Not shiny normalmaps

Postby ValkoVer » Mon Apr 09, 2012 2:54 pm

Hey, anyone know how to make normalmaps that are not shiny like glass, as example for wood, while still looking "deep", i've been trying to make them more transparent in gimp, but they look almost flat, and still little shiny :F

I want to say take the blue out of the _n image but I know rayne, the master of normal maps has a better solution.

Something like this?
Would have been easier if i had the diffuse mas so i can generate the normal map from scratch and add the alpha but OK.

Its exactly what i want, but i just can't get it right in gimp (its strong blue, and moving these sliders do nothing)
