I want to make a UV map of fur instead of the fur itself. But I can’t find a way to make the fur texture have a specific direction like you would with a fur particle.
I know I could just paint the fur one strand at a time but is there a procedural way to make a texture follow the brush direction?
This could be so handy for organic textures, it could be used for scales to point in a desired direction, for knitted materials, for metal scoring, etc.
What do the pros use? Is there an addon to make textures in Blender follow a brush stroke direction?
