Blenderart Special Project: Material Node set-up 'Cookbook'


blenderartThe crew of Blenderart magazine is organizing a special project, about the Blender material node system. They want to create a material node set-up "cookbook". If you have a cool node set-up, this may be your chance to publish a tutorial at Blenderart!

If you want to know more about the project, and learn how to submit a node set-up, visit this thread at the Blenderartists forums.


  1. This is a great idea. How about requiring submitters to use a template .blend file? That would eliminate a lot of work on your part of having to "standardize" each submission. Maybe a setup similar to the CGSphere project with Suzanne as the main subject would work.

  2. I wish I had something to add, but I'm just discovering the power of nodes myself. This is an excellent idea for those of us who are rather ambiguous about nodes. Looking forward to it.

  3. ack! use the blender wiki!! and make it a project @

    maybe use and make it a research/learning project

    wikis are so dynamic it would be so flexible!
