I released a new plugin for Cinema R12/13 Win (currently no Mac Version available), the [b]Art on Bit - Surface Curvature Shader![/b] Here a quote from my homepage:
Create dirt maps of all kinds! With the full angle control combined with wind, you can distribute dirt, scratches, rust or abrasion regions, wherever you need them.
[li]Some more buzzwords: Hardsurface, Organic, Weathering, Morell[/li]> [li]No UV mapping necessary, very useful for complex objects and the use of procedural textures.[/li]> [li]With a little tweaking, effects close to Ambient Occlusion or Subsurface Scattering, can also be achieved.[/li]> [li]For artistic use with deforming objects (animations).[/li]> [/ul]

Here is the manual to it: [Manual](http://www.artonbit.com/images/cinema4d/cinetools/scs/Manual%20v1.0.pdf) Attached are two renderings made by [John Strieder](http://about.me/johnstrieder) with the AoB - Surface Curvature Shader: [img]http://www.artonbit.com/aob/images/stories/Cinema4D/SurfaceCurvatureShader/js-ajax-render-04.png[/img] [img]http://www.artonbit.com/aob/images/stories/Cinema4D/SurfaceCurvatureShader/js-ajax-render-05.png[/img] Regards, André
