Hi! So today I've been working on a hair mesh that is part of my personal project to my character that I've made. When I was checking on it's normal maps, I've noticed that some part of the NM have been darkened or even flipped and it all had to do with the normal maps I've created in Zbrush. For when I've looked into the hair with the highest subdivion and some points/vertices of it were raised on the other side, thus causing an unsymmetrical mesh. So what I've attemted to do was to smooth out those wrong incorporated vertices and tried to symmetrize them by using "Smart Resymmetrize" button. The Hair was perfectly symmetrized, I've created new normal maps with perfect symmetry and imported them to Blender. And here's where the problems kicks in:
When I've inserted the new normal maps for the hair, It gives of this weird and unbalanced shadow on one side, while the other was brighter. And I've mure that the point light was facing towards the frontal part of the hair (which is where the human face is located). I couldn't for the life of me figure out what's causing this problem. So If there's anyone who knows this, let me know. And here's the fixed normal maps:
I know some of you will be confused by this of what I'm talking about, because I've been working on the mesh and writing this post almost at 12 pm. So i was kinda tired. But hopefully some of you will understand this to what I'm saying.
