Hello! This is my first post on c4d cafe! That aside, I've been working hard to make a new texture pack for cg artists to use in their works to help speed up their workflow. Some stats include:
Normals, Bump, Specular, Diffuse, and AO.
All materials are ready to go and made as accurately as physically possible.
Here are some examples of 2 early versions just to give you an idea of quality. I realize this isn't nearly enough evidence for a texture package with 1,000+ materials, but this is just to generally show quality. Right now I'm at 30 finalized materials, but would like to do a little more market research before I continue.
That all said, I've got a few questions I'd like to ask so that I can make a product that makes people in the community happy to use on the daily.
Is 4k enough? Do you generally use 2K, 4K, 8K or another resolution?
How often do you use textures from third parties, rather than make your own?
Most of the time, do you use displacement or parallax bump? Why?
Do you prefer having multiple (max 3) of the same material just to have variation? Or do you like just have multiple of different types (no two being the same)? Example: 3 Materials of the same type of grass, yet 3 different pictures from different areas of the grass.
Do you prefer close ups or more distant images of textures. The texture pack will include both for many materials, but I'd still like to get your opinions on how much I should dedicate towards the matter.
What textures would you like to see more of that may or may not lack in most texture packages you see/own now?
If there are any notes you'd like to add that are not asked above please feel free to let me know!
Thank you so much if you take the time to answer these, it would really help me out.
