# Basic normalmap material does not render smooth in Blender 2.93.1 eevee

I have this normalmap material that renders smooth in eevee in Blender 2.92.0 but doesn't in Blender 2.93.1

What is needed to do in order to make the material render smooth in Blender 2.93.1?

The .blend file (Saved in Blender2.93.1) is provided below, and some screenshots as well.

• First thing I would try, is changing the Normal Map image texture's Color Space from sRGB to Non-Color. (This is proper convention for normal maps). Dec 7 '21 at 16:18

Any image texture that is not used as a color data should have its Color Space set to Non-Color:

This is required for its data to be interpreted correctly.
