The texture matrix object allows you to define how a texture will appear in an material. It can be used to manipulate still (fixed) textures as well as animated ones.

Code

textureMatrix
name example_texmat
scale 0.0 0.0 1.0 1.0
spin 0.0
shift 0.0 0.0
center 0.5 0.5 
fixedscale 0.0 0.0
fixedspin 0.0
fixedshift 0.0 0.0
end

Texture Matrix must be used in conjunction with the Material object using texmat. valid parameters for a Material are:

name name for reference
scale u/v freqs, u/v scales
spin rotation freq
shift u/v freqs
center dynamic u/v center (for spin and scale)
fixedscale time invariant u/v scale
fixedspin time invariant rotation
fixedshift time invariant u/v shift


Examples

Texture Matrix is often used to create the appearance of flowing water or lava with the "shift" argument.
