Essentially I just want to translate a checker texture to the side a little bit.

Is there a way to do this in a cycles material?


First you must provide texture coordinates to the texture node, something like Object or Generated should do.

Then you can use a Vector Mapping node to add or subtract values.

    $\begingroup$ Vector Math works ok for translations, and MixRGB also; just set the operation to 'ADD' and use the second input as the translation vector. $\endgroup$ – Secrop Feb 27 '17 at 20:29
  • $\begingroup$ Yes they probably do, good thing cycles is such a well though out and flexible render engine with an incredibly modular and ingenious node system $\endgroup$ – Duarte Farrajota Ramos Feb 28 '17 at 0:20
