Nailing Down Dispersion Effects With Redshift C4D

TFMStyle shows how to get great-looking dispersion effects in crystals using Redshift.

TFMStyle (the French Monkey) offers insights into creating that coveted dispersion effect using Cinema 4D and Redshift. The tutorial covers creating realistic crystals (using QuartzFM, of course) and shows some techniques and strategies for creating shaders and the settings involved – like casting photon caustics and dispersion.
