View Full Version : Can gradient control bump falloff?

I have been tinkering with this, but no success... LW 8.5

I want a vertical object to have a bump texture at its base, and that texture to fade away toward the top, leaving the object smoother and smoother as you go up.

I can do it with color, but so far no luck doing it with bump.

any ideas?

thanks!

I just use the gradient in the Bump channel as an alpha - set it to distance from pivot on the Y axis and you should be good to go.

yeah, that did it.

thanks, nthused!
