Normal Maps, correct format?

Recommended Posts

So I've been trying to add planets using Kopernicus and everything appears to be going well. However, there are a few technical questions that remain, if anyone could answer would be super helpful!

What is the correct or preferred format for Normal maps? I've been using .DDS, DXT5 format with so-so results. I tried using DXT5_NM but my planet vanished. I've also tried using a normal full color normal map (normally hued blueish) but that also causes my planet to vanish, so instead I use a gray scale. Also tried a .PNG format as some have suggested- but my planet also vanishes.

yes i think so. When you save, do you go into the image options and pick  Normal Map: Object Space?Int1J61.pngafioo64.png
