I am stuck with a logic problem. What I am trying to do is the following:
I want to arrange 3D objects (scaled boxes basically) in a circular shape and then move them up and down depending on a bumpmap.
The final effect is supopsed to be something similar to this: http://givester.de/bilder/geschenke/489-pinart-forme-im-nagelkissen-was-du-willst.jpg
but with the pins arranged in a circular shape instead of a rectangular one.
My problem now is the following:
I can get the basic shape that I want, but I don’t know how to map a bumpmap onto it. The best I could do is generate a wave sturcture, which dosn’t really help me though. Any ideas how to solve this?
Thanks in advance
This is what I’ve got so far:
