Learning the Velvet shader

1000 samples. Path opencl Random. No Denoise.

I had been trying this with 2 or 3 velvet shaders with different Advanced values, then mixing them together with maps and Pointiness, but this one was done with a single Velvet shader and plugging a diffuse map (many thanks to Chocofur for the map) into a Band node and then into the Thickness socket. I would have liked the velvet to be a bit more plush and will try and obtain that next time.

Cheers all

Please, do not do you down yourself. This sofa‘s texture looks very great! I think you have topped yourself again with this excellent work!!

Thank you B.Y.O.B and FarbigeWelt

Feeling more confident :) , I'm thinking of creating a version which shows the fabrics on one side and the wooden frame on the other. It will be fun!

This setup appears to be working for me: I have the Velvet node at it's default values (makes sense really).

The attached is just a very quick render.

Could someone please just let me know if there is anything wrong or could be improved on in the node setup. (I will probably add some painted textures later, using the same node method).

Many thanks

I think you can replace the rightmost band texture with ColorMix node, which is a bit faster to compute.

That's interesting. Thanks, I'll do that.

I’ve been working on a couple of pieces of furniture and a chess set. Even though this is obviously far from done I really like Lux’s VELVET shader as it makes things so easy to do, so I’m grabbing the moment to show it off! :) (on the small cushion).
