  • Hi all!

    I am modeling a stone countertop that has beautiful sparkling throughout it, and I am wondering if there's a way to model that. In real life, you can see these sparkles in the stone, but grabbing a picture online they aren't visible, and therefore aren't showing up in my model either. Anyone have any tips? Thanks!

  • After effects is your best bet. You're either going to have to find the texture you are looking for and video edit in the sparkles to create a combined video texture(.mp4) or edit the video after. Either way there is no native way to do that in Enscape. You can try to apply a roughness map but that will only add a sheen to it, not a a sparkle.
