Normap map disappears on shadows

Recommended Posts

Hi YouGroove, normal maps will not show anything if unlit . You will need to add a bit of AO in your texture to show a bit of depth it totally unlit.


What I do is generate an AO map (There are plenty of programs to do this in i.e xnormal, crazybump, Substance) add it as a top layer in your image editing software have the diffuse map as a first layer and the second layer the AO map set the blend mode of the AO map to 'multiply'. The dark values of the AO map will blend nicely into your diffuse map.

Here is an example of what I do in photoshop, (probably not the best due to it being mainly black and white but I thinks it's enough.
