You are trying to use a brush texture as a displacement texture. That does not work.

If you want to use a texture to displace the object, you need to create one by clicking the "New" Button in the Displace Modifier and then change the settings in the texture menu. Easy to reach with the button to the right.


THERE you can change the texture. This does NOT work with nodes.

Keep in mind: The Texture system in Blender is End-Of-Life and will be replaced at some point with a node based approach. (afaik)

  • $\begingroup$ I think that you're wrong about that , it should be an addon to do this ... $\endgroup$ – hamed.design Oct 21 '19 at 11:30
  • $\begingroup$ Well then, which one is it? Post the name/link! Vanilla Blender does not do this at the moment. It's as simple as that. $\endgroup$ – michaelh Oct 21 '19 at 12:47
  • $\begingroup$ What a ridiculous thing :| how it works with image mode ? and how it works with texture painting ? this is a bug $\endgroup$ – hamed.design Oct 21 '19 at 15:25
