Component texture Help junkie fix

Postby paolo » Mon Jan 05, 2015 1:18 pm

Hi, I'm doing the Pinecote pavillion but this time tried to be a bit 'clever' by scaling the same component for all columns and beams.How to apply a wood texture avoiding obvious repeating pattern? have tried uvtools to uvlayout but doesn't open components, wont like to use Texturerandomizer cause I think will defeat the purpose (keep file size small)
I am about to explode everything jajaja but will like a 'fix' is possible. I know similar issue has raised but not good solution.
:knockout:

Use different textures per component. Same advice as previous issue raised!

Thank you Casca. The first option is better in this case, if I'm not wrong still represent two variations using two materials for many component instances.

When I create wood grain materials for SketchUp, I use images of whole boards (8-14 feet long depending on species) and usually 4 or more from the same tree. This makes it possible to use different parts of a board on a project much like you would do if you making the project in real wood. It also prevents repetition. The textures I create are not seamless but then real wood isn't either.

Thx Casca and Dave,
guys I have tried TIG idea for the pinecote pavilion which I think went ok, using a rectangular components for all columns and beams, trying to keep file size small. Please check the model in the 3d warehouse as pinecote pavilion ( about 6mb but went to 7mb after location) please let me know what you think.
