Made two objects a plane and a pyramid then bake using the displacement mode with select to active. enter image description here

The output from the bake is grey for the plane and flat white for the pyramid. When the image texture is used as a sculpt brush it doesn't create the same pyramid shape that was used for the bake. Don't know what I have done wrong could I have some help please.

  • $\begingroup$ Can you elaborate what you're trying to do? Are you trying to bake the pyramid shape into a texture? $\endgroup$ – LetTheWritersWrite Apr 21 '17 at 4:15
  • $\begingroup$ I'm trying to make a custom sculpt brush that puts a pyramid shape onto a mesh when in sculpt mode. But the sculpt brush that i made and loaded into blender using texture that you can see in the lower window just sculpts a square shape with a bit of a bump. $\endgroup$ – Julian Apr 21 '17 at 4:20
  • $\begingroup$ Can you post how your texture looks? $\endgroup$ – LetTheWritersWrite Apr 21 '17 at 4:26

  • $\begingroup$ Try enabling normalized in the bake settings. You could place a camera above the cone and use the z-depth from the render for the brush. $\endgroup$ – sambler Apr 21 '17 at 5:34

I really don't think you can have such a deep point on a displacement texture. That's why it just bakes a white square. Your brush is essentially just a square brush.

I quickly made an example of how the texture should actually look like. It's not precise but it's to give you an idea.

  • $\begingroup$ Basically did the same as your screen shot but added a invert node [link]imgur.com/a/kaB8C which gave a better result but still isn't exactly what I was trying to achieve [link]imgur.com/a/VPVog Do you think I'm attaching the texture to the wrong sculpt brush should I apply it to another sculpt brush that blender has like the clay brush? $\endgroup$ – Julian Apr 22 '17 at 10:39
  • $\begingroup$ Ok just needed to change the curve to this. imgur.com/a/uZ1vg fixed :) thanks for your help $\endgroup$ – Julian Apr 22 '17 at 17:11
  • $\begingroup$ No problem. Give it a check if you believe it answered you correctly so others can know. ;) $\endgroup$ – LetTheWritersWrite Apr 22 '17 at 18:40
