How to Get Vertex Maps Into Octane in Cinema 4D

SilverwingVFX covers a no-fuss way to bring Vertex Maps into Octane from Cinema 4D.

Check out this new quick tip from SilverwingfVFX (Raphael Rau) that covers working with Vertex Maps and how to bring them into Octane Render.

The tutorial shows a simple way to use Vertex Maps in Octane and how to avoid some of the most common problems.

Vertex Maps are a fantastic way to create more complex materials -For instance, making worn edges on objects procedurally using nodes.

A Beginner’s Guide to Vertex Maps in C4D.

A while back, Severo Ojea (Workbench tv) showed how you could achieve sophisticated effects by working with VertexMaps, in this beginner’s guide.

“Generally, you’re limited to a simple falloff when it comes to controlling the parts of objects that effectors, uh, effect,” Ojea says. “But by adding a quick map, we can add complex effects to objects and their shaders.”
