HYPER-REALISTIC FABRIC MATERIALS

For BLENDER 3.0 and up

USING Eevee or Cycles RENDERING ENGINE

Introduction

HYPER-REALISTIC FABRIC MATERIALS FOR BLENDER is an innovative set of textile materials with great realism even in the micro details of the fabric. Thanks to the experience in the field of professional weaving of Designs For Textiles, was born this special package for all Blender users, at a price among other things really derisory compared to the large amount of materials, and the quality of the result, and the technology used to make the materials.

We are not faced with materials made with the classic system of scanning fabrics, but thanks to a technology of our realization, we create hyper-realistic fabrics from a 2D drawing as happens for the realization of real fabrics.
Now we make available to all users of Blender, the ability to take advantage of many hyper realistic fabrics pre-calculated, but still customizable in many features.

* All textile materials are taken from the collection of real fabrics, of our creation.

General Features

Our hyper-realistic textile materials for blender are made with different color variations and design types, such as floral, geometric, patterned and more.
All master textures that make up the materials are in high resolution and range from 1K to 8K, depending on the type of design.
The textures while maintaining the logic of the power of 2, for total compatibility in every occasion, are not always square, to better fit the design of the real fabric from which they are taken, there are texutre that are 2048×2048, or 4094×8192, and many other combinations.

The number and type of different materials of fabrics allows use for most needs and purposes, such as making clothes, cushions, curtains, carpets, scarves, sofas, and any other application of fabrics, as it happens in reality.

Since each pattern of each material has different dimensions, don’t be confused by the value of the texture resolution, because the 1K textures are already very high resolution because the size of the patterns that make up the 1K fabric are small, and don’t need more pixels (which would be a waste of memory), for a high definition result. So we can say that all of our materials render visually at the 8K level, even when they are at 1K.

However in order to have the best visual results also of the micro details, with high zoom levels of the camera, we suggest to use scenes with a resolution (if 16:9) of 3840×2160 pixels. In case you don’t need to have particular close-up shots it is more than enough a resolution of 1920×1080 to have excellent results.

*Every material is already perfectly set up for the Eeeve and Cycles rendering engine.

Customization

Each material is easily customizable in various characteristics. Each material is realized with different colors on the textile surface as it happens in the most refined and professional Jacquard textile creations (if you don’t know what Jacquard weaving is and its particular characteristics click HERE).

Here are all the possible customizations:

Colors

Each material is composed of various colors that can be modified independently, and each color generally corresponds to a “micro” detail of the design.
Thanks to this mode of color customization, “infinite” combinations of different colors are possible for each individual material.

Every single color of every material is customizable through shader control nodes with RGB wheel, brightness, contrast, saturation, hue and value.
It is also possible to modify all colors simultaneously for brightness, contrast, saturation, hue and value.

AO Map (Ambiente occlusion)

Each material is modifiable in the intensity of application of the AO map that allows you to change the micro shadows of the micro details of the surface of the various textile patterns.
All materials are already set for the best and most realistic visual rendering, but you can change the intensity at will for every need.

Roughness Map

Each material is modifiable in the amount of fabric roughness based on a roughness map corrected for each material. Each material is already set for the best visual performance, but you can change the intensity as you wish for any need.


Normal Map

Each material allows you to modify the intensity of the normal map to change the depth aspect precisely. Each material already has the normal map set for the best rendering, which is however modifiable at will for every need.

Displacement Map

Each material also has a displacement map that allows you to increase or decrease the effect of the material’s thickness and thickness curves.
This feature is only visible when using the Cycles rendering engine.

Also in this case the displacement map of each material has already been set to the best but it can be modified at will for every need, even to create special or unusual effects.

To maintain a high realism of the fabric we recommend NOT to use high values of displacement map but between 0 and 0.150 in the “scale” value, even if each material reacts differently to the values, so in some cases higher values may be good, in other cases less.
In this case you can experiment as you like with different values.

Optional:

Even if there is no specific map, it is possible to modify the values of SUBSURFACE to create a more or less visible transparency effect for fabrics, useful for example in some cases for fabrics that let light shine through, such as certain types of curtains.


Texture POSITION (pattern)

Each material can be modified in the position of the drawing with the modification of the values in LOCATION for values of X,Y, Z.

Attention: the modification of the Z value works only if a modification of the rotation value (i.e. higher or lower than zero) of at least one of the X,Y, Z values is active.




Texture ROTATION (pattern)

Each material can be modified in the rotation of the design by modifying the values in ROTATION for values of X, Y, Z.

NOTE: the rotation in X and Y also allows a deformation of the design to realize in a few seconds different design effects, even very different ones.
The greater the value of the rotation, the greater the deformation.

Rotation in Z rotates on the texture axis without deformation. Therefore, to rotate the texture correctly you only need to use the Z value modification.

Texture SCALING (pattern)

Each material can be modified in the resizing of the design by modifying the SCALE values for X and Y values (there is no variation if the Z value is modified).

Note: to scale the design of the fabric/material proportionally it is necessary to insert equal values in X and Y, with different values the dimensions will logically change following only the chosen coordinate.




Fabric pattern DEFORMATION:

Thanks to the change of the rotation values in X and Y and also thanks to the change of the texture scale in non-proportional mode, it is also possible to deform and modify the design of the material, thus being able to create new designs even very different from the original one.
This possibility adds even more customization possibilities to each material, recreating new design shapes using your imagination.

The deformation can be performed on any material even if it is recommended more on those fabrics that have geometric designs, fantasy, because other types of design, such as floral ones could give very strange results and perhaps not suitable for the characteristics of a design for fabrics.

Compatibility

HR-Fabric Materials 465 Pro was made for Blender 3.0 and higher versions, but is theoretically compatible with older versions that are not too old. However, we do not guarantee full compatibility with older versions of Blender.
