What is MaPZone?
MaPZone is simply the most advanced texturing tool ever
MaPZone is only intended to be used for producing high quality textures,
and this is what it does best. Based on a unique and patented
technology called the FX Maps, MaPZone is the only procedural tool giving you
that much control over your creation.
As texture construction paradigm, MaPZone is based on a
to build up and mix textures step by step.
It's like using Photoshop, but where you could visualize each step and
the links between steps, and where you would never loose anything in the
in-between. No more history losses.
No other tool clearly focuses on maps, although maps are the core
components of any texture... So maps are the main focus of
. And your diffuse, specular and normal maps created
with MaPZone match perfectly. And because it is non linear and all
related to each other, if you modify the diffuse, all the other maps
will sync up automatically!
All the maps you will produce with MaPZone will
. It's a natural benefit of procedural
textures, but that's only an option, so you can get non tiling textures
if you prefer. The maps will be resolution independent too
. Another classic benefit of procedural techniques. So work at
a decent resolution, resize when you're done, you've got a higher
resolution texture in a snap.
Fine tune your texture: you don't like the position of that knot
in your wood texture? Grab it and move it, resize it, stretch it, etc.
All this fine local editing will be echoed organically within the
texture. No need to repaint, fake, hide. MaPZone is the only
tool allowing you to locally edit procedural textures
To see what you mean, MaPZone comes with a highly
versatile real-time 3D previewer
: load your own 3D object and
directly see your maps feeding a parallax mapping shader applied onto
it. This looks generally more than real, no need to make any tedious
rendering here: it's real time. Don't like our shaders? Load your own.
Visualize, don't wait!
A huge library of preset textures
MaPZone for free, so go ahead, browse them, use them, use only parts of
them in your compositions. They are the chemical elements necessary to
the apparition of life.
