Join Eric Keller for an in-depth discussion in this video Applying the turbulence texture, part of Creating Textures and Shaders in Maya.
In this movie we're going to take a look at some techniques for using the mental…ray turbulence texture.…So this is a special mental ray texture as opposed to the Maya textures and let…me show you where you can find this node.…Go to Window > Rendering Editors > Hypershade and as you know many of the Maya…textures are found in the Maya section,…2D and 3D Textures, but there are additional textures found here under mental ray.…So I'll click on the Textures heading here and you can see some of these…textures. There's quite a few, but I just want to use the turbulence texture just…to show you how the set up between Maya textures and mental textures is a…little bit different and the turbulence texture is a good way to point out some…of those differences.…
So, I will create the texture just by clicking on it. You can see it right here…in the Work Area, and I'm going to create mia_material for the teapot, so I'll…Go to mental ray > Materials. I'll use mia_material_x.…Just go to middle mouse button and drag this over the teapot to connect it, and…
