man, Octane and Blender.

In this case you can create a WindowBox, Interior Mapping or Parallax Mapping really fast. You just follow the instructions to create a room with 5 sides a middle ground and front (curtain), and the OSL file it self is added to your c4dtoa shader folder.

C4dtoa hair fix

 

I came over a problem with the Arnold Hair. You can see in the picture that the hair doesn't pick up the color from the texture, and as usual it's an easy fix.

You add an Arnold Tag, and tick the Export UVs. In the hair material you add your texture to the standard hair shader.

Good luck!

In this follow up tutorial on how to create Object ID for your fabrics, I only use Photoshop to create these maps. This really depends on your source texture and other element if it's easy or hard. Sometimes you need to do a lot of small tweaking to make it work, and here I show you the main principles.

If you haven't seen Fabulous Fabrics I recommend you do that :)

You find the free texture pack here:

Fabulous Fabric with Object ID maps

 

Poliigon has started creating fabric textures with Object ID maps. They add a more convincing look on your fabric, and they are really easy to create your self. In Arnold render you can connect these to the coat layer in standard surface and I really like the result that gives.

I show how I used it to create a wool material for a Hiroshima Chair by Naoto Fukasawa.

If you have a material suggestion, write it in the comments :)

Here is the free Fleece texture: https://www.poliigon.com/texture/2332

Arnold Ice Material Tutorial - Using Cinema 4d, Arnold Render, B2M & Photoshop - Texture02

 

In this tutorial I show how to create an ice material for Arnold Render. In photoshop I make the material base based on a picture. It's made square and seamless for ease of use. Then processed in Bitmap2Material to create different texture maps. Then mixed together in Arnold Render.

This is a little more advanced then the first material tutorial, and hope you like it.
