Fabric is not always smooth; the fibers in the fabric often have subtle variations. Learn how to capture these variations in Substance Designer using a combination of normal and height mapping.
- [Instructor] With our color in place we can now start … to work with the relief of the material … and that's things like bump, normal, mapping, … roughness, and so on. … Now we're going to start this … with this basic cloth pattern that we created. … The first thing we're going to do is just do the normal map, … and that's pretty straightforward. … Now, from this, I'm actually going to create a level … and then do my normal. … So I'm going to right click, do add node, levels, … take my make it tile patch, drop that into normal, … drop it into the levels. … And if I want, I can change the levels however I want. … Now if I want to make it a little bit more contrasty … that will heighten the normal map. … So then from there, I can right click, add node, normal, … and then drop that into my normal map. … Now as soon as we do that you'll see that we've got … what looks like a much bumpier surface. … Now this is still very reflective … and we'll correct that in a bit, … but this actually can kind of show the bumpiness …
