I've been intending to post a couple things here, but my "intentions" to improve them before posting have resulted in me posting nothing.  So even though I still have a couple things I intend to do to "finish" them, I finally decided to share them anyway.

First, I present to you...  Toilet paper.
Okay, go ahead and laugh.  It's funny, but only until you run out.  Then we'll see how funny you think it is.

I am convinced in addition to lighting and a couple other items, one of the big contributors to iClone rendering looking like they came from iClone is TEXTURES.

Here is a toilet paper roll holder, with TP on it, modeled in Blender by my young son.  It's not bad, and this is where a lot of iClone props stop.
https://forum.reallusion.com/uploads/images/82e371a1-6fc6-4061-ab18-8af0.jpg


I had some fun in Substance Designer, and created three substances:
1) A custom "dust" material where I have adjustable sliders for the amount and opacity of the dust, how far it spreads, how it collects in the recesses, and also the color and roughness of the metal.  Dust?  Surely I am not the only person whose brand of TP lets a few fibers float away and make a light layer of dust on the holder.  (TMI?)
2) A "toilet paper print" pattern, including a couple of parameters such as the "lumpiness" of the overall surface.
3) A "concentric circles" substance, suitable for the ends of the toilet paper roll, also usable on paper towels, gift wrap, or even disk brake rotors.  I have several parameters for that, too, including the intensity of the rings and a warping factor so it's not all perfectly circular.
https://forum.reallusion.com/uploads/images/5df5bbaa-f48c-4d23-9161-dd20.jpg
(Normally this would not be used in the middle of an outdoor patio.)

This model does not have the cardboard tube painted in it.  It is a trivial thing, but needs to be added to the model in Blender.  And the model should be re-unwrapped to, rather than just using the automated default unwrapping.  I never seem to get around to doing it, but as you can tell I finally decided to post my picture anyway.

I also created my first-ever "morph" in iClone, so I have a morph slider to adjust how much paper is left,  from this "full roll" down to about "1/4 remaining."  It would be fun to also have a separate "empty cardboard tube" which could also be removed, leaving only the empty holder.




I was telling a coworker about this, and then we started looking at a roll of paper towels on the lunch table.  That inspired me to try my hand at that, so I made a paper towel substance.  I was actually very pleased with how the "fine fibers" turned out.  I think it made the paper look soft and plush, and hopefully very absorbent.

If you zoom in on this picture, you'll see what I mean about the soft, fuzzy texture.

I've been working on some terry cloth towels too, with customizable monograms, but I'll save them for another day.

LOL.  (And "thanks.")

I might have shared this confession before, but before I made the Substance, I tried scanning some toilet paper.  (Yes, "clean.")  I have to say, you know you have a strange hobby when you find yourself putting toilet paper on your scanner.

ROFLMAO @ your toilet paper jokes, but crikey, what a great job!...
I especially love that 3rd texture of the paper towelling in the last pic. 
That would look great on a teddy bear!

Looking forward to seeing your toweling texture. 
well done!

Thanks for the happy comments, Tarampa.

Here is a picture of my concentric circles with the adjustable "warp" applied:
https://forum.reallusion.com/uploads/images/c8c9f447-fc24-4f6b-9b32-8cc6.jpg




As long as I'm sharing semi-completed works, here is a sample of my towel.  At one point I had a version I really liked, then I regressed, so "some day" I'm going to have to revisit my older revisions of the substance and combine the best of all that I like.
https://forum.reallusion.com/uploads/images/f206062a-51d6-4a24-a8f8-9320.jpg

The "body" is my towel substance (the arms are someone else's material I applied while playing in Substance Painter).  You can see I made a "band" too, since a lot of towels have that shorter-looped band that goes across near the ends of the towel.

I learned that iClone does not support the "Text input" variable, so I had to complicate my substance by creating a "pick list" of monograms (A-Z, His, and Hers).  I need to write that up in Feedback Tracker one of these days.

Good pun, Peter.
I was afraid my substance would be the butt of all jokes.
