Craggy cliffs…

This material was scanned near Malin Head, Ireland’s most northerly point last week, on this beach near the “Wee House of Malin”

I brought the DSLR this time, and I there’s a healthy increase in quality over some of the phone stuff I’ve been doing lately. From 50 odd photos, I should be able to create three separate tiling materials, the first of which is a craggy cliff like material made seamless in Artomatix. Here’s the obligatory material sphere:

And the breakdown (roughness was constructed by hand and the height map was done in Knald, everything else was baked from 3DSMax)

 

The whole idea of making seamless materials from 3D scans is so that materials can be decoupled from geometry and used elsewhere arbitrarily, in different scenes and lighting conditions. Here’s an example of some simple geometry:

This is how that same geometry looks with tessellation and the material applied (rendered in Toolbag 3, as ever)

I really need to stop making rocks. 😀 Here’s a video, you’d be hard pressed to spot the seams.
