Cycles displace mesh

Hiya,

Im trying to get the displacement working in the cycles output. However ive tried supplying a height map and various values with no luck.
Does this feature work? Does anyone have a simple example how I can setup a height map to displace my mesh?

Thanks

Displacement Methods are in Material tab, Settings > Surface

Take a look on this:


Just play with the Midlevel (to mantain the overall size) and the scale of the displacement. And of course, the amount of subdivision!

Don’t forget to enable Displacement method on material:

Thanks!
It was that last displacement under material settings that I was missing!
