## displacement map to a polygon

### displacement map to a polygon

Is there a way to apply a displ. map to a polygon? If so, how is it done? Im
a newbie, and ive looked in the docs and I've googled it, but cant find it.
Thanks.

As in...applying a d.m. to a single polygon, not a whole polygon object ;)

Thanks. Suppose I had a cube, and each side has 20 polygons, how do i apply
(if i can) a dm to one side of the cube? TIA.

someone correct me if Im wrong in this....

displacement maps are applied to shading groups. So, if you apply that
shader to only one side (selecting the faces then applying the shader to
them), it should only affect that side.

Yes, that works. Thanks. I should have tried that before. I didnt think it
would be that easy.

Yo.   Does anybody know of any resources that supply elevation maps
in some kinda graphic gray-scale format that would make for easy
displacement mapping of , say, state maps?

Basically, I want to make a relief version of a state map.
(Washington, to be exact.)  I can't just scan a regular "relief" map
because that has a shadowing convention built in.

Also, this doesn't have to be all that accurate, so 255 steps is
probably fine, if not overkill.

Thanks, fellow animators!
