mia_material HELP!


#1

Hi, I was looking for help on mia_materials. I wanted to know how to do a bronze texture but have that patina feel in certain ares where it is not shiny. Can someone please help me accomplish that or guide me to a tutorial on how to?! …Also how do you add a displacement map to an mia_material?

Here is what I want to accomplish

Hey man, I’d probably take a preset and play with it, till I got the right feeling of the brass base material, then used a layered texture to put another material on top with the texture I wanted, using alpha’s to control where the material shows and doesn’t.

If you need a tutorial on layered textures, here’s a decent one.
