Can one combine normal maps with MR materials, such as Dialectric, DGS, and architectural materials? I know I can do it with the SSS shaders, as it has an normalCamera I can plug into, but thats all the luck I've had.
I've been exploring the JS_Normalmapper shader from Pixero, the bumpCombiner shader from CTRL Studios (I believe), and the lyrid_normal_map shaders as well, but to no real avail.
I know I can render default maya materials with normal maps in MR, but I'm trying to figure out if there are more options than that.
I would like to render out some still images of creatures/characters/vehicles etc, most likely rendering in passes to be composited (in Photoshop). Will things like ambient occlusion passes or Final Gather/GI occlude a surface and/or respond to it in accordance to the normal and/or bump map details?
I would sincerly appreciate and tips, links, explanations or what have you.
