Sci Fi Funk has released a 4 part tutorial showing us how to apply rust shaders to a bunch of imported cars.
How to make rusty wrecked cars Tutorial. Using cheap models how to amend shading domains and apply rust shaders to your 3d models. I start the tutorial by looking for cheap (low poly) wrecked cars. The only ones I could find that were reasonable priced were (inevitably) in max format. So they need converting to something usable by Poser or Carrara. I briefly explain how to install 3ds max (for poser people). The only way I could export successfully was via obj format, but the shading domains are all over the place and I couldn’t get materials out. Even if I had they would need editing to rusted shaders. I explain how to model cars to make them look wrecked (move doors, bend plains etc).
