Automated normal map generation

The effect tools generate normal maps based on image processing algorithms.

Powerful algorithms create normal maps from your sprite automatically. They analyze the sprite's transparency and structure to create volume and texture in your normal maps.

Paint tools - optimize your normal map

Use the painting tools to refine your normal maps

Draw with the brush tools to fine tune your generated normal maps.

  • Adjust the orientation of your sprite using the angle brush
  • Add structure and textures using the structure brush.
