Education : no28 'Normals advise for multiple element maps'

If you have different elements in your texture sheet, such as metal and wood, make sure to use the nvidia filter on elements individually. If you just desaturate a few diffuse layers and only use the filter once you will have the same nvidia filter scale for everything. When really wood and metal can require different scales to achieve the best results.

Right, am off to start playing GTA4 now. Might be a while till the next update ;)

Use Crazybump instead!

And enjoy GTA.

When I've used Crazybump it's just to effect an flat normal map isn't it? Not seperate elements? or is there some sort of layers feature in there that I didn't know of?
