Author Topic: Sub 1 tile rate on a texture??  (Read 1298 times)

Hi all,
I'm trying to find a way in designer so that I can set a textures tile rate to less than one.
I am currently using safe transform to create various offsets on the same wood texture to be applied to shape nodes which form part of a chevron patterned wood floor.
However I would like the wood grain to be larger on each plank, so I really need the ability to apply a sub 1 tile rate to the texture.
I can increase the tile rate in the safe transform node but not reduce it.
Does anyone know of another way in which I can do this?

Also Allegorithmic guys and girls, It would be great if you could change it so that you can apply a sub 1 tile rate on the safe transform node. :)


Hi Jack,

The material is looking very nice : )

The transform node in terms of tiles needs to be at increments of 1 or else the tiling will break. If you use less than 1 values (zoom in) it will break the tiling. You can see this if you hit the X2 button on the transform node.

Here is an example that I got from Nicolas Wirrmann that allows me to zoom, but it does break the tiling.

Cheers,
wes

Hey Wes,

Thank you for your reply.

It is possible to achieve the effect I'm after in Substance Painter without breaking the tiling by reducing the UV scale below 1 on a given layer.
Is it not possible to do something similar in Designer?

Also thanks for the sbs, I shall give it a go :)

Thanks,
Jack

Hi Jack,

It's not possible to scale which, would be a below 1 tile without breaking the tiling of the image.
