Maxon Cinema 4D and Arnold Render: How to Add Dust and Paint Specks with The Utility Shader
Sam Tato explains how to add dust and paint specks inside of Arnold, using C4DtoA. “This technique uses the Utility Shader to select upward facing geometry which can be used as a matte to add dust and paint splatter. More to come in this series on how to add realism in Cinema 4D with modeling, texturing, and some quick techniques inside C4DtoA.”
Download C4DtoA from Solid Angle. They have updated the plug-in to work with R20.
