Lateral displacement of sphere
« on: February 25, 2017, 10:08:03 AM »
How can I laterally (horizontally) displace a sphere object? I know it requires those computed normals (whatever the name is) but I don't know where and how to apply it. Regardless of where I put it in the internal network it doesn't do anything. The surface is just smooth.
