Normal maps
« on: June 27, 2008, 05:52:28 pm »

Does Anim8or support normal maps? If not is there any plans in the future? Normals would help out a lot. I know Anim8or has Bump maps, but Normals have a more profound bump mapping technique.

Anim8or requires an heightmap from the user for bumpmapping,but as soon as
it's loaded,the heightmap is converted in a normalmap used for rendering .
