Default can maya do this?

i want to be able to use the paint tool to paint a bump map or displacement map directly on my models and see it on screen.

like perhaps paint wrinkles ect..

similar to the way i see it being done in zbrush.


is this possible to do in maya? the way i discribed it.

from what i can tell i think the answer is no, but i just want to make sure.


thanx

no realtime feedback on bumps or displacements(on 5)... but you can paint any map in maya...
i think you could indeed get feedback on bumps with a cg shader and two side by side models one in wich is connected to color and the other with the cg shader and the same map as a bump... but its been so long i dont touch maya...

yeah, you can't get realtime updates on the bump/displacement in the panel. You only see those take affect when it renders.
