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"

Does Object Space Normals Bypass Vertex Lighting?

Just a simple question. I was experimenting and learning the uses of Object Space Normals versus the more appropriated Tangent Space technique, and got curious about if when using Object Space does it override vertex lighting entirely and use the pixel color of the texture to decide lighting? If that is what is happening, how expensive is it to render objects that way? If I understand it vertex lighting is standard in game rendering because its the cheapest way to determine light values.

Just want to make sure I'm understanding how Object Space interprets lighting.
