perforated material
« on: June 29, 2010, 08:56:13 am »
I've tried my question in the general material forum, but maybe I've more chance to get an answer here... :p
I'm a fresh new keyshot2 user and I was wondering how I can make a perforated material (I need to make a kind of "opening wicker" ). I've seen that there is some perforatedd material in the keyshot library as leather for exemple, but I dont really understant how it works... Is there anybody who know where I can find the transparency map (because I only see specular, bump and texture map) ?
Thank a lot for your answers Smiley

If you create a tiff file with alpha channel, and a normal map from this file, then you can apply both in the general material and get the desired effect.

Indeed, I've saved my  map in TIFF but I forgot to enable the alpha channel so it didn't work.... oups!
thanks again :)

Select all the areas you want hollow, select inverse, copy and paste on new transparent file and save as png
