Tutorial 117: The Power of Vertex Maps

Severo Ojea | Mar 30, 2018

This week we take a look at a really useful technique in Cinema 4D—controlling effectors and shaders with vertex maps. Generally, you're limited to a simple falloff when it comes to controlling the parts of objects that effectors, uh, affect. But by adding a quick vertex map, we can add complex effects to objects and their shaders.

The C4D files for this project are available through our Gumroad store. If you're a patron, there's a link there on Patreon for you to get it.
