This is not a guide to create materials, but rather how to read them, decipher the node spaghetti with techniques to break them into their main parts, trace through the branches and see how the results are arrived at, and what the key points are to adjust them. Included are reference section on coordinate systems, math and converters, shaders, and texture nodes.
