show user profile  3joez
I need circles irradiating from a small point and getting bigger towards the outside.

Does it have to be procedural? can you not do it in max with arrays?

Well, I thought about it. And that's what I did before. But I need something quicker and cleaner.
Something with paths or similar.

Ok did it. Export them in ai, but in PS i see only a big black circle (i drew 200 of them,in Max).
I don't have AI, I must mention.

What are you trying to do?

Do you have After Effects? Could make an animated map for this in 2min....

No, no, I'm working for a commission where the base of a chair must be of brushed steel.
The brushes are circular and all the maps I have reveal some ugly big grooves. I need to
put them in reflect, bump and anisotropic rotation maps in vray.
They have to be small and precise as I say, since I must represent an exact photo for an architect.
I tell you, it's hard, at least for me.

Got a pic?

Or I guess im wondering how many concentric circles do you need?
You can make some in the Gradient Ramp texture using Radial and Solid interpolation......but I doubt you could make 100 in there....?

Thanks Joey, that was exactly the map I was using. It has way too big grooves.
Somehow, I'm getting there stretching a noise map 100 times along an axis and then applying
a cylindrical map to the chair base.
It's not a very elegant solution but it's working pretty good.
