Can somebody please explain what the difference is between the different maps - displacement maps, bump maps, etc?
Also, when are they meant to be used and how?

My boyfriend and I are learning to use vue with geeksatplay tutorials, and they are really good, and we've also started to use Crazy Bump, which is cool. However the use of all the different kinds of maps are quite confusing for people like us who are starting off.

Any help on Maps would be very much appreciated and welcomed. Thank you!
