Curvature map for hipoly model

How can I create a curvature map for a hipoly model? Do I need a lowpol model for this?

What software (3d and renderer) are you using?

3ds max and Vray mainly. Could be mental ray as well, if possible for those needs.

Here's the technique I use: http://www.neilblevins.com/cg_educa...ex_map_wear.htm Wish there was a built in curvature map, but this technique works in a pinch.

Thank you. Just curious, if you use smoothing groups for fast smoothing results in turbosmooth? It works really well.
