Old paint effect
show user profile  LeonardoDanielll
I want to get this old paint effect? I was thinking I will have to model the white paint falling in front of the old blue one. Any recomendations on how to do that?

a) Does it have to be fully 3D?
b) If not, has a bunch of good alphas / cutouts / decals for this.
c) Pretty sure there is a RayFire fracture that simulates cracking/chipped/old dry paint.

Looks like a job for a cloth sim to me.

I gotta check out trying this with rayfire. If using vray try a blend material with the same mask map in ur displacement.

@DonVella not actually used RayFire... But this seems to be up it's street. Let us know how you get on :)

I agree with 9krausec,
Easy to do with cloth, pin areas and tear others.

I fancied having a bash at doing this procedurally. Not too bad for a quick attempt and could easily be improved. Here's the result and steps i took:

Finished ( quickly done ) result:

First Step - Create a plane with plenty of segments, convert to editable, apply a Vol.Select, and create a noise map in the TextureMap slot with very close High/Low Threshold values..

Add an edit poly modifier, delete the selected verts from the Vol.Select, a click-drag select all edges in Boundary subobj mode to select all the holes. Quickly click-drag to deselect the outer edges of the plane. Next shift-drag and/or shift-scale the selected edges a couple of times to extrude out the open edges..

Apply a Noise modifier to the selected edges. I've set it with a low Scale and low Strength values..

Apply an Optimize modifier to randomize the polygonization a bit and open up the edges a bit for Turbosmooth to do some work in the next step, i just used the default settings.. Lastly, add Turbosmooth and crank it up to suit..

Hope that's helpful, it could be easily improved to create a fairly convincing procedural result..

Very nice work :)

I was thinking along the same lines as you SD. Didn't think about the Optimize modifier though !

But is it really procedural?

I would think that "procedural" it also means that you can change the result by changing some parameters.
As I read this then thats not posible a you do a destructive mesh edit...

Yeah, it's pretty much procedural, since you could do this all within the layer stacks and, with a bit of changes (e.g. edit poly modifier, border select modifier [if there is such a modifier] + push modifier instead of manually pushing the borders) I'm positive this could be scripted.

I get what you mean Pim yeah. Going down the stack and editing then back up again did seem to work. I guess it's procedural up until the point where you do the edge extrusions, generating the selection/pattern itself from a Noise shader i guess is the procedural part which can be changed easily to suit..

I think it could be easily scripted, which puts it in procedural territory imo.

Not trying to diss your effort, I just got curious to the procedural concept :-)
