Did you ever have just one single texture and had to make a photorealistic 3D material from it? Are you trying to make this look less flat, have more depth and react to light in a realistic way?

For me it was very often the case: I received a wood texture from a manufacturer and nothing else: no glossiness maps, no normal maps, no scanned materials. And my clients wanted to see their products shine and look the best!

So I came up with a simple workflow to make wood look great even if I only had one texture!

Get this ready-to-use shader, plug in your texture and start tweaking the individual parts so that your wood material can make your clients and yourself happy!
