this is my first post so let me know if I'm doing something wrong.

I'm following this Blender Guru tutorial: https://youtu.be/1drRNphACMc?t=955

At the 15:55 mark he changes Displacement to True, which I've done, but my result doesn't look like his. Everything up until this point has, and I can't see any differences between what he's done and what I've done.

Mine looks like this instead:

And when he adds a Subdivision Surface modifier, it gets more bumps which make it look more ropey, but mine just goes back to looking completely smooth, like so:

Any advice on where I might be going wrong here?

  • $\begingroup$ before, just after setting displacement to "true" he did a double tab to enter/exit edit mode (16.03), and that made the rope became much more "influenced" by the bump... only after he added a subsurf and also activated "adaptive"... are you sure you followed strictly his workflow? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I've definitely done all of that to the letter :/ Feeling a bit lost. I must have some other settings incorrect I think, but I don't know what could be causing it? $\endgroup$

You might have to set your displacement map to non color data in the node editor.

Here is an example of microdisplacement with the map set to color data:

And this is the same image, set to non color data:
