PVC Texturing?


Recommended Posts

Hi Gang,

If there is a tutorial for this subject or the question has already been asked, please guide me in the right direction. I'm making a 3D outfit. I want the material to be black PVC. How do I make that effect? Texture size is 256 x 512. I will apply it to an opacity map. (If anyone is familiar with IMVU, they'll know what I mean.) If you need any other info let me know. Also, If I need plugins for this, links would be great. Thanks for the help!

BTW...On my homepage, and in the forums there, I totally support Paint.net. Even converted some GIMP users. (I'm anti-GIMP, sorry!)

Got any examples? (I have no idea what all those acronyms mean)

PVC=Plastic

Edited to remove picture

IMVU= 3D chat client in which I am a developer for.

BTW= By the way.

Edit: Or is this just a matter of me making the white areas fit a solid colored area?

Edit Again...sorry...the picture is not my work. I "borrowed" it off the IMVU catalog to show you an example.

The best way to achieve the effect is with material settings; reflectivity, specular settings, etc. If you're looking for high-res, I suggest adding a bit of noise and doing brightness/contrast, and for any hemming you might have, you're likely going to have to draw a good bit of it yourself.

EDIT: If you can't do lighting settings, then draw some highlights n a new layer, blur the layer, and maybe lower the layer opacity a bit. Mess around, see what you can get.

Well, thus begins my problems. I have no idea what the settings should be. I never really worked with layers in Paint.net. (I mostly use RealDraw Pro, which is object oriented.) Really just learning all this stuff myself, but I have an individual who is using Paint.net (one of my "converts") asking me how to do these things.

Layers and the effects throw me off since I haven't messed with using those. Sorry for being an idiot, but I just have no clue what to do or where to start.

I am trying to learn PVC texturing with this program (which isn't against IMVU rules) but yes if you're referring to the pictures being posted, you're right. Having these pictures up is a bad idea, because noone can be trusted anymore. I will remove those pictures immediately.

Edit: fixed
