Default Rotating a Texture without effecting the rest

Hi all.
I have this table that I'm rendering. There are no lights atm, just trying to get the wood grain down to start.
As you can see, the top is correct and so are the shelves.
My issue is with the sides. I need to rotate the texture 90 so its up and down. But every time I do that, it changes all of it.
I do have a different blinn for the top and the sides but the wood texture is the same for them all.
What am I doing wrong?

Scott

search for something called UVs. they are the coordinates for the textures placement.

Thanks Hammer.
Trying to get this to work and then improve it as much as I possible can. This is all new territory for me.
And to top it off, this is for a guy I do woodworking drawings for that wants to add this to his website.
Pressure is incredible. :headbang:

Ok. Got the doors and the rest of the table textured.
Got a light there too.
Now to make it look more real.

Any ideas?




Thank you so much so far.


Scott

PS. Walls can be changed and so can the floor. Again this is more first time. The guy wants it to look like it fits into a room so if I need to put more furniture in or even a pic of a room would work... let me know.

You should bevel some of the edges to make it look more natural.

Actually if it is a sheet of veneer plywood, there wouldn't be any bevel of any kind just square edges.
But thank you.

I guess you're having fun with UVs because its new to you but I personally hate the suckers lol. Even if its a teeny tiny bit of a bevel it will make a world of difference in cutting back that "CG" look. I think the shaders need to be tweaked some, right now they're more on the ambiguous side. Plus the repeat on the floor texture may be too high. The renderer you're using plays a big part in your approach to lighting and you never did say.


Hey I should add that to my FAQ :nod:

How real do you want it too look?

As you won't get far without a decent lighting setup for aspects like self shadowing, specularity and lots more fun things to explore.

Cheers,
Chris
