Gravel Shaders WIP
« on: June 15, 2018, 09:02:04 AM »
Two shaders in use here, a Gravel Road Compressed, and Gravel Road Loose, as well as a "natural" (to the environment) rock surface that isn't part of the road shaders. Dune grass 2 and 9 for ambience. The basic dirt around the road was bugging me. I forgot to add base displacement to the road leveling so the tread paths look too flat imo. Doing another render with higher GI settings and a base displacement over night.

My usual "high contrast" type camera post processing, though I forgot to mask out some of my fake AO which made the grass to dark trying to add a bunch of shading.

Attention to real world detail and random imperfections pretty darn good! Good job!

Thanks. Here is an update with the added displacement that was bugging me being absent. Upped scale and amplitude of displacement for the dirt. File is available in File Sharing section without Dune's models.

Here is the original TGD with the models and distributions still added if you want something already setup to the road specifications.

This is excellent. I love it when people apply themselves to one thing. This and the recent pothole are examples of how focussing on one thing can be rewarding. Thanks for the share too!
