Join Chad Perkins for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating bumps with normal maps, part of Element 3D Essential Training (2013).
In this more advanced tutorial, we are going to take a look at how to create a…displaced surface like we are seeing on the face of this ogre.…Usually we could paint texture like that in but it just doesn't look the same.…If we can have this normal bump map as it's called, it can help the surface…appear like it's really got a lot of fine details and texture to it.…Now, this is little bit more of an advance concept.…You will need 3D skills to do this, in our case here, this 3D model has this…normal map, and this is not something that you paint in Photoshop that you…can create from scratch on your own, it needs to be generated by your 3D application.…
So, we are going to be using this map to tell Element where to displace the…surface of this ogre's face.…I will go to the Normal Map START, the composition here and you will notice…--here is something interesting--here a little extra tip along the way is that we…don't have any images in our composition, and yet there is an image for the…texture of this ogre's face.…
