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"

Issues with baked normal (3ds Max)


I have some issues using baked normal maps. I have been using UE4 for nearly two years and never had any big trouble with my normal baking pipeline. But since the switch to MikkT tangent base it just doesn't want to work at all. Any tougher gradient gives massive shading errors, no matter what I do. The only solution is to use hard edges with UV splits at higher degrees.

Baked a simple box, left side has soft edges, right side has hard edges. alt text

As you can see it is perfectly fine in Marmoset. (or at least perfectly usable)

Any idea what should I do? Is it not possible to bake normal maps in Max anymore?

Thanks, Fisher
