When applying multiple materials (mat IDs) to an object, you simply set different Mat.IDs for each polygon and by doing that, you get a sharp transition between these materials. But what if you don't want that? What if you want a smooth transition between your materials?
That's what I am going to show you in this tutorial: how to paint multiple materials with Vertex Paint.

(ID: 238560, pid: 0) Miyamoto on Wed, 11 December 2013 4:15am i like this tut,but i have a question .how to show texture in viewport while we paint vertex without render to see result.Because if i paint a few second and then push render like that ,i cant control overall map.hope your answer,sr about my bad English.Have fun
(ID: 176933, pid: 0) Andres on Thu, 17 January 2013 8:40pm And what about Vray displacement mode with vertex paint????
(ID: 173995, pid: 0) Yan on Sat, 29 December 2012 8:10pm You can also do this using a single material and a composite map in each channel you want to use ( diffuse, bump, displacement ... ).
Then put the vertex color in the mask channel of the composite map.

(ID: 124582, pid: 0) Gvido on Tue, 12 June 2012 12:09pm Unfortunately no. You can assign only map file to VRayDisplacementMod, not all material.
But, there may be a solution. I have never tried it, so I'm not 100% sure, it will work: You could assign displacement map to each material individually.
