This filter is originaly (excellently) done by Mike Blackney.. All credits go to him. I only added height smoothing (something similat to what CrazyBump is doing) and switching L/R, T/B since it's sometimes necessary..______ Mike Blackney original description ______Create extremely high quality, high and low frequency normal maps using the new Derivative component.This snippet shows how to compute your blue channel from your red and green, and gives a one-pass normal.


Games, texturing, normal, map, normals, snippet.
