This is a beginners tutorial Blender 3D 2.73 - In this tutorial we will add colour material to text and reflection to floor.
Now that we have created the basic objects for our video intro animation, we can start to think about adding materials and some reflections to improve the overall visual aspects of our animation work. We will use blender to create a custom material and also use blender to generate reflections. Will check some sample renders to confirm we are happy with the overall look and feel before proceeding to the next tutorial. In the next blender tutorial we will focus on adding particle effects to add some wow factor to our final rendered animation.
