View Full Version : node editor: gradient node cannot plug into bump channel

There doesn't seem to be any obvious way to plug a gradient node into the bump input of the surface node. The red and green outputs for the gradient node will not connect to the blue input for the bump channel of the surface node nor have I been able to find an intermediary node to handle this task.
I'm assuming that since gradients are available in the original surface editor's bump channel that this is possible in the node editor as well yet the solution eludes me.

Vector Add will convert it, as will most of the vector arithmetic nodes.

Plugging the colour output of a gradient won't give you expected results though...

that works just fine thank you very much
