Normal Combine

Normal Combine

In: Filters/Normal Map



Normal Combine combines the details of two Normalmaps in a mathematically correct way. It is similar to the well-known "Overlay" method from other 2D image editing software, but does work slightly different internally (three options).

This is the best and most correct way to add 2D-generated Normalmap details to a baked map.

If you want to blend two Normalmaps without combining their details (using a mask, for example), you should use Normal Blend.
