Tip for equalize / balance in textures in Photoshop

 

Sometimes your texture is almost 100% seamless and tileable. But small differences in light and shadow easily show that this is a tiled texture and it's a 3D image.  As humans we always look for patterns and they are easily spotted and by equalizing the texture you make it more believable.

In this follow up tutorial on how to create Object ID for your fabrics, I only use Photoshop to create these maps. This really depends on your source texture and other element if it's easy or hard. Sometimes you need to do a lot of small tweaking to make it work, and here I show you the main principles.

If you haven't seen Fabulous Fabrics I recommend you do that :)

Fabulous Fabric with Object ID maps

 

Poliigon has started creating fabric textures with Object ID maps. They add a more convincing look on your fabric, and they are really easy to create your self. In Arnold render you can connect these to the coat layer in standard surface and I really like the result that gives.

I show how I used it to create a wool material for a Hiroshima Chair by Naoto Fukasawa.

Arnold Ice Material Tutorial - Using Cinema 4d, Arnold Render, B2M & Photoshop - Texture02

 

In this tutorial I show how to create an ice material for Arnold Render. In photoshop I make the material base based on a picture. It's made square and seamless for ease of use. Then processed in Bitmap2Material to create different texture maps. Then mixed together in Arnold Render.

This is a little more advanced then the first material tutorial, and hope you like it.
