are there any lightwave users playing with the NormalMapCreate plugin , i can get a nmap from the mesh no problem but going thru the tuts i just cant figure out how the BumpMapCreate part works

i either get a black screen or a BumpMap that doesnt fit the low poly version

any one come across an easy Tutorial

#edit: may have found the solution with UVinfector used to align high poly uv to low poly uv

I use the normalmap plugin often at work, but have not tried the bumpmap - instead I use the Nvidia plugin for photoshop if I need to add "bumpmap" style stuff to my normalmaps. After having the greyscale bumpmap I just run it through the Nvidia plugin and "overlay" the layer on top of the base normalmap in PhotoShop.

ummm i should get hold of photoshop instead of using paintshop (which i hate)

i think im going to end up just greyscaling the Nmap and sticking it on the bump channel at this rate
