Recommended Posts

Anyone have a swirl texture, like sometimes I will see aluminum swirl finish on counters and things.

I'll take a stab.

Create a new texture in RW - First mid grey in Photoshop -Add Noise - Distort - Blur - Motion Blur - Radial Blur - Levels - (adjust until you get a b&w swirl). Save as Tiff.

In VW duplicate Aluminium Texture - edit the duplicate - Bump - Image Bump - use the tiff.


will take some tweaking but I expect you'll get what you need.

Hello MattG:

Try Edit Texture->Reflectivity->Anisotropic, Turned. That produces circles of scratches like what you want.
