Marius Oberholster Hey! I'm having an incredible learning experience, not only learning how Blender works (yes, still learning), but also about Open-Source and the incredible software available. Stick around!

Flag tutorial

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Thursday, July 12, 2012 Under: Tutorials
I know there are a few out there that show you how to do a flag with procedural textures, but I wanted to take it a step further and do the whole flag (including the side with the rope and two holes) with procedural textures only. And this is the result:

I know as a South African citizen you may be thinking "Why in the world would he make a French flag instead", because I am learning French and it was the first flag that came to mind. After showing my brother this render, he asked me why I didn't do the SA flag, so he sort of issued me with a challenge to make it using procedural textures and although I didn't use the official shades of the colors, I did get the shape fairly close using only the Blend texture (and of course a whole bunch of transform nodes):

I plan to include both flags in the final tutorial, but the final results will vary as it is a step-by-step redo of the whole thing and this time it'll hopefully be much much better (^^,).

Oh, before I forget, these two have no cloth or soft-body simulations applied. Which is the goal of the tutorial. I found that whenever I try to do even a low poly cloth, that Blender freezes, because the info is too much to calculate (with forcefields, not so much without) and this is a way to overcome that obstacle for people who don't have the latest and the greatest (^^,).

Have a great day everyone!!!

Thank YOU!!!!!!!

"For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen."
