Diamond shape with a MAYA ramp
on Jan 26, 2007 at 9:07:09 pm

Hey,

I'm trying to force a ramp to create a diamond shape like this http://www.rit.edu/~accpph/images/cg/diamond_01.jpg . Of course I can get a box and rotate it 45 degrees. But I want to pinch two corners like in teh web link above. I get close with a sleight V wave value, but it's not perfect. Can I use a ramp. or many ramps to get a shape like the one in the web link, if yes, how?

Thanks.

ACC

Is there some reason you don't want to use a file texture?

Try the following settings with a Box Ramp or a Grid texture:

Rotate UV 45
Repeat UV 3, 1

Then set Rotate Frame to taste.

Hi:

Yeah my reason is control. Folks over at bluesky only use procedurals and I kinda wanted to see how far I could push it.
