Join George Maestri for an in-depth discussion in this video Texture mapping within materials, part of Maya 2015 Essential Training.
…Now when you start applying textures to objects, you…will need to control how those textures are placed.…Now there are two ways to control texture placement in Maya.…One is on the material side of it, the other is on the object side.…So on the material side, you control things…such as tiling and placement within in the material.…And then once you apply it to the object, you…can take that material and wrap it however you want.…So let's take a look at how to align objects to a material.…
We're going to start off with a very simple object.…I'm going to start with a nerves plane, which…is probably one of the easiest things to texture.…And so that's what we'll use.…And then I'm going to go ahead and apply a material to it.…So I'm going to go to my rendering shelf, and…let's just use a Lambert, make it very simple.…So I go to my lambert tab and in the color panel…click on this little checker board and then let's click on file.…Now, if I have my project set properly it'll bring me to the…chapter 9 source images folder and in that we have an image called face.jpg.…
