I sculpted this model in blender, then I spent some time making and testing out different specular and normal maps. I generated the tangents about 3-4 times without any issues, and then on the next attempt I got these odd results and the SDK gave me a warning. I’ve ran into this error in the past, both in the SDK and JMB so I think it’s something I’m doing but I’ve never managed to figure out the reason

The only guess I have right now is that the normal map I’m trying to use might be invalid in some way? I generated it with the GIMP normal map plugin, converted the colors to the JME standard, and this is the resulting normal map for one of the less intense normal maps I was testing:

And here’s what the problem appears like when placed in a lighted environment with this normal map

here’s the warning message I get while generating tangents
