AwesomeBump: open source texture map generator

8

AwesomeBump transforms images to several types of texture maps.

AwesomeBump is an open source program designed to generate normal, height, specular or ambient occlusion textures from a single image. Since the image processing is done in 99% on GPU the program runs very fast and all the parameters can be changed in real time. AB was made to be a new alternative to known gimp plugin called Insane Bump.

AwesomeBump is totaly written in Qt thus you don’t need to install any aditionall libraries. Just download and install Qt SDK, download the project from the repository, build and run. It will work on any platform supported by Qt.

I have a LONG history with Blender – I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-)

  1. Awesome bump is amazing especially for its price(FREE!!).
    The only downside is the lack of documentation, I am struggling to use the material tap!.
