< Back to Wiki

While most maps in max allow you to change its “color map” with the graph, bump maps cannot use it.

You can test this for yourself:

    1. Add a image to a bump map
    2. Go in to the maps setting and scroll down to Output
    3. Enable Color Map
    4. Adjust the RGB or MONO
      1. Example take the white point from 1.0 to 0.2
    5. While the image will change the bump settings will not.
