So there are two ways of making a material?


#1

Hi folks, I am starting 3d and what I found that you can generate material, or you can use a photo,

right ?

what are the main differences if there are any ?


#2

an image remains a 2d object, that you can move, scale, rotate like any other 2d face…

a material is more like paint and can be applied to any shaped surface, not just 2d faces…

so material is way more valuable than image, if you want to “paint” objects , right ?
