Hi everyone,

Here is my Gnomon Tutorial on procedural texture creation. Been working on this on and off. Hope you all like it. I hope I do not put anyone to sleep :D

Description

In this lecture, Rogelio Olguin will introduce the basics of texture creation with Substance Designer. Rogelio begins by showing the steps to create height information, the initial foundation of the texture. The design of a cobble stone texture is then demonstrated from start to finish. During the process, Rogelio goes over his techniques and workflow for creating simple tools that combine into one final texture that can have endless procedural possibilities. You will get an insight into Rogelio's texturing philosophies when it comes to the visual interest of texture creation. Ultimately the goal of the lecture is to share powerful Substance techniques that can be used to create virtually any texture.

    WoW This is awesome Rogelio. Thanks for taking the time to put this together.

    I've only just started watching the second colorize video but I've already learned so much workflow wise. Its already made me think differently about how to approach the substances i am working on.

    Thanks again and keep up the awesome work, it truly is an inspiration!

    Is this 100% procedural? Did you import any maps for this?

    Hi Rogelio, thanks for making this, it's a great lesson for beginners like myself. I just finished the third video, but some questions popped in my head that I'd like to see if you could answer so that I can get them out of my head and enjoy the rest of the videos...

    Having no highpoly or lowpoly created for this, how would one implement this efficiently to a game engine? The way this may be done will of course vary depending on the budget and platform (we could just make a plane, import the substance and call it a day), but if we had some budget for the walls and wanted the mesh to resemble the texture more, could we create a highpoly from the height map, and then decimate it like with ZBrush' decimation master? More details towards the edges of the walls, and if our shader allows us to we could import into the game engine our height map for some parallax magicks etc...

    Short answear is sure you can do this. For example what we tend to do at work is use a stone wall and on the corners add more geo details to make it look like the stones are actually poping out the important thing is to set your normals smooth and flat angle to avoid vertex normals affecting normals of a flat. Kind of like tesstalation in unreal but not as expensive since it is done carfully we have tools that help the process but it can be done by hand. If you need a more visual example let me know.

    A visual example would be awesome, I'm very curious about this technique!

    Obviously if you are willing to share some visuals, that'd be fabulous. In any case, thank you for taking the time to write that Rogelio.
