When outputting from “Out Alpha” (on file node) to “Displacement” (on displacement node) the result is a larger sphere or cube when scaled big enough. Meaning the displacement is not working, just making the sphere larger.
When outputting from “Out Color R or G or B” (on file node) to “Displacement” (on displacement node) the displacement appears to work correctly.
Is it perfectly fine to leave the output from “Out Color R / G / B”? Why doesn’t it work when using “Out Alpha”?
FYI: My texture is just a standard free texture off textures . com My color space is set to Raw (even though it doesn’t seem to change much, except make the displacements slightly larger.)
