Using Procedural Textures in Blender

In this video, we'll look at how to create a custom node group and store it in Blender for use in future projects.

This tutorial also discussed the paid Node 2 Code add-on, but this is not required to achieve the effect.


  1. I love procedural textures. I was an ace at it in the 2000s with 3d studio but have found blenders way of doing things hard to get my head around. I will watch every procedural texture tutorial you do. this one was great as I was building a mad max style motor bike and had been fooling with the same effect my self

  2. Quick questions for anyone: has performance of Blender prcedural textures increased? I used them for an interior scene I did a while back and couldn't figure out why it was rendering so slowly. Then I read that procedurals (at least for big scenes with lots of them) slowed things down a lot. Baked them all into high res image maps and it increased performance considerably. Curious if this is still the case. Thanks for the tutorial, watching it now!
