I am currently looking for a way to make normals "brighter".
The reason is that I was looking for a method to combine two normal maps and found this question: How to Combine two Normal Maps? I implemented all of the described techniques and two of them deliver the same result but the second one is a bit brighter. I wanted to make the first one look like this too.
Thanks in advance!
EDIT: Actually it's the other way around. The second method seems to brighten the color.
EDIT: For clarification the first method is the one by redcapricorn / Secrop and the second one by Bithur. I think it might appear brighter because Bithur divided with an HSV Value of 1.25 but I don't know how to enter anything beyond 1.
