A Procedural Thread Texture Model

Adabala, N. and Magnenat-Thalmann, N.


Abstract: We present a technique for creating procedurally the texture of the twists of thread. The procedure is designed to support variations in appearance due to tightness of twist, thickness of the bundles twisted together and the roughness of the fibers. The procedural texture of the twist is further shaded to give it the appearance of a typical facet of thread that is visible on woven clothes. We demonstrate the utility of the texture by applying it to synthesize texture of woven textiles.
