 Post Topic: POM not working?
PostPosted 09.07.2012, 01:44 
I don't think Parallax Occlusion mapping is working for me, as I did the tutorial on http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sd5Avnf_JuU, but it doesn't have the depth that has.

Show us some more details?


Did you apply the displacement Map in the alpha Channel? That was the mistake I made when I tried POM.

Try adding a brightness/contrast modifier to it in photoShop (prior to alpha channeling it) and turn the contrast all the way up.

That did it, thank you!

Also if you could me with this : viewtopic.php?f=326&t=94315

I think it's a technical problem but there could be something I'm missing

Save Displacement Maps as XX_displ.tif using DisplacementMap in CryTiff. The engine will auto use them as Displacement Maps for POM / Tessellation.

It was changed to this to save on performance rather than using the alpha channel. Now the engine will just use the _displ.tif file if it exists, so we're down to 3 channels (RGB) instead of 4 (+alpha)

Putting the heightmap in the alpha channel isn't the way to do it now. It's performance costly (ish).

Displacements Maps should be labeled XX_displ.tif
Normal Maps should be labeled XX_ddn.tif
Specular Maps should be labeled XX_spec.tif

and so on ...
