What are materials and textures and why use them
How to access the Vray Material Editor and navigate its interface
How to create a basic Vray material and assign it to your objects
How to adjust the material parameters, such as diffuse color, reflection, refraction, glossiness, and fresnel
How to create different types of materials using presets or custom settings, such as metal, glass, wood, and fabric
How to apply textures to your materials using bitmap files or procedural maps
How to adjust the texture parameters, such as UV mapping, tiling, offset, rotation, and blending modes
How to use advanced texture maps, such as bump maps, displacement maps, and normal maps, to add more detail and realism to your materials
By the end of this lesson, you will have a good understanding of materials and textures in Vray Next and be able to create realistic and varied materials for your 3D objects. You will also be ready to move on to the next lesson, where you will learn about cameras and effects in Vray Next.
