Basic guide for textures map types | Yanko Stefanov

Different Texture Types with Examples

Hello Guys,
I ‘ve made a very basic guide for the different texture map types.

I believe that, this article could be useful for a lot of people out there who are just confused with the huge variety of different texture types and their unique purposes in 3D
Texturing it’s a huge topic so I am not aiming to educate you for each single aspect of the certain texture type.
Just giving a basic guide and simple examples on where those textures are being used and their purpose.

Textures types included inside:
-Diffuse/Albedo
-Specular
-Displacement
-Ambient Occlusion
-Normals

-Curvature
-Cavity
-Roughness/Gloss
-Anisotropy
-Metallic
-Thickness

-Transparency/Opacity
-Emissive/Glow/Illumination
-Subsurface Scattering

I haven’t included all texture types, there are more out there.
Hope it helps!
