Hi all.

I've just started building Lightwave again after using Maya for two years, I forgot how damn good it is! Anyway, I am building a mountian bike which is to be comped into a photographic background, and it needs to be almost photorealistic. I have everything sorted, but can't figure out how to get a carbon fibre, carbon/kevlar weave look. Anyone know how I can achieve this, without resorting to modelling every strand!

Any helps would be appreciated.

Larky.

i know painter had some cool weaves and textures you could apply as surface and bump maps
