Problems with normal maps displaying correctly.


I am getting weird seams in my normal map. This is just a basic trim baked down into a tilable trim texture which I then projected on my low poly window model.

I've done this before in Softimage. I'm not sure why it is giving me a problem now.

The only thing I did was play with the Discontinuity angle in geo approximation. But i tried all the settings under that tab and it still gives me seams.

The screenshot will show the result and set up.

I used Ultimapper.

I'm getting this seam at each of the four corners. But there is no actualy seam in my normal map!

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
