What is a normal map?

Please read this excellent article if you want to understand the logic behind normal maps, and how they can help reduce the number of polygons in your 3D model while maintaining great visual results!

In Valkyrie, you can upload your normal map in the material editor (Ctrl + M) here:

(make sure the normal map flag is checked)

For more info, please check this topic on normal maps/height maps/greyscale bump maps.
And refer to the material editor tutorial.
