Ultra fine realistic fabric shaders. This first collection is specializing in dramatic dance, sensual and luxury apparel fabrics. The focus is on glitz and glamor with lavish metallic, tactile velvets and satins, delicate netting and flashy sequins. Visually striking crinkle effects, pleated silk, wispy gauze, devoré and crushed velvet textures make for renders that will stand out from the crowd.
Fabrics exquisitely embellished with rhinestones, beads and many varieties of sequins, glitter and foil. Useful in your renders wherever you need extra shimmer to draw the eye or a fabric to set the sensual mood. A wide selection of metallic, lace, velvet, animal prints, brocade, Lycra stretch, sheer, glitter knit, damask, netting and more.
A truly versatile fabric collection, (counting large and small scale presets as one shader preset) there are 149 shader presets consisting of 68 unique tiling texture patterns plus some preset color variations based on those patterns. Many more color variations are possible by the end user customizing the diffuse and/or refection parameters. The basis for these shaders are 181 actual texture, bump, transparency and specular maps and the various material settings customized for DAZ Studio. As an added bonus it also includes 4 simple, easy to render Light presets that I have used in the promo images and one Render Settings preset so you can get great results with a few clicks, right out of the box.
Most of these Shader Presets come with a large and small scale version for ease of use and these, once loaded, can be modified via the parameters to perfection in your own scene. You’ll find these tiling textures are easy on your system resources and disk space too.
All textures are seamlessly tiling and by repeating can fill an area of any size. The tiling texture file sizes range from approximately 50 pixels for the smallest tile to 1500 as the largest with an average size of about 600 pixels per image map and a total size for the image folder of 55 MB. The variation in size is because the natural repeat in a fabric is very different from one to another, a netting pattern for example repeats in one tiny diamond but something like a pleated fabric not only encompasses the repeat in the weave of the fabric but also the pleats or folds as well. I have tried for a balance between looking natural and seamless in tiling, high enough resolution to show quality details and reasonable in size for your rendering speed.
