Hey there Café
Forgive me if this is a novice request but I don't actually use the shader effector much. I am learning how powerful it can be so I'm trying to remedy my neglect of it. Anywho, I've been hunting the forum and other tutorials online to try and get answers to my set up, so far nothing has answered what I'm after.
Perhaps Im just not understanding how this effector operates which is causing me to not get the results I'm after.
I have a cloner grid , made up of have a shiny dark orange material I made in the material editor.
I then have one instance of the Shader Effector used to scale up a chunck of the cubes. This chunk I want to apply a 2nd material I made which is a shiny light orange.
Finally I have a second instance of Shader Effector inside the first one which is smaller and scales down the cubes and these cubes I want to apply my third material which is a shiny white.
Right now I am getting the proportions of the scaling as I like it, but am not sure how my colours are the way the are or how to get them to the materials I want.
The initial cubes are orange because I told my cloner to have an orange colour. If I drop a material on my cube in the cloner or on the cloner itself it makes the whole setup have that material but then I loose the colour effects of the two shader effectors.
Inside the shader effectors I can set a user defines colour within the Parameter tab, but these light orange and white colours do not have the look of the materials I made which I wish to apply instead of just using the user defined colour mode.
Also it seems that in the shading tab for both the shader effectors the way my cubes scale up and down is based on how I have things set. Right now I like the scaling and both are happening with a colorizer , input set to luminance then the texture set to colour shader with a black to white gradient. If I mess around in here or change from a colorizer to something else then the scaling of my cubes change which I don't understand why and in ways I do not want.
I've attached a screen grab & also my project file for anyone who doesn't mind taking 10 minutes to help a guy out.
Thank you kindly.
