    1. Oh you want the lighting from my render? I do everything in Octane which I guess not everyone has so I dont usualy supply that, but you can get all the final project files on my Patreon page if you need them, otherwise you could give the lighting a crack yourself, would love to see what you come up with. Thanks for watching!

  1. Hi Dave! Thanks for your tutorials, they’re helping me a lot trying to figure out this new (to me) software. BTW I have probably a silly question: when you duplicate the .null to add the second color, how does it come automatically alternating? Thanks again! 🙂

    1. Cheers Ilaria, the cloner will automatically distribute what ever is inside it like that. If you duplicate again you’ll get the same one every 3 copies. BTW If you didn’t already know about it we now have a Facebook Group if you’d like to get involved http://www.facebook.com/groups/CGShortcuts. Thanks for watching!

    1. Cheers Winston! Glad you liked it.

  2. Anyone know how I could make the the finished pin wheel smaller? Maybe its really easy and I’m just slow but I cant figure it out.
