Description

In this series of Vue tutorials, we'll learn the fundamentals of how to create beautiful materials in Vue by breaking down the basic and advance material editor. We'll cover how to create the overall look of our materials by exploring the color and alpha panel. After that we'll move into working with bumps and displacements to add depth to our materials. Now once that we've become more comfortable with creating materials, we'll dive into working with transparencies, reflection, translucency, and effects. Finally we'll learn how to utilize the different types of materials like mixed, volumetric, ecosystem, and layered materials. Software required: Vue 10 xStream.

Introduction and Project Overview
Hi, I'm Josh with Digital-Tutors. In this series of tutorials, we'll discuss the fundamentals of creating awesome looking materials in Vue. We'll start off by learning how to create basic materials using the Basic Material Editor. Now, once we know the basics, we'll move forward by breaking down the different panels of the Advanced Material Editor. There, we'll cover how to create the overall look of our materials by exploring the Color and Alpha Panel. After that, we'll move into working with bumps and displacements to add depth to our materials. Now, once we become more comfortable with creating materials, we'll dive into working with transparencies, reflections, translucency and even effects. Finally, we'll learn how to utilize the different types of materials, like mixed, volumetric and ecosystem and even layered materials. Now, by the end of this course, you'll have a very solid understanding of how to create beautiful materials to use on your very own Vue projects. So with that said, we'll get started.
