i'm making modular assets with tileable textures. the thing is i make textures in substance painter and when i'm done they are not tiling properly. for example this asset. i highlighted the edges that i want to tile seamlesly. how do i make them tile properly?
manually map the texture on the uv-mapuse photoshop to make the texture seamless on the edgesthis is basic stuff drop substance painter
Yeah, a painting program, such as Substance or 3DCoat, wont do. You're looking at some careful manual work here.Or you could hide the seam with some other geometry, such as a bump along the seam line of the same concrete material as in your existing picture, while making it look like it's supposed to be there anyway.Or... but as a Max user I dont know how to do this in Blender... you could use two maps for the model, one is for your tiling bricks and one is for your more unique parts like edging and wooden bits. Then you assign them to different map-channels and then you can map them separately; detailed bits in a detailed manner, and the bulk bits using some bulk method, such as box mapping; and they wont be affecting or ruining each other in this way. You would apply this same box mapping to the whole building, then you'd lose all the seams on flatter areas but you'd gain some seams on the sharp edges (this is, to me, preferable). Buildings are angular and sitting nicely on a grid, it'll possibly look fine enough for you.http://www.neilblevins.com/cg_education/blended_box_mapping/sphere1.jpg
just use two materials if you don't want to tweak your UVs.Use one material for bricks and another one for other parts.The brick part should cover whole area, use snap to grid to align corner vertices. That way it will tile. Check with proper checker texture before applying something else. If you must use one texture for everything, then watch some substance videos on texture atlas creation.
>>520440You open the texture or image or whatever in photoshop, do a offset of n-number of pixels so the seam is now somewhere in the middle of the image, then you use standard image editing techniques to remove the seam. Once you're done you just reverse the offset with the same number of pixels to place the seam back at the edge.
>>520440Substance Designer is the right tool for modular assets with tileable textures. If you use Painter without the power of the procedural substances you're doing it wrong.
