Pattern not showing in Blender 2.8

Hi there,
I am trying to follow the tutorial however I don't seem to get any shapes as you have.
I have gotten this far in the video, still nothing.
Am I doing something wrong?

I have tried both eevee and cycles, both show this black material
I opened a new file to start from scratch, just in case.

  • Hi ggarethgr  , your node setup is looking good so far :)

    If you didn't scale the plane up in the edit mode, select it, hit Ctrl+A and apply the scale. Alternatively, you can also change the X,Y and Z scale of your mapping node. The plane you're using seems to be smaller than the spacing so hopefully this will fix your issue, let me know!

    • I got  it working thank you, instead of the subtract, I added an Add by accident.
      All working now on a flat plane with scale applied ;)

    • Great that you figured it out ! Have fun with the remaining of the tutorial :) the Add operation would work as well, it’s just a matter of preference : with Substract, the positive value shift the texture to the right, which is to me more intuitive.

  • Awesome, thank you for the info I will try again and let you know where I get to ;)
