Join George Maestri for an in-depth discussion in this video Using displacement and bump mapping, part of Maya 2015 Essential Training.
…Bump and displacement mapping is a way to use…texture maps to change the surface of your object.…So, you can use them instead of modeling to get certain types of visual effects.…Let's take a look at bump mapping first.…I'm going to create a NURBS sphere.…And let's go ahead and apply a blend material to it.…So it's going to go under the rendering shelf, select blend material and apply it.…Now, if I go over to the blend tab on my object,…you'll see that under common material attributes we have one for bump mapping.…
Now this is the same for Lambert or Phong, as well as anistropic.…And they all have a bump mapping feature here.…So, if I click on this button, I can put a texture into my bump mapping node.…Now I can use anything from a file to a procedural texture.…I'm just going to use the same cloth texture we had before.…So when I select this, you'll see that I get my cloth texture, plus a bump 2D node.…And that is when it actually applies it as a bump map.…
Now, I'm not seeing it in my view port, but, if I make sure that…
