Metal textures for large areas

(John Nagle) #1

I’m looking for textures for large metal surfaces. There are lots of tileable metal textures, but they usually represent small areas of metal. Make them big and they look awful. Tile them and the repetition shows, especially if there’s any strong detail. Right now I need a stainless steel texture for an area about 5m across, for the side of an escalator. I also need something suitable for a long brass railing, not corroded or super polished but used.

Sounds like you want a procedural texture. Can you show examples of these small (tilable) textures you would like to have in large? Maybe I can come up with something suitable, then.

Can’t use a procedural texture. It’s for export to Second Life.
