How can I rotate a displacement map?

Recommended Posts

I have a bitmap height map created in TerraRay for a beach scene that's plugged into a Displacer. The problem is that the texture is rotated in the wrong direction and I can't figure out how to rotate it the proper way. Is there a way to rotate this texture?

 

Thanks!

    Thanks for responding!

     

    The bitmap is plugged into the Displacer Modifier, so it doesn't have the same options as a regular material. I actually don't need a visible material on this, just an object for the water to go around / up against. It will be alpha channeled out. I'm probably am not fully understanding exactly what you mean though. 

     

    Basic files are attached if they help.

    It doesn't matter where the texture is - put the texture inside a layer shader, and than inside the layer shader put transform above it and than you can scale\rotate your texture as you wish

  • Thanks 3dkobi, I'll give that a shot. You've both been really helpful.
