Procedurals create patterns that you can utilize alone or in combination with the Mapping and Color textures to create memory-efficient Procedural textures. Procedural tex­tures can also 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. Explore creating materials using these textures before resorting to image-based textures. Procedural nodes are available inside an Octane VOP network by right-clicking or pressing the Tab key (Figure 1).
