No UVs*, customisation and infinite variations : the power of procedural texturing

  • Don't need to unwrap UVs 🤗
  • No seams effects 😎
  • Infinite resolution 🤩
  • Infinite variations ♾
  • High level of customisation ⚙️

*obviously, the patterns node need UVs.

Say no to big nodes you don't understand and avoid scary node trees with 300 nodes.

Materializer strikes a balance. Understand your materials and see your skills improve.
The workflow is based on layers, layer mixers and stackable effects and offers both great customization and complete understanding while limiting the size and complexity of the node tree.

Road map
