How to Animate Shine on Anisotropic Materials in Octane and C4D

SilverwingVFX shows how to make those glimmering logos using Anisotropic Materials in Octane in Maxon Cinema 4D.

SilverwingfVFX (Raphael Rau) jumps around between applications with his tutorial, and this new one shows how to create those slick animated icons you see on his YouTube videos. Rau covers how to build and animate the shine on Anisotropic Materials using Octane Render and Cinema 4D.

In a previous tutorial that’s topic-adjacent, SilverwingfVFX had a dive into BSDF or Bidirectional scattering distribution functions, what they are, and how they work in 3D rendering. Visit that tutorial here.
