Join Jim LaPier for an in-depth discussion in this video Textures, part of Up and Running with Vectorworks.
…Applying textures allows us to enhance the look of our drawings and…presentation so our objects look as realistic as possible.…Textures help take advantage of environmental features,…like shadows and reflections.…Here, we see a wireframe of three objects.…I've applied three different textures to these objects, but…the textures are only visible when rendered.…So I'll go to my teapot and select Fast Render Works.…Now we can see the brick, asphalt and…brushed metal as well as the Berber carpet base.…
Note, how the carpet reflects on the metal sphere here.…To add another level,…let's look at this in Perspective view by clicking View, Projection, Perspective.…To apply or change the texture of an object, I'll select the object,…in this case the cube, and go to the Render tab of the Object Info palette.…Using the drop down, I can select from a myriad of options including woods,…bricks, metals or glasses.…For this one, I'm going to select the Landscape Grass Fairly Green.…And we can see that the texture is applied to the whole cube.…
