MNPR offers 11 different substrates to choose from featuring various surface profiles:
- Rough paper
- Hot-press paper
- Cold-press paper
- Ingress paper
The substrate data has been obtained from 2400dpi scans, whose profile was extracted using a shape-from-shading technique to acquire the UV inclinations and height map.
The raw data of the scans and lossless seamless textures can be found at NTU's data repository. A small tutorial on how to extract and acquire your own data can be found here.
Downloading the substrates from within MNPR is straightforward.
- Right click on the MNPR shelf button (the first button from the left in the MNPR shelf)
