not to confuse a map vs a pass [rendered]
hmm, so many maps
some maps are rendered, others are painted like a color map or such

diffuse map > flat color map

ambient map > secondary diffuse

specular diffuse > color for specular highlight

specular map > grayscale for controlling spec strength

occlusion map > grayscale map for
highlighting blacks and whites

shadow map > baked shadows into a map [rendered ]

normal map > a height map [rendered or painted ]

displacement map > another height map
[rendered or painted ]

bump map > another height map
[rendered or painted ]

*dont quote me on these
