3D Imaging Rendering Using Gimp and Mathmap

Create 3D Metallic Spheres in Gimp


Gimp comes with a powerful set of 3D object renders, but the Mathmap plugin can be used to add extra functionality.

In this video a metallic texture is used to create textured spheres which are then coloured using the colourize function.

Mathmap has an extremely good preview function for 3D mapping and this makes it easy to select the best aspect for your final image.
