Material Editor Standard material Basic Parameters rollout for the shader you've chosen

The Basic Parameters rollouts for Standard materials contain controls that let you set the color of your material, the shininess, the transparency, and so on, and specify maps to use for the various components of the material.

Example: The Basic Parameters rollout for the Anisotropic shader.

Basic Parameters rollouts vary depending on which shader is chosen.

The Basic Parameters rollout changes depending on which kind of shader you choose in the Shader Basic Parameters.

NoteThe Strauss shader’s Basic Parameters rollout is simpler than those for other shaders. See Strauss Shader for a description.

Component Controls

The first part of the Basic Parameters rollout contains controls for overall material components. They are described in the following topics:

Highlight Controls

The second part of the Basic Parameters rollout contains controls for specular highlights, which in some ways are the greatest difference between the various shaders. See these topics for a description:

For information on highlights with the Strauss shader, see Strauss Shader.

Translucency Controls

For the Translucent shader, an additional group on the Basic Parameters rollout contains controls for translucency.
