Blender 3D Materials Tutorials
We hope that you will enjoy our Blender 3D Materials tutorials. Feel free to contact us if you would like to be a tutorial hero and contribute your own Blender 3D Materials tutorial to our site. Thank you !
The first in a series of tutorials to help you learn now to use blender, a free 3D modeling program. You can visit nystic.com for more tutorials.
Organic Materials in Luxrender by Example
Create a complex material in Luxrender that is a combination of several simpler ones plus learn about the Luxrender camera and re-lighting during render.
Rendering a Mantis in Blender Cycles
Learn how to set up complex materials in Blender Cycles plus tips and tricks on lighting and the Cycles camera.
Quick Introduction to Materials in Blender
We’ll continue the quick Blender introduction series with the creating and applying of the materials. Materials are some shaders that gives the colour, shininess, etc. of your object.
Tip: Floating Geometry with Normal Mapping
In this quick Blender 2.5 video tip I show you how to avoid complex topology on hard-surface objects to be normal mapped by using floating geometry. This can save a lot of time during the modeling process and yet still yields perfect normal maps.
Texture Painting in GLSL Shading Mode – Addendum
In this quick tip, I discuss the problems I had with the bump mapping in the previous tutorial, and we go back and start from scratch on how to paint on Bump maps in GLSL shading mode, and also setting up the tools as needed.
Texture Painting in GLSL Shading Mode
In this tutorial, I show you a pre-created mesh with some sculpting applied, and we quickly go over the seams and UV coordinates. Then we bake out a tangent normal map, and begin painting a texture in Texture Paint mode.
The Guide to Blender 2.5 Materials
This video guide tells you all you need to know about the basic of Blender 2.5 Materials. Materials and textures are one of the most important tools in any 3D package. A superb mesh object will still look like a grey plastic toy without good textures. Yet materials and textures can be one of the most challenging aspects of the design process. Blender, like many other comprehensive 3D suites, has a vast array of tools that can help you create virtually any material either in reality or beyond. However, to the Blender beginner it can appear overwhelming. This documentation is designed to take you rapidly from no, or little knowledge, to the point where you can confidently create materials to your needs.

Blender Tutorial Using Dupliverts
A series of tutorials to help you learn now to use blender, a free 3D modeling program.
Blender Tutorial - Reference Plane
In this tutorial you will learn how to setup image-planes in your viewport that can be viewed in realtime, allowing you to load for example a hammer image and use it has reference when modeling a hammer.
Tip: Texturing the Alien Continued
On this tip I am showing how the textures could be taken a bit further. This is a time lapse with narration of furthering the detail of the texture and normal maps.
Tip: Creating Stable Noise Textures for Animation
In this quick tip, we’ll take a look at how to easily create a procedural noise texture that’s stable during animation, unlike the default “Noise” procedural texture that’s available in Blender.
Creating transparent textures for game engine use and rendering.
Creating normal maps in blender part 2
This tutorial is going to tell you the second method of creating a normal map in blender. You need to have done the normal maps part one tutorial before starting this one.
