L3 Texture provides 15 new nodes to build advanced texture networks in Maya. The plugin contains procedural noise textures, regular pattern generators, coordinate displacement nodes and additional utilities. All texture features are fully animatable and mapable. Combination of procedural textures results in a huge amount of pattern. Examples include regular cell pattern, irregular structures like marble, wood or rock surface, irregular or regular wave pattern and many more.
Originally L3 Texture was designed as an extension to our L3 Deformer toolset. L3 Deformer makes heavy use of texture sampling and the more texture generators you have at your disposal, the more powerful and flexible L3 Deformer will be.
During the development process we decided to make L3 Texture a fully featured solution that also supports rendering of textures and can generate details way beyond the requirements of L3 Deformer. Please note, that L3 Texture contains Maya software renderer nodes only, but you can of course bake all textures to be used with any other renderer.
