Cycles materials nodes

Hello guys,

Here is my question: Do you know any books or links or whatever that explain materials different nodes in cycles?

Thanks.

The manual? Nodes are tools that help you create a material just like a screwdriver is a tool to help you build things. You wouldn’t find that much info on the screwdriver either. You’re probably better off watching stuff on youtube to get a general feel for how to approach building materials, or download some and see how they work.

There has been some postings here showing reference pictures of what happens when you tweak a slider. I’m sure someone else will tell you where they are (I can never remember what to search for :)).
