If you don't want to use any image texture you can do it with Vertex Paint: Switch to Vertex Paint mode, open the Tool panel, choose a black color, select the Blend > Mix mode, paint around the eyes. The vertex paint only uses the vertices, so its smoothness and precision will depend on your mesh density: As you can see it has created a Vertex Colors group:...

There isn't need for a lot of complex mechanics. In 3D, you often fake it. This is the fastest way I know how to do it: Start by making a cylinder in a new scene. I chose these settings at the start. The main thing is, don't give it a cap fill type. I set mine to None. With your object selected in Object Mode, go to the Modifiers Tab in the Properties ...

I would start with: Surface: Principled BSDF Roughness: 0 Transmission: 1 In the material settings, enable Screen Space Refraction In Eevee: Enable Screen Space Reflections and within that, Enable Refraction The last step is to go back to the material and set the IOR (Index of Refraction) from 1.45 to 1.00. That will make the material completely ...

Recommend use the python console to figure out the path, especially for new and undocumented properties. ObjectData.grids collection holds all the data (fields) you're searching for: >>> C.object.data.grids.items() [(0, bpy.data.volumes['Object_Name']...VolumeGrid), (1, bpy.data.volumes['Object_Name']...VolumeGrid), (2, bpy.data.volumes['...

So my understanding is that you are attempting to make an object orbit around another one. In order to have this happen, the general workflow is to first make an Empty at the pivot point, parent an object to it, and then animate the Empty. Here is how to do it: Select the "center" object (the one the moon would orbit around) by clicking on it. Press ...

For Blender 2.8 and later, on top-right corner you will find a drop-down menu. In there you will find the Viewport Shading options. Select MatCap, activate Shadow, Cavity, Color etc to your liking. Selecting "Single" in "Color" option will let you pick color of the objects in viewport.

in 2.8 the shader editor and the compositor have been split into two different editors. You can use nodes in shading tab or if you go to compositing tab then enable the "Use Nodes" which you can see in the image:

What you could do is create a vertical edge, move it away from its origin, give it a third vertex next to the bottom. Give it a Screw modifier. Apply it. Give it a white material. Select the face loop that was created between bottom and second vertex and give it a second material (black). Give your object a Subdivision Surface modifier. If you have a more ...

I'd say Musgrave texture is a good fit. Proper lighting is also essential. Transmission set to 1 for clear plastic Musgrave texture with Color Ramp to control it Mix RGB node to adjust the colors

Displacement works by using existing geometry on the object. It looks like your building has very little geometry, so only the small amount of existing vertices are moved causing this bending effect. To fix this, just select all of the edges in edit mode by pressing A, and subdivide a few times to create more geometry. As a little note, displacement often ...

Either, when the newly made loop cuts are still selected do: Mesh > Normals > Smoothen Vectors. (this will make texture on the side of the cylinder uniform with the middle part.) Instead you can also apply an Edge Split modifier. Note that if you uncheck Edge Angle in the modifier the distortion reappears. Or, after the loop cut, select all vertices, edges ...

Don't know if this will work, but here's something you can try: first remove the texture, go into object mode, select the jeans, and apply the scale using ctrl+a. Then go into edit mode with your jeans, use "a" to select everything, and hit u -> UV unwrap. I think this will generate a different set of faces. Finally add the texture back on using lily's ...

I'm new at this too, I had the same issue today and I spent 30 minutes figuring out what's going on. I see you're using the Poliigon nodes too. No matter how much I tweaked the actual Displacement node, nothing was displaced. I only saw the sliders under 2 after half an hour, displacement was visible after moving the Displacement Strength to something else ...

A Shader, or BSDF (Bidirectional Scattering Distribution Function), is the math definition for calculating light bounce. Different shaders such as Diffuse and Glossy have different definitions. Materials are datablocks that can be applied to meshes. Think of it as a real material in the world (like wood). Textures are images that mostly add photorealism to ...

Just wanna say that I was able to fix this by myself. Seems like the problem was the refraction depth being set to 0.

You can use the normal output from the "Texture Coordinate" node, then extract the z value. A value of 0 means the normal is orthogonal to the vertical axis, a value of 1 means the face is horizontal, facing up, and a value of -1 means the face is horizontal, facing down. Shade smooth, shade flat, and wireframe in [-1;1] : Shade smooth, shade flat, and ...

Ok, so..... this was very quick I swear I've been searching for an answer for a very long time but like... I switched the transparency and the SSS in the mix shader and it seemed to have worked... I'm pretty sure it was because the SSS was being done in a principled shader so the color on that was overriding the color on the transparency...

By default, render preview uses bilt-in HDR: If you click on use Scene World, Blender will show result similar to render one: So, if you have not proper environment for your model, and there is nothing is reflected in it, it looks flat. So you should set up environment texture: You can use bilt-in HDRI images from Blender folder, or download any (for ...

The most popular format for web atm is GLTF, there is a Blender Addon for that. Ofc. you cannot unwrap some vertices and ignore the rest, if you want separate UV Maps, you need separate objects (not files). Having an atlassed texture is always more perfomant than using multiple ones, not sure if that's an option in this case though. It's probably easiest to ...

