Ambient Occlusion from Normal or Height

Hi.

I want to increase height effects with Ambient Occlusion, but I don´t know how to do this. In my research, I found a filter named "Height to AO", but this filter is not listed in filter session. I found a description of this filter in Adobe Help, but without an explanation in how to use it.

Anybody could help me, please?

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

You can drag and drop this at the top of your layer stack.

The paint layer will be in passthrough (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H4rgnscD_3U) with the filter on it.

Hi,

Drag and drop the MatFxHBAO filter on top of your layer stack after having created an AO channel in your texture set settings.

Hi Geoffroy. Thank you for your reply.

I have a layer just with the height effect. Should I put this filter in that layer?
