Texture mapping adds color, texture, opacity, and reflectivity to the surfaces of 3D models. Learn how to create realistic surfaces and shaders for 3D models with computer-generated bump mapping and reflection maps, your own maps from 2D images and 3D procedural textures with Maya, 3ds Max, and Mudbox, and more.
Make models with 3D objects, edit polygonal meshes, create surfaces and models with 2D shapes and splines, and more.
