mapzone lava heightmap diffuse node tutorial map step gradient
This tutorial will guide you through the creation of a complete "Lava stream" material using MaPZone 2.5. First of all, here is what you need to know before getting started. For this tutorial, I'll assume you already looked at the interface and the presets that come with MaPZone. The tutorial is quite detailed but I encourage you to experiment with your own settings and find what you like best once you understand how the tool works.
The "T" on top of some nodes indicates a transformation. You can access the transformation panel by double-clicking on the white triangle on top of each node. The Scale informations given on the pictures of this tutorial indicates what transformation should be applied to the node.
The HSL Shift node allows us to saturate the beige rock color only in the streams using our heightmap as a mask.
