Making a Decal Texture in 3DS Max

using the Blend Material

If all you want is different diffuse maps (and/or different bump maps .etc) to show in the decal just put a 'mix' map in the diffuse slot of a standard material then add a the black and white decal to the mix map slot, then what ever is white takes whatever is in the white slot and vice versa. Heres an example mix map: And here is a render:

In the above image I have a cellular map in the white slot of the mix map and a green flat colour in the black slot. If you physically want two different materials in each part (not just two different diffuse maps) then Id use a blend material. It works the same as the mix map but combines actual materials rather than maps. This way, you can have things like a Raytrace material for the lettering and an InknPaint material for the box for instance. You can even use blend materials within other blend materials so the letters or shapes are all individual material types, if thats what you want. In the example below the box is Ink'n'Paint, the circle is a second blend map containing a word mix (Blend Map 2) between a standard red material and a very reflective Raytrace material Blend Map 1
