I need a wood texture other than those offered in the default library, I need a cheap wood colour, the sort of wood one buys as battens in a diy store.
Where can one obtain more textures and how are they placed into Rhino ? Someone else asking for mac never recieved a reply so maybe this is not possible ?
I also wish to have choice of crown cut or quarter cut for all the woods on offer, crown cut giving the V patterns, the current beech is with short streaks.
Can I create a texture in photoshop, or acquire an image and what then needs doing to it ? resolution, file type etc ?
Secondly, in Materials tab, Basic Settings>Colour I created a colour via colour picker and drag dropped to a surface. Can that colour be edited and update across all instances of its use ?
In Freehand and Illustrator, a colour fill can be applied to a closed shape, then drag drop a different colour to that colour in the palette, and all uses of that colour take on the new colour.
If I select an object and click a texture, nothing gets applied, I have to drag drop texture to the polysurface, thats ok if its easily chosen. Why no ability to select object then click on wood ?
A good video on use of textures and colours and applying realism to ones objects would be welcome.
