Shader, Material, Map & Texture

Beginners in 3D creation are often confused on the difference between “material” and “texture” and would often interchanged incorrectly when using these two terms since they are all used to change the appearance of objects. In order to get more realistic rendering effects to objects, we need to first understand the difference between these two concepts. And before that, there are two more concepts texture and shader, we will need to get to know as well.
