Clipping tab

Clipping is a procedure that 'cuts' parts of the material based on a given texture. White / bright areas of the texture are kept while black ones are cut.

  • Texture: Select the image that will be used as clipping map
  • Soft clipping (Default): The soft option respects the alpha channel of an image and will use all the grey values to clip the material
  • Hard clipping: Combined with the threshold parameter, it is possible to select which parts of the image will be used to clip the material
  • Threshold: Setting the percentage very low, only total and some very dark ones will be 'cut'. Increasing it, brighter areas will be used for clipping. Setting the percentage to 100%, the whole material will be clipped, as even the total white areas will be considered as points of clipping
