hello Alexander, I really loved your these draw works. I loved cathedrals too.I started 3ds Max new. And I really really want to meet you, if you wanna to do. By the way, my name is Duacan, from Turkey. also Im working for learning and speaking German. Cause Deutschland is the my first country for living. Whatever, take care yourself, Tschüss. insta: 06optimusprime06
nice blog but here is the thing, what is wrong with overlaping uv's and mirroring them, what are the cons of overlapping them and why is this method better in the case of uv? thanks
Thank you @Fcardoso The volumetric light is available in the latest 2018.3 beta. In the visual environment setting, there is a new option to select Volumetric light fog. The screen I shared is from 2018.2 during that time I was using a script to enable it :)
Sketchfab revealed another cool ability for 3D artists. Their online renderer now supports “Clear Coat” materials!
Clear coat derives its name from the automobile industry and is a term used to describe the glossy transparent coating that is sprayed on top of the underlying colored base coat giving vehicles that unique “car paint” look and providing a durable abrasion resistant surface against the outside world.
In 3D rendering terms, our new clear coat option provides an opportunity to add an additional layer to your materials with tint, thickness, roughness, and normals all while maintaining the same parameters for the material layer below giving you an incredible amount of control over the final result.
As the video shows, the effect, while typically used for automotive paint it’s not just limited to vehicles and can be used for any material where dual layers are helpful. Another good example is adding varnish to wood materials or syrup or sugar like materials where the thickness control can be used to simulate richness.
Another Clear Coat example:
We can’t wait to see what you create. If you update existing models or share new ones using our clear coat feature, be sure to use the “clearcoat” tag. We’ll be keeping our eyes open for models that show off the feature’s full potential.
