Can't get Black patches.

Stuck on the Second Motion Graphic. Can't get those black patches. All my patches are three shades of grey. I've followed the tutorial closely but Dark Grey is as close to Black as I get. I've tweaked and tweaked.

  • Hi Kim, as far as I can see there are two possibilities;

    you didn't put the World to black ( the Principled Shader still reflects the light and color of the World), or

    you didn't move the black flag of the Colorramp far enough to the right. (The Noise Texture doesn't output all values between 0 and 1.

    In fact only a small range, which you can see in the following picture.)

  • kkimba200 I think spikexxx's first answer was probably the correct one.

    I don't know how many times I have been duped into forgetting that the World shading is holding me back.
