Jump to: navigation, search

ParallaxTest is an unfinished shader since <Alien Swarm> (although not available in SDK 2013) which draws parallax mapping on an albedo. Alternative to the disabled $parallaxmap shader parameter. Accepts only a $basetexture, of which the alpha channel is used as the heightmap.

Bug: The material will always be drawn unlit.
Note:There's a workaround for this bug, as fake lightmaps can be done with Modulate shader

To do: Document/test more of this shader!
