Does anybody out there know how to create a convincing brick texture using the LW brick procedural, i.e. adding variation in brick colour and texture? Also when resizing the brick procedural the mortar scales unequally...thin horizontal mortar and wide vertical mortar, any fixes or advice.

IFW has the best procedurals for brick that I've found (either IFW textures or VisualTexture) -- not free, but certainly worth the money. They don't always play well with cubic mapping, but there are workarounds for that.

LOL, I did not even know they had more than one web address.
One thing that took me awhile to figure out with this program. Is when you select a brick texture, you can click on individual bricks to change just that one brick. And I thought it was cool changing the whole image.
This is an awesome program for bricks.

Great find. Amazing what you can get out of this program. This and WoodWorkshop are two of my favorite discoveries lately. Real timesavers.

Yeah. Its a great wood texture generator with a lot of options. All kinds of patterns, cuts bevels, etc.

Yes, don't pass up Map Zone from Allegorithmic its a free texture program that is a photoshop plug in. I have tried this with Corel Photo shop and Micrografx Picture Publisher 8 and the plug in works with both of those even though they don't list them programs as compatabable.
I beleive the Big brother map zone (commercial version) is now available as well.
