Ways to think about the fundamentals of texturing to help recreate any texture. Applying these principals we’ll build a stone texture. Then quickly shade this using the previous cycles prime elements shader as a springboard.
In this tutorial I’ll share with you how to repeat an offset walk or run cycle in your scene and still have the ability to modify, layer on top of the base animation, and also completely edit any part of it later!
In this overview Chris Plush shows you some tips on prepping your 3d models in order to upload them to Shapeways.com for 3d printing.
Do you find that you create the same cycles shader setups again and again? Or perhaps you could do with a resource file to use as a starting point to build up some cool and complex shaders? If so, I’m hoping you’ll find this blend file of some use.
Here we’ll go over one way to help generate these sorts of cracks with worn edges, scratches and scuffs and give ourselves some versatility in the controls while we’re at it.
Need to create the illusion of millions of polygons? For games or film production that’d be pretty handy. Sounds like we need some tiling textures. No problem. Here I’ve outlined one way to do it in Blender.
This is the first of articles like this I’ll be making here at CG Masters, and I feel it could be one of the most important I’ll write!
An alarming amount of people give up on Blender too early on because of a few initial stumbling blocks. I can’t say I blame them, we must have all done it with something at some point in our lives. There’s what I think are 5 big ones here
