Hi!

I have just read some documents about relief mapping, relief impostors and so on. This tecnique seems absolutely amazing, since it can also simulate overlapping surfaces without additional geometry!
There is some plugin that allows the implementation of this advanced shader on Lightwave? It would be wonderful.
I read about a plugin on an old Spinquad post, but in the indicated site the plugin seems to be no longer present, or at least I can't find it.

If someone knows about it, please let me know!
Bye Bye

i hope denis makes this one a material node, it 's an excellent candidate to convert to a material node.

Thank You very much, and many thanks to Mr. Pontonnier for this very useful addon.

I guess if this plugin can handle also non height-field structures, like overlapping surfaces, that are explained by Fabio Policarpo in

at "Multi-Layer Relief Mapping" section (Multilayer_ReliefMapping_I3D2006.pdf).
