Yes you can create your own materials. It might be good to start with an existing one and modify this to your needs.

It might be good too to have a look into the manual that comes with your Vue, I am sure it is helpful for the things you are looking for.

Re: VUE Complete 2016 making your own materials can I ?

I just wanted to add something to this. I make many of my own from purchased seamless textures. Many times the textures are not in the format I want them in but I convert them into Bitmap textures and save then in the Bitmaps folder in Vue. I will load a cube or some other primitive and apply the bitmap to the cube. Then I make any adjustments I may wish and then save the new textures in my materials.
Sometimes I will make a bump map to go with it.
The way I have done this is by loading the texture into a photoshop program, Turn it into a grayscale and then into a negative.
I think I read somewhere that there is a way to create bump maps in Vue but I don't know how to do it that way. I could be wrong about that. Just not sure.
Anyway, Just thought I should give my 2 cents worth about textures In Vue.
Maybe this info might be helpful 8)

Of course it is possible to do bump mapping in Vue. Just go to the related tab in the (advanced) material editor, or select the bump channel in the simple material editor.

It might be worth to read the manual one day, it is not that bad. You get it by typing F1 inside of Vue.

Thanks Walther,
I actually printed out the entire Vue Manual, Took a large 3 ring binder to place it in. There is a lot to read. I will read up on how to make Bump maps in Vue. Would be easer than having to open up a photoshop program. I actually love making textures for Vue and have come up with some good ones. Thanks Again. :wink:
