I have a couple of questions regarding procedural textures, aka 3D textures.
While I was in college I was hopelessly spoiled by Softimage, and now I would like to achieve
some of the same results with animated procedural textures. To do so, I need keyframe control
over all parameters: translate, rotate, scale, iteration, color, etc.
Question #1: Is there a 3DS4 plugin which has these features? I've been using the lovely
smoke.axp, but I can't control it as I'd like.
Question #2: Does 3DMAX have these features built in, as Softimage and Alias do? This could
almost justify an upgrade.
P.S. Check out http://www.best.com/~dryo/ for examples.
