Rotate grain of wood in material rendering

The problem that this feature will solve: the inability to control the direction of wood grain when rendering with materials

Expected outcomes: More realistic pattern for rendering by changing direction of wood along with aesthetic presentation to clients. The rendering settings for wood should include a slider that has angle/direction as the indicator for the wood grain orientation


I think a previous post from the team mentioned that this is on the todo list.

This is a feature which many people are hoping for. It was supposed to be released over 6 month ago (if no unexpected problems emerged). By now, I think it’s safe to assume that unexpected problems did emerge^^ I just wish we had some more information about the progress!


Yes, we’ve run into performance problems, that required more significant changes under the hood. We estimate that material orientation will be available in 5.310 or 5.320, in 5-7 weeks.
