Hey Guys n Gals;

...Is it possible (sure I saw Dave King do this one time) to paint into the bump channel (or Specular, or any other channel) to render bumps via Vertex Painting??? I can get Diffuse to work fine, but not anything else...

cheers
Ivon

OK. Advice from a rather bright max user colleague says DISPLACEMENT map channel = Good, Bump channel = Bad...not work with Vertex Paint. The other material channels seem OK as well.

Must be cos Bumps are Rendertime only affect, and games dont render so it'd be a waste of time! Perhaps.

Im pretty sure you could do it if you really wanted to but just seems like it would take more time and not really be flexible.Then again im just a fan of good ole Photoshop texture painting.

Great souls have will,,,weak ones have wishes.
