aiSetParameters - Displacement/VectorDispl map?

We are using operators to assign shaders on the fly. No probleme there.
when we want to use Displacement/VectorDisplacement maps with operators but we cannot make them working properly...

I added disp_map = 'file1' in the Assignment where file1 is my displacement map,
Im trying to tweak disp_height or disp_zero_value but no good results... Im wondering if anyone can give me a hand or send an example of operators using displacement/VectorDisplacement Maps.

Thnks!

Displacement shaders from maya are translated to Arnold with the follwoing name structure:

{shader_name}.displacement

Say your displacement shader is called 'displacementShader1'

Your assignment would be:

disp_map = 'displacementShader1.displacement'

Hope that helps.
