What up nerds!?!

Long time, no max...but I'm getting back into the 3d world, who knows if old folk are still around...the forums are still as ugly (but functional) as always.


Initial question was a bout building up an etching style shader/material...quick search got me started, so who knows if I'll have more Q's

hehe. totally. take me back pleeeeaaase.

howdy! what's been happening? anything really exciting?

ok, so I've been playing (now in 3ds 2012) and been trying to get a convincing (and as procedural as possible woodblock print texture going. So far I can get close, but I'm wondering how I can push it further (see second + third images - apparently created with MR in Maya...possibly with shaders?).

I can get it kinda close, but guessing there must be a way I can scale/taper the lines based on towards/away.

Any help appreciated.

well can't help you with your question, but the 2nd image is great for a woodcut style.
wtf is hypershade?

I think it's a Maya (or Mental Ray) shader builder...but I'm not sure.

Hypershade = Material Editor in maya.

If you're in max that graph helps you very little.

And not sure how much it may or may not help.....but checkout the Berconi Maps.....they have some good procedural stuff in there (free).
