Procedural Geometric Generators

Geometric TexturesTextures are used to add details to a surface. Textures can be procedural or imported raster files. are a category of textures used to generate geometric patterns that can be used by themselves or in combination with the Mapping and Color textures to create surface effects. The patterns they produce are the result of geometric algorithms. This is a very memory efficient way to generate geometric patterns as the calculations require less memory than loading bitmap images. These are also used to create bump maps and other advanced materials with minimal impact to GPUThe GPU is responsible for displaying graphical elements on a computer display. The GPU plays a key role in the Octane rendering process as the CUDA cores are utilized during the rendering process. memory. It is therefore advantageous to explore creating materials using these textures before resorting to image-based textures.
