So I am just going to say I suck at making materials and would like to improve. I watch all these videos or look at all these screenshots and I am not entirely lost, but every time I learn something I only realize how much more I do not understand. I just wonder how they toss out these terms so causally and know what comes next. Here is me being sarcastic…
We are just going to plug this in here, multiply it by this, mask out this channel and add it back in then divide it by this scalar and quantum theory this lerp into a fade then bitmap this to a vector of that so I can vertice paint it to tin buck too for a PBR system. Seriously do I to be a math genius to get all this or something, where do people learn all of this and understand it.
What I am really looking for is a industry standard dictionary with all the verb-age and explanation of said. It wouldn’t hurt either if it had a bunch of kind of common tips and tricks of the trade and examples of these verb-ages in use. I look at the materials options in the editor and just kind of feel like a deer in the headlights.
Does anyone else out there understand me?
