Procedural textures are the textures that are provided by Maya... such as checker, grid, fractal, etc.

In my opinion, the best results are done by making textures yourself, either in Photoshop or some other image editor.

Although pixar would disagree with you there mike! Every texture in those films is procedural apart from any decals etc that must be handpainted. It's horses for courses in the debate over procedural vs painted

http://www.alanwoods.co.uk/personalresearch/ look at that link and it will show you a report I had to do at uni about procedurals vs painted

my experience is mostly in game development. Procedurals are a rarity there.
