Join Adam Crespi for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a poured concrete material and linking the textures, part of Creating Formed Concrete 3D Textures.
- As always with our textures,…the true test is to put them to use in a 3D application.…I'm here in Autodesk Maya 2015,…where I've created a small sample structure…and we'll put some concrete onto it.…I'll start out by setting my project,…choosing File and Set Project.…I browsed into the Exercise Files\Ch02 folder,…and there's a project called Gallery.…I'll double click in there and click Set.…It's a standard Maya project,…with scenes in the scenes directory…and textures in the source images.…
Now I'll open the scene,…and in here I'll open up 02_01_start.…There's our gallery.…It's a small, concrete structure with some steel:…steel fascia, steel roof over the main entry,…aluminum frame windows, including a corner window,…and a walkway and exposed aggregate concrete floor.…When we zip outside into perspective, you can see I've done…some very, very quick terrain sculpting.…We'll call this a midway through model.…We've got the basic structure in place,…and we're ready to dial in some materials…and then give it a landscape pass…
