Author Topic: two beginner questions  (Read 880 times)

hey, I have two questions:

1. when trying to make a material like this herringbone pattern stone walkway with a regular pattern on the borders, is it easier to make the mesh with separate faces for the borders and use a different material with a regular pattern, or is it easier to make the substance material to adapt to any shape of mesh and have a more regular pattern on the borders?

2. I've seen quite some wood tutorials online, but the procedural wood grain texture they make is always unrealistic, even cartoonish, so is it possible to make the planks procedurally but use a wood texture image for the individual planks, and have them use random parts of the image for each plank?

thanks in advance
