Join Joel Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video Using generator nodes to create large surface detail: Part 3, part of Learning Substance Designer.
- Although we are moving along nicely…in our creation of surface stress or cracks…for the aged concrete substance that we are creating,…one problem I can foresee is that if we applied…what we have at this moment in time to our mesh,…well, the cracks that we have generated here would in fact…be present across its entire surface.…Now this may be exactly the effect…that we are looking for artistically…in which case all is good.…However, as in this case, the substance is going…to be brought into a game engine,…and be used to cover a large surface area…on the geometry that it will be applied to.…
I really would like to have some mechanism avaiable…by which I can mask the possible repetition…of details that may show up here.…The other bonus of doing this right here…in substance designer is that we can actually then…expose the mask parameters we create to the artist,…meaning that he or she can adjust the frequency…of the cracks that appear at any given time, on a per shot,…per seed, or even indeed on a per level basis.…
