I was experimenting with MindTex and the demo of CrazyBump, and I’ve generated two normal maps:
This one was the Crazybump one:
And this was the render:
Then I switched to the MindTex program and I’ve generated this map:
which is really bad compared to the CrazyBump one: this is sharper and less good-looking
So I’ve played with the sliders and got this:
and I’ve applied to the same plane, but the result is still bad if we compare it to the CrazyBump one:
My question is: how can I get the same result? Have I misunderstood something with MindTex or it just has some settings which are messed up?
If I compare the two images, I can see that the CrazyBump image bricks point in a different way and these seem to point in the opposite one (it is really visible if you switch from one render to the other one with a program such as GIMP: layering them and then make the upper one invisible and visible again)…
Thanks a lot!!
