About This Class

What is Texture Mapping? you may ask, well according Wiki:

"Texture mapping[1][2][3] is a method for defining high frequency detail, surface texture, or color information on a computer-generated graphic or 3D model. Its application to 3D graphics was pioneered by Edwin Catmull in 1974.[4]"

 zzzZZZ  sorry game designers!

But for us textile designers it's also a godsend!

Long before I learned how to use photoshop, I always imagined what my prints would look like on fashion apparel and homewares, I could sew, but the design process and utilising it, before digital, was very time consuming and daunting!

Skipping forward to the present digital age, textile designing has become so much easier with the integration of Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop into the textile design industry.        

The texture mapping techniques should be a part of every textile designers skill set.
