  • I have just made an empty project. I added a color map (to use as a source for the Specular Map). Then I added a Specular (from Diffuse) map to the project. I selected the Specular Map and assigned an export file name for it. This also creates a …
  • Can you explain in more detail what you are doing and what errors are reported. For instance, are you starting from a default project on the Start Screen, if so which one? Please provide as many steps as possible so I can help resolve your iss…
  • Yes I can contact you via your signup info. Thanks for offering your help for testing.
  • I will add your requests to the features list. That's about all I can do for now. Do you mind if I contact you for testing when this feature needs testing?
  • Is it possible to make a custom material or start with a blank template? Yes, you would need to create and program an XML shader file as shown in the ShaderMap SDK. You might start with the file "C:\Program Files\ShaderMap 4\plugins\mater…
  • You can learn more about DXT compression here: http://wiki.polycount.com/wiki/DXT DXT5 became Block Compression 3 (BC3) in DirectX 10.
  • Hi Vanblam, Have you set the Tile Mode on the source map? Select the source rock texture. Under the Project Grid are the map properties. Set the Tile property to "On XY". This will tell all maps generated from the source map to use seamless ge…
  • Adding a Bent Normals map plugin is a good idea, adding it to the list. As for BC5 Compression, I will look into adding it. All the best, Neil
  • I am glad you figured it all out.
  • I would start by loading up one of your scans in ShaderMap and generating PBR materials. From the Start Screen you can select Mode: PBR and then load one of your tiles as a Color Image. Try adjusting the Metalness and Roughness map intensities un…
  • Hi mattmostsinger, That error means that ShaderMap lost the display driver and wasn't able to recover from losing it. It is strange that the second user is able to use the program without that error. * I would try re-installing your graphics…
  • Hi Tim, You can batch process those maps by doing the following: * Create a project with ShaderMap using one of the jpeg textures in your set. * Modify the settings to your liking. * Ensure all nodes (maps you want saved) have a save file …

  • It looks like, in most instances, the system doesn't scan for %source_filename% when used in the output directory attribute. I've added this to the bug list and it should be fixed in the next update. Planning on early April for the next update. T…
  • I've been able to replicate your artifact bug. It seems like the Push Tool isn't positioning the polygons in a way that produces clean paths for the projection vectors. I have flagged this for further investigation. I recommend that you try the foll…
  • Excellent, thank you. I have received the model files and will investigate and report back. It is okay that you exported FBX without tangents and binormals, ShaderMap generates those on import.
  • Hi bruoj, That is strange. I wonder if its an artifact of the 3d visualizer or if the artifact is baked into the resulting normal map. If you can please provide me with a download link to the high and low poly models, I can debug what is happenin…
  • ShaderMap includes the ability to export projects as template files. Templates allow the user to re-use projects with alternate source nodes. Can you describe in detail the workflow you are hoping to achieve? Does it utilize the template project …

  • Thanks for bringing that to my attention. I've added the bug to the list.
  • I will investigate the issue you are having and see if I can replicate the problem.
  • * What errors are you getting, if any? * What happens when you create a default project and press the save button? * Do you have permission to write to that file location? * Have you tried ensuring that the file paths are case sensitive? I ha…
  • Locate the file "default_filename_overrides.xml" in your Documents\ShaderMap\SM4_3 folder. Open that file in a text editor and scroll down until you see the XML section will be for Standard Maps, for PBR for PBR Spec, etc. These sections d…
  • Hi VoidedBrain, Can you tell me exactly what XML you have edited and show what changes you have made? I can help you out after I have that info. All the best, Neil
  • Hi KarolStola, The Light Scan default project generates an albedo map from the light scan images. You can add your own albedo map to the project grid as a color image source: Mouse over Project Grid -> Add Button -> SRC:Color Map Once…
  • Hi verno, All maps are generated using 32 bit floating point pixels then stored in 16 bit floating point pixels for the duration of the session. I am unsure of why stepping is occurring, let's try to find out. * Are you seeing the stepping a…
  • Hi, It looks like the DirectX Web Setup sometimes throws this error. Very weird. Try using the full installer here: https://shadermap.com/_directx/directx_aug2009_redist.exe If that works without issue I may replace that as the main setup pack…
  • You can increase the number of cells in the Project Grid using the controls shown above.
  • You could try baking the model on a flat plane to render normal and displacement maps. Then use a material that supports displacement to give the blinds depth when rendering. The second default material in ShaderMap is displacement. Just drag it on …
  • I've updated the installer program and the local download configuration to use Rendering Systems controlled delivery. Please try to download ShaderMap again and let me know how it works. https://shadermap.com/downloads/_software.php?v=4 All th…
  • I am able to access the download of ShaderMap through two different IP locations. ShaderMap installer files are hosted on MediaFire, a cloud hosting platform. I wonder if this is being blocked somehow on your end. I've been meaning to move the ho…
  • Thanks for letting me know, I’ll test and get back to you asap
