Rock finish wall tiling.

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,


I am trying to get a wall with this rock tiling finish (Reckli-Steinwald).


Do you know where I could find different tiles samples to randomise them so it doesnt look repetitive?


Otherwise, would you create your own ones with substance painter? Or is it a lot of work? Would you randomise it individually?


Having in mind i have been given a sketchup file that i have imported to 3dsmax that looks like the jpg.


thanks guys,

Couldn't you just go into photoshop, duplicate the layer and change the blend mode to make several versions by just rotating one of the layers? I like substance designer very much, so that might be a god option too.


You don't even need to do that. Just use a Mix map in max. Use the original image, then in the 2nd mix slot use the same image but rotated say 40 degrees. Set the mix level to 30-50% and you'll be able to reduce some of the tiling. It's a quick way, but not always going to get the most perfect results. To take it a step further you could mix 2 mix maps together.


You could take it even further and use a composite map in Max to get multiple levels of blending.


Obviously using Substance is a good way to go, but sometimes it can just be overkill. Sometimes you just need to get the render out of the door.
