Here’s my problem: I have a texture color map, what I’d like to do is create a complete set from this color map (set: color map, bump map, normal map, specular map, and maybe a mask) However I’m completly in the dark about how to do this. I know bump maps are grayscale images however I’m not getting the results I’m looking for when converting to greyscale and I have no idea about how to make a specular map. I’ve got the normal map down (thanks to the gimp :D) but the others are giving me real trouble. Does anyone know the precise method that’s used to create these? Or better yet is there some sort of converter or generator that can do it? (you’d think there would be in all these years of texture creation).
Any help would be appreciated.
oh and btw if this doesn’t belong here could a moderator please move it to the proper place? thanks.
