Hi UnSa

Kind of confused by your question. I downloaded your file and opened it in C4D. It is a B&W bear on a plane. What do you want to do to it? I see that you have loaded the same image in the Bump channel. It is working there but the image is very small - only 100x100 so the results are very pixilated. If you want to add dimension to it, you could try using the image as a displacement map rather than a bump map.

Try this:

Plane height and width segemented to 100 segments each (You need high segmentation for displacement)
The bear image placed in the Displacement channel with strength set to 100% and height set to 10 cm.
Hope this helps - if not - try explaining what you want a bit more.

Thanks for posting but put it in the general area. This area is for resources only, not questions.
