Author Topic: the new filter sorta works  (Read 1031 times)

Hey there guys.

So I tried the new filter fx mat edge wear. When set to Height it doesnt do anything.
It works with normal maps however. AO doesnt seem to do much for me either inside this filter.

Last week I followed the tutorial by Wes on youtube about creating a filter like this from scratch and it seemed to work better.

Maybe something was mis connected? or I am missing something?

I tried cranking up the curvature, grunge, ao, nothing. When set to height nothing works.

Hi Martin,

For the height, you need to paint height information. on the paintable layer you have the filter set to height, add a height channel and paint some height detail.

Please check this latest video. In this stream I demo both modes.
