What is a dudv map?

Recommended Posts

I've been playing with hl2 sdk and ran across some weird looking dudv map things. I'm familiar with normal mapping but don't really see how this one is used. Intuitively i understand it means change in horizontal (derivative of u coord) along with change in vertical (derivative of v coord).

I have no idea what im talking about, so take this as pure conjecture. Are the dudv's stored in smaller datatypes than uv's would be? that might explain a reason.
