texture mapping

Last updated: April 30, 2020

Process of applying detail to a surface without explicitly modeling it as part of the geometry of the surface. This process can be either a standard lookup into an image texture map or a function call to compute a value algorithmically. The resulting value can be used either as a pixel color value (as in a pattern map) or as a perturbed surface normal (as in a bump map).
