CAD Visuals | Displacement Mapping

Adobe Photoshop

As required for this module we were required to produce some examples of displacement mapping using our designs. This is a technique we were taught in a previous term for our digital module and revisiting this would be useful for our current practice.

Displacement mapping allows you to visualise your designs on a product or object, making it useful when when deciding what designs work best on what. I am focusing mainly on interiors spaces for this brief, I want to include things like cushions, throws and even rugs. I feel my designs would work best in this department.

I discovered a very useful tutorial on YouTube demonstrating how to use this technique on Adobe Photoshop. This tutorial uses an example to follow step-by-step.
