All Materials

We’ll start off by covering each of the Material Types in Octane including the Diffuse, Glossy, Specular, Metallic, Universal, Toon, Mix, Blend and Portal Materials.

All Nodes

We’ll then cover every node available within Octane to create your shaders and materials. We’ll see examples of what each node does and how to use them in your workflow.

Material Projects

We’ll build several materials together step by step and we’ll share loads of tips on how to get great looking shaders and physically accurate results. All Project Files are included and new videos are being added all the time.

Bonus Material Library

The course includes a plug-and-play Octane Materials library with over 50 prebuilt materials you can use in your own projects or as a starting point for your bespoke materials. We’re also adding new materials all the time!

Ever Growing Content
& Updates

This course is designed to be the definitive materials resource for all octane artists, so as with all courses in our pro series, this training will be updated with every new release of the octane plugin*, so this will be the only course you’ll ever need on the subject.

We’ll also continue adding content regularly, so you enrol once and the tutorials and resources keep on coming!

*Updates will continue for at least a period of 1 year from launch (October 2019)

Request a Material

If there’s a particular look you’re trying to create, students can request a material and we’ll try to get a tutorial and shader up for you as soon as we can! We’ve got your back;)

Material Projects

Here’s some of the materials we’ll be making together…

JADE We’ll look at creating
sub surface scattering effects
and translucency by building
a realistic Jade material.
SPECKLED We get asked about this one
all the time but the modern
looking speckled effect is
actually easy to do.
JELLY One of those materials
we’re often asked about,
getting jelly looking right
isn't easy but we’ll walk
you through the steps.
DIAMOND Getting the look of Diamond
can be tricky, but we’ll look
at the dispersion settings
and the correct specular
settings to get diamonds
that glisten.
GOLD We guide you through
creating physically accurate
gold based on real world
properties and give you
a library of prebuilt metals
with all correct values.
ICE Creating realistic ice is
easy when you know how
STICKERS
& DECALS
This and more coming soon...
WAX This and more coming soon...

Before you go…
This course is designed to be the definitive resource for creating professional looking materials in Cinema 4D with Octane. We cover every aspect of the software that is to do with Material creation. By the end of this course you'll be able to create amazing looking shaders and take your renders to the next level.
Lifetime access to the course videos (6 hours over 70 videos and growing), 6 x C4D Project Files, 1 x Octane Material Library (currently over 50 materials), Exclusive support, continuous updates and new content added regularly.
You need Maxon Cinema 4D (many of the techniques are achievable in older versions but Version 20 and above is recommended). You also need the OctaneRender Plugin for Cinema 4D (Version 2018 and above is recommended but the concepts in this course apply to all versions).
You need the OctaneRender Plugin for Cinema 4D from the Otoy website. It's available to rent or buy and is quite affordable. The concepts in this course apply to all versions but Version 2018 and above is recommended.
A basic level of Cinema 4D and Octane Render should be fine for this course.
The promo video was created with materials from the course to demonstrate what is possible when you have a good understanding of material creation. We do not cover creating the promo video itself but the concepts you need to understand to create professional looking materials. This is not an animation course but you can check out our other courses and free tutorials to learn more about mograph animation.
