Wood panels
show user profile  antoin_currie
Hi there,

Anyone any tips when using mental ray to create realistic looking wood panelling for kitchen cupboards. Would you literally use stock textures with UVs or use a material and some jiggery pokery within mental ray to create the desired effect?

Which one would be better, I have modeled a kitchen and I have dozens of wooden panels.

I guess it depends a little on the type of wood, but I think the best approach would tend to be starting with a texture file.

is the only good place to get decent textures for this sort of thing?
I don't want to have to pay, you guys know of anywhere I can get some?
It's just for my portfolio, not anything commercial.

From you can get textures for free, until you reach they 10MB/day download limit, also you can't download with 4K+ resolution I believe. So what's the problem with that?

-Anyways, Look into this thread for more websites.

Congrats, you found my signature.
