I’ve recently just started with images and wrapping meshes. I’m having a few problems but I’m sure I’ll get the hang of things.
The biggest problem I have is finding images of a high enough resolution. I have a couple of images I want to use which are 2000x5000+ and I wouldn’t say the objects are complicated, but rust very quickly turns into marble when it’s stretched. Everything seems to turn into marble when it’s stretched!
I guess the answer is to break the objects into small bits, or have more joins and cover them with more objects, but I hadn’t taken that into consideration when I started this model. Also it’s very easy to repeat parts of the image and end up with a Wolfenstein asset!
I’ve tried to find a solution to rust without using an image, but every youtuber I’ve found that says “Rust with nodes only” starts by loading an image file. Which technically is a node, but I could really do with a solution that doesn’t use an image at all. I’m sure this is very possible and I need more practice.
If anyone knows of a link to creating rust without an image please pass it on.
