Converting 3dMax OSL shader to Maya

Hi everybody,


I'm trying to build a crosshatch look to my renders using Arnold.

I recently found this Arnold OSL shader for max by Lee Griggs:

https://arnold-rendering.com/2020/03/31/ramdombitmap-osl-by-zap-andersson/

I copied the code to an OSL node in Maya and it doesn't seem to work properly.


Basically, I'm looking for a way to scatter a bunch of sketch textures at random positions and rotations on a surface and drive their color with a lambert utility node.

Having an alpha calculated for each texture is cool but even a multiplication operation will do the trick for me.


I would appreciate any advice ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks!

Nimrod

Thanks so much for answering!

I saw that tutorial but that's not quite the effect I'm looking for.

There's a c4d hatch shader that gets the work done but it doesn't calculate bounce lights and is generally kind of limited to 1-2 light sources before it breaks.

Also, there's this guy:

Who managed to get the effect with c++.


Figured there must be an easier way ๐Ÿ™‚


Thanks again,

You could try the randombitmap.osl shader.
