View Full Version : using text as bump with mia in 8.5

05 May 2008, 02:49 PM
Hey guys. I'm hoping someone can shed some light on my situation. I'm trying to use an image with text in it as a bump map with a mia material in 8.5.

Just to let you know I am using the misss_setnormal to connect the bump to the mia material. I've tried using a procedural texture and everything works fine. I've tried it in 2008 and it works. I've even tried a simple white image with a black line on it and that worked.

The outalpha is connect to the bump value and alpha is luminance is turned on.

I've also tried running the image through a rgb to luminance node and then to the bump node and still no luck.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I've attached a screen grab of the texture, my network and the attribute editor.
