Functions Overview

 

The heart of Texture Maker is the rendering engine with its vast arsenal of Functions. You can start to create a texture with a Generator function to render the basic material.

Refine the textures with the Filter, Color and Noise operations and achieve special effects with the various Distortion, Distraction and Bump functions.

Use the Brush functions to paint with your mouse or a tablet.

A special class is the Make Seamless functions group. Use them to render seamless textures from any image.
