Combining bump and normals

Postby chrisclinejax » Fri Jul 08, 2016 12:19 pm

Can anyone explain the proper procedure for using both normal maps and bump maps on a figure?

Thank you,
One question I should have added is does it make a difference whether the order is bump+normal or normal+bump.

Yes it does. The bump map must be first.

Thanks Marcel. Just for clarification. I thought the following were also required to make Bump+Normal work together:

- Set the amount for Texture A to 0.0008
- Set the amount for Texture B to 1.0
- Set the function to Add

Maybe things have changed?

Cheers,
Lyne

Your formula is correct.
