Vertex Displacement Mixer


The Vertex DisplacementThe process of utilizing a 2D texture map to generate 3D surface relief. As opposed to bump and normal mapping, Displacement mapping does not only provide the illusion of depth but it effectively displaces the actual geometric position of points over the textured surface. Mixer allows you to mix multiple Vertex Displacement nodes. In the following illustration (figure 1), the NodeGraph Editor window is used to clearly illustrate the association of the various texture nodes.
