Author Topic: vector map or a rotation map from baked map  (Read 81 times)

Hi

Is it possible to generate a vector map or a rotation map to have a direction in the tile sampler from a world space normal or else ? I try to make a fur generator and I would like to have a flow more natural than the triplanar position.
For now, I tried to have a rotation map from the ambient occlusion to know where is the up and down.

Thx :)

Hi,

You can use the "world direction map" baker and set the vector direction using the x, y, z values (a direction toward the ground should be 0, -1, 0.

But this will give you a uniform vector for the whole mesh. There is no automatic way to define a natural directory around the mesh features.
