Hi. Having never used it, I know very little about SketchUp, but I am wondering if it can do something I cannot seem to do with Blender. Any help from experienced users would be a great help.
Here’s the challenge: I want to ‘project’ (I think that is the SketchUp term) a png (or other pixel format image) onto a surface and THEN (afterwards) deform that surface as if it were a piece of printed paper that had been crumpled.
I have seen videos showing that an image can be put onto a curved surface, and even that extrusions can then be made to that surface in a manner that just stretches pixels to make up the sides of the extrusion. This gives me hope. But of course, with a piece of crumpled paper, the material’s surface dimensional stability has to be respected, and so there should be minimal stretching of any pixels no matter how crumpled it gets.
Or is there another way to effectively create a folded and creased paper-like material where the graphic image still ‘sticks’ to the surface of the material?
Can anyone tell me if this sort of thing is possible with SketchUp. Many thanks in advance for all replies.
