In this collection of Softimage tutorials, we will be exploring the various nodes found within the Texture category of the Softimage Render Tree. We will be exploring topics such as creating bump-mapping effects, using the Sprite node to add transparency maps to Softimage particles, rendering complex displacement effects using the Vector Displacement Map node, and using the Camera Map node to render 3D objects directly over a live-action background, just to name a few of the nodes we will be exploring. Software required: Softimage 2012 and up.
