scale and rotate for bump maps and texture maps

Post by define » Thu Aug 11, 2011 12:12 am

hello adam,

I'd like to be able to scale and rotate bump maps as well as texture maps.
Well I can scale and rotate the textures under sketchup ....but
at least the bump maps. Or is there any control for the scaling of bump
maps, that I missed? best klaus

The bumpmap stays in lockstep with the texturemap, so using SketchUp tools for scale and rotating the texture also effects the bumpmap.
If you want to animate the UV of the material you can set this up during Tourtool by using the Material Dialog.

Here I've set it to "Ramp" which will smoothly scroll the texture. Dragging in the waveform area will change the speed.
