View Full Version : The unlit part of an object - I want a texture there instead!

12 December 2012, 08:00 PM
So I'm doing the Earth in Maya. It's going just fine until I have to do the nightlights. The part of the globe that's facing away from the sun, that is not lit, I want a texture to appear on that part, so that the nightlights are showing instead of just a black area.

My question: how do I do that!?

It's a bit tricky, and I have searched on the web for some help, but haven't found anything. Thanks in advance!

Map a texture to the "additional color" of the mia_material
