Bungie lead atmosphere artist Daniel Thiger runs us thru his tactics for generating sensible, compelling texturing fabrics with Allegorithmic’s Substance Clothier.
01. Create an preliminary form
To create this lava substance, I began with Perlin Noise 1 to outline the mass and density of the fabric. This noise has a excellent mixture of darkish and brilliant values with out an excessive amount of element. I then used directional warps and blur nodes to outline the path of the lava glide.
02. Refine the shapes
To make the shapes learn as thick lava flows, I had to cut back the darkish values of the noise. The process I selected was once slope blur. Through environment it to ‘blur’ and the usage of sure values, I inflated the shapes. Warping was once then implemented to damage them up and upload imperfections.
03. Upload main points to the shapes
The reference used for this undertaking featured quite a lot of banded layers working perpendicular to the glide. Through the usage of tiled gradient maps that I warped with my primary form, I made the layers seem tucked in beneath. Further warping and slope blurs have been used so as to add variation.
The remaining steps incorporated mixing the subtle and detailed shapes in combination after which warping them for a extra built-in glance. I used Top Mix to mix the form with an offset model of itself to create a couple of extra layers. The overall contact was once so as to add micro element noise with fractal sum base.
