This page contains information about the V-Ray Cloth Texture in V-Ray for Modo.

Overview


The V-Ray Cloth Texture generates a procedural woven cloth pattern. It gives a high level of control to produce the look of a loosely or closely woven cloth with or without random weave distortion. Its channels can be connected to texture maps.

Parameters


 


 

Gap Color – Controls the color of the gaps between the fabric fibers. For more details, please see the U Color, V Color and Gap Color example below.

U Color  – Controls the Horizontal thread color.

V Color – Controls the vertical thread color.

U Width – Controls the horizontal thread width. For more details, please see the U Width and V Width example below.

V Width – Controls the vertical thread width.

U Wave – Controls the  amount of wave in the horizontal direction. For more details, please see the U Wave and V Wave example below.

V Wave – Controls the  amount of wave in the vertical direction.

Randomness – Controls the amount of randomness in the weave of the cloth.  Lower values are subtle, while higher values distort things more often in interesting ways. For more details, please see the Randomness example below.

Width Spread – Controls the gaps between the threads in the cloth texture.  Higher values make the gaps bigger, while smaller values keep the threads tighter together.  In this way a loose weave look can be achieved.

Bright Spread – Controls how far the lighter highlights on the threads reach in the weave.

Notes


By putting the same value into the U Wave and V Wave interesting diagonal effects can be achieved.  Similarly loose weaved fabric effect can be produced easily by using higher values in the Width Spread channel.
