Software used:

This is the final model after tweaking the parameters a bit in the RailClone settings. Everything else was set as default (Fig.04 - 05).

Fig. 04

Fig. 05

After I had done this I converted the Railclone geometry into an editable poly object. Then, using the Unique Material ID free plugin, I gave the floor and ramp objects different IDs automatically. Each marble unit (element) had a different ID now. This made the marble material (multi-texture plugin) work perfectly once it was applied to the poly object.


Next I want to talk about the V-Ray dirt present on the edge of most of the wood materials. I will focus on the darker wood. Take a look at the detailing in Fig.06 - 07. As you can see, over the diffuse map there is a darker, thin edge with a few subtle differences on it. That is generated by V-Ray dirt with noise inside the diffuse channel. It's a little detail that can make the difference, especially in close-ups.
