    Wood projection material

    I tried using some of some of the methods from my triplanar materials to make a projection based wood material. This is the result so far:



    It only uses 2 textures for albedo and normal mapping. The rest, including the rings is a result of deforming the texture projection. Let me know what you think.

    Nice! Looks good - I didn't see any odd stretching. How did you go about this? And what do you intend to use it for or is it simply an experiment?

      When I get the material cleaned up a bit I plan on doing a tutorial for it. There is some stretching in there, but I did it in such a way that it follows the ring pattern of natural wood. My main use for it was for cabinet doors. I've found that they require massive textures to look good up close without projection and this was a natural evolution of a uv projection method I was using earlier.

      I still need to add some ring distortion so that it doesn't make perfect circles and arcs and up vector direction masking. It also doesn't work with destructibles yet, but I've filed a bug report so hopefully it will soon.

        This is pretty impressive! I love how it looks on torus and spring.

            Here's a new one:



            I still have a few issues to work out before I release the material.

              That's seriously awesome. Nice work. Would be perfect for the interior material for a wooden destructible.

                Destructibles don't work yet, but one of the developers is looking into it.

                Now I have to figure out how to clean up this mess:




                183 instructions and 5 texture samplers
