Creating Basic Materials
So, in this module, we are going to create the basic materials for our scene, so let's take a look at what we are about to create. So, these are the materials that we are going to cover in this module, and we are going to create, in this particular order. First we are going to develop the glass material, then the wall, then a basic chrome material, rubber, opaque white, shiny white, shiny gray, metal, and finally leather. So, these are all basic materials with a very quick creation process, and we're going to go ahead and tackle that next.
