rotate procedurals


(rkimball) #1

Is there any way to rotate procedural textures? For example, I am using the wood procedural set on band, and I want to make the lines run vertically, rather than diagonally across the face. Is this possible?

thanks,

Yes, you can use another object to define the rotation of the texture. An Empty works well. In the middle of the Material Buttons window there is a green button labelled ‘Object’. Press it and then type in the name of the Empty in the space to the right (Be sure to type it exactly). Then rotate the Empty to rotate the texture.
