In Depth Element Overview

I just updated our Element Help page to include 2 new tutorials to talk about some of the less flashy features of Element 3D. These should really help you get going with the plug-in and hopefully show you some tricks you may not know about. I probably should have had this done when we released the product but here they are now! More tutorials in the works soon.

Beyond the Basics:
Everything you need to know to get started!

  • Customizing UI
  • Adding textures
  • Basic texture mapping options
  • Using animated custom texture maps
  • Material settings overview
  • Force Opacity
  • Using multiple Groups
  • Lighting & Ambient Occlusion

 

Importing Objects & Building Materials:
C4D tips, OBJ exporting and more!

  • Exporting 3D objects for Element 3D
  • Exporting from Blender & 3D Max (works with other software too)
  • Tips for working with C4D files in Element
  • Exporting multiple materials to view in Element
  • Rebuilding materials with texture images
  • Illumination maps and Occlusion maps
  • Advanced Shader design and adjustments
