I’ve Finally Hit The Floor

Ever since I started exploring procedural wood shaders, I’ve wanted to then use those to make wooden planked floors. As I mentioned in a previous post, a wooden log is cut into boards by slicing it along the long axis of the trunk, moving outwards from the center. There are several ways to cut a log, but basically since I have a nice cylindrical chunk of wood I should be able to make “boards” out of it by simply moving the texture coordinates around. So, if I can get a repeated pattern across a flat plane, and move the coordinates […]

Procedural Wood: From Oak To Maple Finale

If you’re just joining, be sure to check out the other parts of this post or this won’t make sense: Part 1 Part 2 We left off in the last post with the Maple shader looking pretty good, but it’s not quite there. As I have been known to do, I went to the local lumber store and checked out some real Maple boards in addition to my online research. The ring patterns on Maple are definitely different from Oak, so we should fix that. We haven’t really talked about the Noise that we added to the Rings, aside from […]
