Eliminate the Default Specular and start your Reflectance-based materials right

The Reflectance channel of Cinema 4D includes a Legacy Specular channel by default, but it doesn't have to stay that way. In this Quick Tip, you'll learn how to set up new defaults for the Reflectance channel, so all materials have a GGX reflection and Fresnel when created. For anyone using a reflectance-based workflow, this saves the step of manually deleting the Legacy Specular and adding one of the new Reflectance models.
