View Full Version : Paint Texture tool question

I have a question about the paint texture tool

Is there a way I can lets say, paint the bump and then somehow have it still be visible so that I can paint the diffuse area on top of it, and to still see my bump until i paint over it?

not sure if I can help here..but what software are you using ?

in photoshop you could use the bump you did on a layer in multiply ..and on another layer paint on top of both layers as a different files..

ok ..I dont think you can paint that straight in Maya if its what you meant ,,, but Deep Paint does that.,., its compatible Maya and the demo is free to download..

I can paint textures straight on in maya using the paint texture tool.

btw can anyone tell me what resolution a high quality texture should be? I mean what size? you cant affect the dpi can you?

Well, unfortunately, I know NOTHING about texturing in Maya :p
But with regards to texture size - DPI doesn't really count, as computers and TVs only display in 72dpi anyway. Actually, monitors and TVs display in lines.... but you get the idea.
