Hey all! This is my first post here, though I’ve benefited from your support threads all the way from day one! You guys rule. I figured it was time to join, though I’ll not be helping much yet, I’m barely 4 months in blender!
Anyway, I’d like a little bit of help regarding nodes, if anyone can spare the time. I don’t have a very healthy understanding of the shading nodes, though I can do some stuff there on my own, I’ve mostly learnt through following tutorials, but they never stop to explain the reasoning or mechanics.
Right now I’m playing around trying to texture a word. I’ve turned my letters into a mesh, I’ve got something decent, but here is the catch : I’d like to make the red edge metallic, and the blue part dull, and I have no idea HOW. I have a hunch that I should probably plug my wave into something and that something into the metallic and roughness input, but whatever I try doesn’t work and I’m groping in the dark. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
