Displacement Map?

Recommended Posts

  • Topic Author
  • Hi,

    I'm making an image and need to stamp a logo into a piece of metal like a hallmark on a bar of gold. What's the best way of doing this? I'm guessing a displacement map, but I have never tried it before. Any tips would be great, or better ways of doing it also welcomed. smile.gif

    how deep is it going to be in? bump with a negative value, or use spd, just make a big hi res of the type your stamping in

  • I've got a real nice texture for the model as a shader and want to stamp a shape into the model using SPD but I can't work out how to place it where I want. Can this be done while keeping the shader, or do I need to start again with Body Paint? mur.gif

  • Thanks for the help you two. In the end Colibert got it going using the logo in the bump channel and mixing the textures. Here's how it looked.
