Hi everyone!

I was looking through the forum and I can't seem to find an answer to my question. I am trying to make a radial brushed metal. The brushed metal provided in Keyshot does not have an option for it to radiate from the center of an object (even if you press spherical or cylindrical)...Does anyone else have any ideas?




I have made a circular grain by using photoshop. create an new square image and fill with white. Apply a Gaussian noise filter; then a radial blur on top of that. Change you image to grayscale; then go to the channels tad and ctrl select the gray channel. Switch back to the layer tab and using the selection you now have; delete the background from the image. Change your image back to rgb and save as a tiff with transparency saved. You now have an image you can apply as a texture, bump, or label.
