View Full Version : 3ds max: normal map seam problem

I'm making a quick sledgehammer for the mini game art challenge this week, experimenting and learning about basic normal map workflow.
I'm having a problem with seams appearing where the UVs are welded and the diffuse/normal textures are seamless. What gives? This is only really obvious in close quarters, but there should be _no_ seams, right?
Here's an image of the head of the hammer to show what I mean. The stretching in the UVs has since been fixed, but the seams persist. Any and all tips are appreciated!

Using just one smoothing group on the low-poly? Are you using Edge Padding in RTT?
