Hey guys,

I was wondering if someone somewhere has developed new noise textures for Maya. I'm basically looking for a cranial map like the one that comes default with C4D.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Can you post a image of what that kind of texture looks like.

Here's the image of the cranial noise in c4d.

I've tried making a black to white ramp and playing with the noise and frequency, but it doesn't give the overlapping effect that really sells the look.

This was a quick test I did . Has the overlapping effect but could use more tweaking.

Ya, I got the same effect using the same method but no matter what I tried, it never got the result that I wanted... I then went in and layered some wood layers together with blend nodes and layered textures... got it closer to what I wanted but no dice. I admitted defeat and went into C4D to get what I need

Thanks for the help though!
