Need help with normals!

Recommended Posts

I know how to calculate normals, but my model is all messed up- I think I need to enable two-sided lighting, but is there any way I can enable lighting on both sides, but so that it only shows on one side?

Make sure you are calculating your normals consistently . You should be calculating them from vertices in either clockwise or counter clockwise order, but don''t mix this order up.

If you are specifying your normals correctly then you should by eble to get lighting effects by simply specifying a light and enabling lighting

If you are not specifying these normals correctly and you have enabled back face culling then your modle will be jumbled up because the wrong faces are being culled.

Hope this helps
