    Nodal Displacement

    Good day!
    Trying to do this older tutorial in 2018, but not quite getting the same effect. I'm following everything as shown except there is no Spot Info Smoothed Normal in 2018, only Normal that I can see and that doesn't seem to do the trick.

    Any suggestions on how to displace as shown in image; open to alternative methods but was trying to do with nodes.

    Thank you!

    Thanks again @Sensei. Yes, I can get it to work now. For some reason, it didn't want to seem to let me if I brought in the object from Modeler, but if I built the sphere in Layout, it works fine. I'm sure I'm probably missing something still, but it works now.

    Thanks again, especially for posting the screen shot!!!

    No problem.. A picture is worth a thousand words. Much easier than describing it in English
