More to Learn on creating a Damage Shader and Worn out Materials in Cinema 4D
Previously, we had the opportunity to learn from Dan Conrad who showed how to create a rusted and worn out truck in Cinema 4D. The tutorial largely covered quite a bit of shader work, and will provide some practical foundation for the techniques Ben is showing in his tutorial.
