4. Textures and Materials
This is the part where you can apply interesting properties to the surface and interior of the 3D objects
created. In Art of Illusion, textures refer to the surface properties of the objects and
materials are the properties of the inside of the objects. Art of Illusion has a powerful set of tools
for texture/material creation which are described in this chapter. See also the tutorial on this subject on
the Art of Illusion website (www.artofillusion.org).
