The Effects Of Various 3D Channels

Let us create some 3D objects and some extra maps just to see the effects of various channels on them. Create a cube around the sphere with the displacement map, and another sphere around that new cube.

Dirtying The 3D Scene Down

Computers do several things well, one of which is creating smooth, perfect surfaces. These smooth surfaces would be hard to achieve manually, but a computer seems to be able to effortlessly create glass like surfaces over which the light glides and the reflections roll.

Creating A Chain-Link Fence Using 3D Textures

Textures can be an incredibly powerful modeling tool. This may seem a little weird, but consider the rendering of a rendering of a chain-link fence created almost entirely from textures. To model the chain links intertwining would be a large task in itself; to model hundreds and thousands of these intertwining links would be a nightmare

Using A Greyscale Image To Define The 3D Texture

A grayscale image can serve as the basis for many maps that will help define the texture. Save a copy of this new grayscale image as “RustBump.tif,” and import this new map into the bump channel of the rust texture within your 3D application.

Creating Maps For Organic Shapes Through Grids

Regular texturing works fine for fairly simple shapes. The straight-on method is easy and offers a great deal of control. However, sometimes the forms to be textured are much more complex with many more variations across the face of the surface.

Increase The Feel Of Rusted Metal Of A 3D Object

We can further heighten the feel of rusted metal of a 3D object by augmenting the specular map so that parts of the nose have high specular areas of gloss, while the rust section is very flat. To do this, use the same texture map that was used for the reflective map, and place it within your specular channel. In the same way that the black areas show nonreflective surfaces in the reflective channel, these black spots show nonspecular or flat matte areas when placed within the specular channel.

Cherish Your Memories Forever by Creating Personalized Canvas Prints

Canvas prints have become the must-have home accessory for this century. Most homes have at least one print and more people are using their own photos to create personalized works of art.

Creating Plant Leaves Through 3D Textures

Organic shapes are perhaps the most difficult of all to do in 3D. As free flowing as they seem to be, our eyes can always pick out when the seeming randomness of organic shapes just is not right. Often, 3D animators try to model the complex shapes of nature, but are left with unbelievable and uninteresting shapes.

Chain-Link Fence Using 3D Opacity Maps

For a complex form such as a chain link, begin by offsetting the image in only one direction, working out the seams along that axis and then offsetting in the other direction. Now comes the tricky part: Seams cause big problems for filters, so the trick is to work those seams out. Sometimes the trick is to take selections of the image and move them.

Waterhouse Prints

Waterhouse prints are some of the most famous pre-raphaelite art works and the artist remains one of the better known British artists from the 19th and 20th centuries. This article uncovers the qualities of Waterhouse prints and discusses his best works and achievements from a full and distinguished career.
