How can I choose the correct type of noise?

Recommended Posts

I am trying to give the letters in animation some sort of rocky sort of texture, so i decided to try to make a material with noise in the bump map. I can not really tell what kind of noise I should choose to look closest to that, because when I render it or look at it in AE, it either looks like a much smaller scale noise., or some weird mostly repeating texture, which clearly is not noise at all. Can anyone help me out? I am still very new to C4D btw. The image is what happened when i used the noise 'electric' and what it looked like in After Effects.

Electric probably not the best choice for rocks. You want Luka, FBM, Nutous, Buya or one of the turbulence based noises.

 

Rocky textures are best made by layering and distorting several kinds of noise with other types of noise - generally the more effort you put into blending and layering them, the more realistic things will look. If that sounds too advanced for you, you get can often get a better result using a bitmap texture of actual rock !

    Yes! I deicded I liked FBM the best, Electric was u=just the last one I happened to have on when making this thread. The problem is that the render is not correct.

    Its just that the noise looks completely different then what it should be. Like it basically just always turns into very small scale noiseno matter which one i choose.