After several tests, I found the problem. My file is a Sketchup import and the floor geometry is a bit special. As you can see the mesh has a thickness and a diagonal edge, and this one was like inside the mesh. By moving it up outside (I did it much more to illustrate on the picture), the mesh becomes more valid and the texture is correctly applied.

@d401tq Theory: Since the setup above is based on UV-textures which are projected from the 2-dimensional UV-texture space onto surfaces it's logic that the emission source has to be a face. For the 3-dimensional procedural textures using UV-coordinates like the "Noise" texture in our example here, only the color values at W = 0 are taken into account (...

The easiest way to fix this is to project the texture from a perspective view and then manually adjust the top and bottom edges to remove their curve. To do this press 1, as you are looking down the Y axis, and press the middle mouse button to exit orthographic view. Select the entire surface and press U then V to project from view. Then open the UV Editor ...

This answer is a bit longer to fill in for Blender Manual. No worries, it's not at all technical. Subsurface slider Use this slider to scale Subsurface depth (which is in meters) to useful units (like milimeters). When set to 0, scattering is disabled, 1 means full scattering. Note: Values of around 0.01 are perfectly normal, since you're scaling down ...

Very odd - I downloaded the blend file you included and it all works fine without touching or changing a thing on my end. Red cube with one green face.

Here's a shot at what your tree might look like, as corrected by @Jachym. Introduce the branches one at a time,starting with Diffuse color on its own. Unlike the illustration, forget the AO branch to begin with. Plug the Diffuse map straight into the Base Color. Then check the Normal. If you want to get a better view, you can temporarily unplug the Diffuse ...

It has 'changed the color' ... to Material.04. You could have been linking materials between objects with completely different topologies.. the editor has no way of knowing which materials to assign to which faces. So by default, it will assign the material in transferred-slot-0 to all faces. If you switch the order of the material slots in the first cube, ...

Switch from Eevee to Cycles, make the materials Single User Materials by clicking on the "2" right to the material name in the material tab (either the plane or Suzanne) and uncheck "From Instancer" in the "Texture Coordinate" node of the plane's material node tree (only your instanced object has to have this option checked). If you change the noise texture ...

Texture space For this case I think node material is the easiest way to go. Added a link to bottom that similarly to @IsawU's answer (or at least I think so) writes a value to a UV map AFAIK the generated texture space box around an object maps 0 to 1. ) Object Properties > Viewport Display > Texture Space We can plug this straight into a colorramp ...

I have devised a way to do this kind of hassle free. I include my .

From what I gathered, PhongWarp seems to be either Specular or Metallic, Phong is how strong the PhongWarp is. PhongExponent seems to be roughness, with the non-texture variant being how strong/bright it is. BumpMap is just a normal texture.

Good news. Blender will automatically convert these old nodes for you. Just get an older Blender version and copy/paste them. Download Blender 2.80 and create your material. Make sure the nodes are connected (or it won't work). Copy/paste the material into Blender 2.81+, and the nodes will get automatically converted. Copying materials from Blender 2.8 ...

Because you're not in LookDev or Rendered mode (https://docs.blender.org/manual/en/latest/editors/3dview/controls/shading.html). As a side note, maybe you should start out with a basic tutorial, before you hop into your own projects. It may seem discouraging to actually having to learn something before one can produce results, but so is pretty much every ...

I want to thank you for this question because I learned something in researching the answer. Things have changed. Here's how you can do this easily in 2.8. There is a backface culling option when in Edit Mode from the Viewport Shading Menu pulldown, BUT this is NOT what you want. Leave it alone. :) THere is another backface culling option in the Materials ...

You can either call hide.socket_toggle() operator on all nodes in selection or hide each socket one by one using NodeSocket.hide property.

Blender 2.8 has a built-in tool for making brick walls with a few clicks! Make sure you enable the add-on in the Preferences: Add Mesh:Extra Objects. After that, go to the Add > Mesh > Extras > Wall Factory in the viewport menu. Add a wall and start tweaking. I hope this helps to start!

If those islands are used to map a texture, they will map a solid color (representing one pixel of the texture). Such technique can be used to create pixelation. If they aren't used to map any texture, it doesn't matter. Then I'd reccomend scaling to 0,0001 instead of 0, so they can be scaled back up if needed :).

So I opened your file on my machine and have to inform you that the glitches only occur on your end.

I guess I need to post a question to figure something out. I had been trying to solve this for a week and then figured out problem as soon as I posted. I had to switch to cycles to see the color change. Not sure why? Thank you!

First, you want to go to the texture paint tab. Press new image and name it something so you could recognize it. Go to the shading tab and assign an image texture to base color. In the dropdown, select your created paint image. Now the image is assigned to the object. It should be black by default. Go back to the texture paint tab and you should be able to ...

Looks like problem with normal maps. Try switching to non-color color space in texture node and use bump node instead of connecting normal map directly.

You need to make one and unique material with this kind of node organisation (very simplified). You need to use the logo alpha output into the factor of the Mix Shader in order to make a mask and see the background. Of course the left part can be as complicated as you want, with Bump or Normal nodes plugged into the normal socket of the Diffuse etc:
