Need a paper texture
« on: November 28, 2010, 10:13:35 am »
I'm trying to create a textured white paper material - something like a quality heavy linen paper, or even a rough card stock material.

I have attached one example I found.  It looks like it was done using a wood grain normal map.

Any help or examples are appreciated.

hi,

I had a similar problem with cardboard-like material. What I would suggest: look for a nice picture of plain paper (or use your scanner, scan an A4) and use it as an normalmap. For the material itself, you must experiment (matte materials).

goodluck

Thanks guys - I went to CG Textures.  KeyShot does a pretty good job of creating a "normal map" from a plain image.
