Thanks for sharing and detailed production breakdown
i thought there wouldnt be anything better than akeytsu for creating easy animations. im happy if i am proven wrong.
Keith, I just wanted to stop by and say: Thank you.
Danilo Nunes Paulo has shared a free collection of custom shaders for Marmoset Toolbag 3. The set will help you bring more life to your Marmoset scenes and make your artworks attractive.
Animated UV Coordinates (or Panner)
Simple moving UV Coordinates. (same as the Panner node in Unreal Engine 4)
Real Time Checkbox let you see the movement in…well, Real Time!
If unchecked, the animation will follow the timeline time.
Awesome if you want a simple moving texture. Also for smoke trails!
Animated UV Coordinates for Displacement + Additional Height Map Blend
Same as above, but this is if you want to move it with Displacement Maps. Awesome for water/lava/fluids!
Also I added an Additional height map if you want to blend it the original one.
Example: (Texture from: https://share.allegorithmic.com/libraries/2906)
Simple flipbook/texture sheet animation. Awesome for fire/explosions/candles/smokes!
Custom Fresnel effect. Can be used on Emissive or in Transparency.
