View Full Version : Viewing Bitmaps on Mesh?

02 February 2004, 07:29 AM
Can anyone please tell me how in the Heck do you View your BUMP map texture on the model without having to assign it to the Color node?

there HAS to be a better way to do this.. is there some little tiny freakin checkbox or toggle somewhere that I am missing.

And yes I have done a search on this.. and looking through the Maya manuals has done nothing for me..

Help me before I quit 3D and become a Monk:cry:

Select your shader and open up the attribute editor. Go down to Hardware Texturing. The dropdown there called Textured Channel is the one you want. Select Bump and your bump map will be displayed in Hardware Texture mode (the 6 key).
