Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Matterial normalmap creating shadow problems?

I get this weird error with my normal map plugged in, but not without it being plugged in. It seems to restrict lighting from one direction, making it shadows or something.

Is your normal map texture set to normal map for compression, and have you tried flipping the y channel? when you set it to normal map compression it will uncheck the rgb box.

it seems to work now. apparently if you have a non normal map set as default normal map in a parameter in an instanced material it will bug out
