    Hey Jack,

    Do you have access to Photoshop?

    There are a number of way to do this with various programs. As I'm sure Fashmir was hinting at there, Photoshop seems to be the program most people turn to for this, because of the handy "offset" filter which handles some/most of the dirty work. A tutorial for this can be found here:

    http://www.multimedialibrary.com/Dia.../howtotile.asp

    But for those of you who do not have access to Photoshop and would like to make your grain tiles in ArtRage, it is possible (and not to difficult). To demonstrate, I've made this video tutorial:

    Someonesane- Well done! Thanks for showing your method using ArtRage. This community can use more of this kind of information. It's all too easy for me to always jump back into my "standard" tools, not thinking of ways to do it right in the package we all have. Very good tutorial.

    Thanks Fashmir. I have made a few of them so far for other threads, and will probably be making some more as other questions pop up in the forums here.

    Someonesane....Thanks for that information I will find that very useful...

    Fashmir thanks for you input there,I have an old Paint shop pro 8,but dont have access to Photoshop,I dont like big programs with hundreds of brush types and sizes,and loads of gizmos like Painter for instance.... I dont use Paintshop unless I cant do a drop shadow right in Artrage, the only programs I use these days are Artrage and PhotoFiltre,I dont seem to need anything else,and now with the bigger post sizes I can do more detailed stuff, which suits me down to the ground, thanks for coming back on this mate appreciated.... Jack.

    Question

    Thank you for the tutorials but I am unable to do a good grain, probably because of the eraser.
    I show to you my results , perhaps someone can do better?!

    "Gessoed Canvas" is the texture that I find it with another soft and want to us it in Artrage
    g_layer 0 is the selection of 300x300 on that texture
    g_layer 1 is the 4 merged layers (the one with the lines inside)
    g_layer 2 is my final layer , the canvas grain
    f20
    is the canvas that I made with g_layer_2,
    as you can see is not a very uniform canvas; it can be good for something but is no good in general .
    Any help or any advise are welcome.

    You can also use ZBrush to make seamless textures, but hey it is an EXPENSIVE proggie if only what you want to do is make seamless textures!
