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"

Using Ambient Occlusion Map With Layered Material

Hey guys!

I recently started tinkering around with material functions and layered materials. My dilemma is I'm having a hard time figuring out how to add in my ambient occlusion map into my material.

I added a screenshot to show the setup I have. I have 5 material functions that I'm blending together and controlling with masks. How can I include my AO texture map into my material without disturbing the masking and blending? Is there a "Insert AO Map Here" node somewhere? Thanks in advance.

Oh wow! Thank you for the quick reply, Lucas. You gave me a two for one answer. Adding in the normal map would have been my next question. I'll try adding both maps and post back. Thanks a bunch!

I tested it out and it works great! Both my AO and normal maps have been added in. Thanks again for your help Lucas! You're awesome :)
