rope tut

i did the rope tut with a displacement map and
i can see in texture mode the displacement in viewport

but when you render you almost don’t see anything
but after increasing the mid level and strenght for displacement i was able to begin to see it

is it normal that what you see in viewport is not the same then when you render ?


I think your problem is this. For displacement to work on fine details you need a lot of verts. Your displacement modiifer is coming after the subsurf in the stack, which is correct, but you have level 4 subdivisions for viewport and 2 for render – change render to 4. Usually I have it the other way around, lower for viewport and higher for render, to speed things up.

yup right this subsurf has different resol for viewport and render

and render was too low !
