Multiple UVsets Normals seams

Recommended Posts

Hi! In per pixel painting I use several UV sets and there is some inconvenience in tech nuances. I have 5 meshes, 5 normal maps, I import all the meshes separately with their own UVsets. then I start importing normal maps. If I import them separately they looks correctly, but I no need a bunch of layers with same name "Normalmap" it makes workflow little messy so i'd like to optimize this bunch and there are 2+ ways to do that:

1st one is to import other normal maps into the same layer, I did this in early version of 3dc, but 4.5.16 has issue about it.

2nd way is place all normal maps into the folder.

But! both ways finds same issue: normal maps get messy uv seams, because of kind a smoothing algorithm. seems like the program is trying to smooth pixels between uv shells. Is good for all maps except of normal maps  :)

Is there a swith smoothing switcher somewhere? If it isn't make it please!

Thanx!

When you import meshes... UVset smoothing and autosmoothing groups are = off ?

Yep! normals looks correctly, but seams... damn it! after opening 3b file seams appeared!

It might help to change the name from "Normal" to Normal 1, etc or some other identifier and work on one object at a time
