    Default Rendering ZBrush Normal Maps in Carrara Tutorial

    Hello, I've lurked around here for quite some time now but never posted.

    Anyway, I've had a few problems getting ZBrush normal maps to work in Carrara. I searched around but couldn't find any step by step tutorials on this. After much mucking about I finally got it working and thought I'd share. As Carrara doesn't support normal maps I used Inagoni's Baker plugin.

    I posted this over at Polyloop.net and someone suggested putting it up here. So, here's a basic tutorial on how to get ZBrush normal maps into Carrara. I hope it is of use.

    There may be better ways of doing this, so please feel free to comment.


    Regards
    Tony

    Ash,
    Welcome to the forum and many thanks for the tutorial. Hopefully it will prove useful - you use the same programs as I do although I need to upgrade Carrara (and learn it a lot better).

    Thanks Dondemaker. I'm a hobbyist who learns a lot from forums. It's nice to be able to give something back.

    Regards
