About 'Projecting Textures'!

In this video (objectives)…

  1. Texture our models really quickly
  2. Use project to mitigate the UV unwrap process

After watching (learning outcomes)…

Be able to quickly texture objects using projection rather than UV unwrapping.

I tried 2 projections of textures. One is a rock texture and one is an Agate texture. The agate is a lower resolution picture that I thought I would try because of its interesting colors.

Rock Textured:

It reminds me of an asteroid.

The next one is the Agate texture:

I decided that my rock did not have enough character so I made this one. It gave me a chance to test my understanding of displacements and projecting a texture.

This rock looked so interesting, I thought I would make a little movie in Blender 2.8.

That’s a really nice texture! Great work.

Thank you, it was a lot of fun to do.

I have not reached this part yet, just curious, blender can project objects to the surface - so that we can get textures?

Totally incredibly credible asteroids above!!!

Animation based around my “cracked earth rock”

I have already textured a number of asteroids in earlier lessons and wanted something a little different this time so I created another variation. This time I grabbed a texture from Texture.com and came up with this

I was rather happy with the results until my wife said it looks like something that came out of someone’s bumm

Edit
I went back and created an annimation for this lesson

Same rock as before, this time in water and not in sand and with a projected texture (free texture).

I think my rock photo isn’t good for this type of mesh.
