can you create custom materials/node groups in Maya or is that one thing that Blender actually does better
>>618193read the fucking manual
>>618195if you linked the relevant manual page for this I would happily read it, because I can't find anything like this in Maya
you do it in vray senpai
>>618222what if you dont use vray tho
>>618193You mean like with the maya node and node attributes editor?
>>618228Same as you use raytrace render instead of blender render senpai
>>618193You sort of can using hypershade and utility nodes, but it's kinda shitty. Samplerinfo node is the best maya has to offer, next to remapHSV or remapValue.
>>618193I have to agree with you, as Hypershade seems to be very unoptimized most of the time, and the meme software somehow does it better. 3ds max seems to do it right from what i've tried.
