Floating on the Ocean with Cinema 4D
This INCREDIBLY detailed tutorial will walk you through the basics of creating an advanced ocean shader from scratch in Cinema 4D. You’ll learn about many of the texture channels, stacking effect shaders, using layers, fresnel, etc… From there, you’ll see how to get realistic rolling waves that you can actually attach objects to so they float and bob up and down on the water.
This tutorial is a response to tons of e-mails we have been getting since Scenery was released. If you haven’t checked out Scenery yet, you can find it here:
