Shaders - Planet Night Lights

Published:

Tutorial about how to setup a Planet Night light Illumination Shader within Cinema 4D.

Things to Note

- You require the Nasa Earth Lightmap (or bluemarble) Texture for this Tutorial, Get it! ;) (Google!)

- The end result will be a fully dynamic scene independent and ONLY light dependent night light shader.

- Only describes the Illumination Channel, nothing else (to be honest, my current atmosphere implementation is in revision atm so i won't cover that anytime soon either)

This is 1 of ? shader Tutorials - You could say that it will be a series of them, though not sure whether the series ends with 1 or continues, depends on Feedback ;)
