animated texture with normal map

How to make an animated texture with the normal maps?

Do you mean with lua by doing something like CreateMaterial or just using .vmt’s and vtf’s, which would be a whole lot easier? By the way, what are you making?

No, he means a texture with an animated normal map. The answer is yes. Look into how water textures are animated.

I thought by ‘animated texture’ with ‘normal maps’ he meant the texture and normal map were animated. If so, I found this. You might have to look into referencing normal maps in VMT’s however.
