Mandelbulb Basic Light and Color Tutorial

By fraterchaos
A very basic tutorial I made to set out the main color and light controls in MB3D mainly meant for beginners who want to learn how the colors and lights controls work without having to learn it all by experimentation.

Might even be one or two small items that some opld hands don't know, but for the most part, if you've been using MB for a while, you probably won't need this tutorial.

I do hope it helps somebody.

the best starting place for MB3D is the three basic tutorials by HalTenny

To change all colors in one click;

Change random factor to 0
Choose a color
Hit random

The color will be set! :D
