Hi
if you want a normal map with Maya just plug a bump2d or bump3d to the Incadescence slot

Hi Achoury:

why you do not use the maya rendering \lighting and shading \Transfor maps tools ?
they want me to create a low car model but with diffuse and normal map for vieo game

the car would like this images

i mean does it very difficult to to get a good result ?
for modeling the car is not a problem for me but i never use the process of create normal map any suggestion or limination for create normal map?

Hi
Sorry I did not understand your question correctly, I thought you just wanted to create a normal pass in Maya for the relighting in compositing package!
So in maya you have to use a bump2d node or the facing ratio node to get normal pass
Other wise I do use the the transfer map tools to get normal map!
