Parameters


You will find below all the parameters from Bitmap 2 Material, allowing to control your material in a very precise way.

Image Inputs

Main Input: Import your main image input (required as it will drive all the maps generation)

Grunge (optional): Import a grunge map

Metallic (optional): Import a metallic map

Height (optional): Import a height map

Normal (optional): Import a normal map

Global Parameters

Random Seed: Randomizes the position of the patches when using the "Random" tiling method.

Method: Set the method used to extract the maps. Slope based uses light angle and main input slopes to create the maps. Luminance based uses the image luminosity to create the maps.  

Light Angle: Only available with "Slope Based" method. Specifies the light direction in the Main Input image to help to extract correct informations from it.

Light Equalizer: Only available with "Luminance Based" method. Removes lighting informations in the Main Input image to help to extract correct informations from it.

MakeItTile : Makes the texture tile seamlessly and lets you choose between three different settings: No Tiling, Offset and Splat.

  • Off: the bitmap will stay as is.
  • Edges Quincunx: the texture will tile seamlessly using an offset/warp method.
  • Edges Linear: the texture will tile seamlessly using successive offsets and warp. Better result with patterns (bricks for example).
  • Edges Linear X: Same as before but on X axis only.
  • Edges Linear Y: Same as before but on Y axis only.
  • Random: the texture will tile seamlessly by randomly splatting patches of the original texture.

Tiling Transition Precision: Sets how sharp should be the transition between the original image and offset area.

Tiling Random Angle Variation : Randomizes the angle of each texture patch if you are using the "Random" tiling method.
