Distorted Textures

Recommended Posts

Hi,I'm having some issues with texture distortion...Here's a simple case just to explain it: I have a polygon with a very LARGE width but very LOW height... If I use a 256x256 texture on it, it will be distorted... so, is there anyway that I can manage to use 256x256 or at least 512x512, without having to generate textures with HUGE proportions(like 2048x128), in order to achieve a rather normal image???Many Thanks,Jean.

Hi Jean,I think you already indicate the solution yourself, if the polygon has a aspect ratio that is really different from the texture you will always get some distortion.So you can do one of these two things:1) Either use a texture that has a aspect ratio that is closer to your polygon (like 512x128 or something like that).2) Only use a partion of the texture. So assume you have a 512x512 texture, then you use only the lower 512x128 portion. You can use the rest of the texture then for other part or objects.Arno

Or assuming you want the same texture to be repeated time and time again on the long object, why not use tiled textures (GMAX, FSDS2).
