Chapter 22 Wood Surfaces > Wood Tutorial 2: An Old Crate

Wood Tutorial 2: An Old Crate

This is not a step-by-step tutorial, but rather a guide to creating rougher, more messed up wooden textures using an old wooden crate as an example. Figure 22-17 shows the crate we’ll be looking at. (All three crates in this render are actually the same crate, just cleverly rotated to keep that from being too noticeable.)

Figure 22-17

This scene (and object) is on the companion CD, so feel free to load it up and follow along. The scene is called 7.2_crate.lws and the object is called 7.2_crate.lwo.

I have already set up the UV maps for this crate, exported them from Modeler, and opened the template up in Photoshop.

I start off my texture by scrounging through my vast texture library and finding some appropriate images of planks. I carefully place these planks around on the template, being careful to ensure that no repeated details appear close to one other.
