- [Instructor] In this video, … we're going to take our totally weird … and distorted fish and clean it up a little bit … so it's not so distorted. … Now, there's one way to preview distortion … and it requires just a couple of steps. … First, let's switch to object mode. … Come up to our little texture area here … and click on new. … Where it says blank, switch it to a color grid … and name it just by clicking on untitled, ColorGrid. … That's pretty good. … Now, click on okay. … That will generate this cool little color grid … with a bunch of numbers on it. … Now, click on materials tab. … If our fish does not have a material, … you can go ahead and make a new one … and under base color, click this little yellow dot … and go to image texture, click the dropdown right here … and go to color grid. … At first, you may not see anything, … but if I hold down my middle mouse, … I can drag this little bar here at the top … or I can just move this over to get some real estate … and go to material preview. …
