Join Donovan Keith for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating concrete with seamlessly tiling textures, part of Creating Materials in CINEMA 4D.
In this video, we'll be using image based textures and the tiling settings in the…texture tag in order to create a seamless concrete texture.…When you're creating materials, you typically have two uses.…One is going to be a material that's being specifically created for single object for…a specific shop. And with that you have a fair amount of…freedom in how you want to approach it. In another example, you're trying to…create a texture that you can reuse across a number of different projects.…And if you're going to use an image-based texture, you want to try and create a…texture that is seamless and that will tile well.…
Some textures may be seamless, but won't tile well.…This right here is a great example of that.…What we have is a texture to put it side by side by side with itself.…It would tile seamlessly. But the blemish here would make its…presence known pretty quickly. A better texture would be something like this.…It's pretty anonymous. There are no strong shifts in lighting…across the image. And all in all, this is a pretty good…
