Normal Maps
« on: March 21, 2013, 04:26:25 PM »
Hi

I scatter some objects with normal maps, but the normal maps don´t render at all in the scattered objects.
Is this a bug or are normal maps not supported?
Just asking, because i can´t find any information on this one.

I´m using Vray 2.40 and Forest Pro 4.0.1.

Thanks for you help.

Gerald

This is a limitation of the Max normal map in VRay. It doesn't work well with proxies and instanced objects.

Just use VRayNormalMap instead, that should solve the problem.
