Just finished the new one - excellent tutorial Mike. Great information, great presentation. I can already see how it's going to change things for me as well. Thank you very much

Same as above - the 0°/90­° walkthrough and the the usage of derived map in the 90°-channel was eyeopening to me. Now all we need is an build in option in maxwell to make those derived maps directly in the mxed/modelling apps.

Great work mike

The issue there, as you'll see in later parts, is that there's no straightforward process for deriving the 90 maps... it's not always as simple as leveling or gamma adjusting the map - though that often works just fine. In some instances, there are uses for making radical departures in the 90 to exploit the system's behaviour. It's so wide and varied, that I think Photoshop still reigns as the best tool for preparing such maps. More to come...

It would be nice to have simple controls in maxwell for the "often" cases. Looking forward to the next episode.
