Have you ever seen an incredible 3D render, everything super detailed and realistic, but the textures seemed to be “off” somehow? It’s most likely they just didn’t use the right fabric shader! Everything from pillowcases to the clothes your characters wear, can leave an impact on your audience. A 3D artist must find the right resources, to create a believable world that observers can lose themselves in!
Unfortunately, texturing daz fabrics can be a difficult and tedious task. You have to take into account the thread count, type of fabric, weave pattern, various properties of fibers that are used in making different fabrics – all this just for one piece of geometry! Fortunately, there are many superb Iray fabric shaders available, and here I’m going to showcase a few of my favorites!
