Crew, release the THUMBS UP kraken!!!
please bro reply me, i am really trying to learn hard
bro please help us its not working after adding the subsurface modifier, please,,,,,.
its not working for me, i did exactly what you did
please help me
Wonderful Video, thank you so much man.. I have one problem, when i add the Math node and set it to Multiply and give the strength to 50 the height of the displacement is not at all rising. Can any body help me on this pls :(. I am using Blender 2.79
What am I missing? The displacement isn't actually popping out in to the 3rd dimension? It just looks like a normal simualted bump map with no real Z displacement happening. I have experimental on and Adaptive checked on the subsurface modifier. Someone said something about turning displacement to "true" but can't find that option.
I have one question :does blender 2.8 have the experimental mode or is it the default for 2.8?
My mind just exploded! 😁
Anyone care to help a small problem? Using Blender 2.79b here. My displacement in previous versions used to come out quite brilliantly. Now they look less than decent. Doing mostly greeble tech panel type of work. Lots of stretching in my displacement. Any ideas as to why? Made 8k images in adobe illustrator exporting open exr via After Effects.
Thanks Gleb, your tutorials are in a whole different league.
Не могу понять. Все делаю, как на видео. Не получается сделать объем у плоскости как 6.35 минуте.
ok cool Gleb, but where to get those moon textures for displacement?
Hi, and thanks for this great tutorial :]
I did follow your steps but surprisingly I don't get that huge displacement like in 07:06 when I increase the displacement.
а так можно было????
6:30 I don't see it
Thanks Gleb, u inspired me for this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KQpy7r7ORW4&t=64s
object looks way too mushy, and has black lines
very cool, thanks for sharing!
when im trying to follow the active quads, it says: "no active face is not selected" what should I do?
This tutorial is great! I really like your style a really good motivator!
Do games use this?? I think this should be very demanding (=not). I just wish you could keep the geometry that the normal map faked, like, subdivide the mesh and apply the fake rendered geometry to the mesh. Actually, in zbrush that can be done!! they create custom brushes from a texture and then apply it to the mesh, and it actually becomes part of the geometry, and not just a trick, they use it many times to put sci-fi elements in hard surface models.
I dont get this. I thought you were just gonna generate some Normal maps and use it to fake detail. But, somehow, this "trick" makes the geometry modify acording to the texture?? Never heard of this. I guess its just easier to use this instead of modeling everything, but its weird that you have to render it to see it, in object mode you cant see it, so its a rendering trick?? I just saw some other dude doing this and i thought the geometry would modify itself acording to the texture, like, that you could keep the geometry like that, but i guess that would be too good, or maybe exists, i dont know.
Why is your displacement so detailed. Mine looks like a bad distorted low poly mesh. What's the trick tell me
I lost it at 15:13 LMFAO! thanks GLEB! not only are the tutorials super informative, you've made them very entertaining! props!
One question . HOW did you even guess about that?? You're the best men.
50 shades of Gleb
you can also press alt+R to reset the camera's rotation 😉
hey gleb!!i cant able to displace exact type height map like your 6.48 min in this video!!the bumps are getting weird
I love this guy
You make it so easy!
Hi Greb. Great work and the concept of using micro displacements and height maps has me fascinated. I see that you have credited Michalis with the imagery you used when you made your own depth map. I found the extra long thread on Blenderartists.org started by Michalis on this very subject and wondered whether the posters on there ever did get around to creating a repository or library of images which the community could use to put detailed sci fi panels and other surfaces together?
Double rubbish = rubbbbish
Keep doing the job, keep teaching us, ohh MASTER! :O.
that's cool bro, just one thing, is this method still working or we should test something new, because i have seen that the new principle shader is also defining displacements ?
Hey Gleb, Thank you so much for these videos you do¡ Is there anyway to 3D Print Micro displacement results? Can you generate actual geometry from this?
you may be the blender god
That displacement on the torus, genius stuff, it looks so good. Gleb, you are a wizard, thank you for inspiring us!
Wtf pls guys help me…(( I cant use depth map( i don’t know why
Holy cow my mind has been blown! I'm going to buy the space VFX course asap!!
Hey Gleb, love creative shrimp. I was wondering why no one has done a micro displacement tutorial for realistic skin? Is there a reason that I may be missing?
@29:29 How is that animation made?
