    Hey peeps. Im lookin for a program similar to crazy bump. I like crazy bump but was wondering if there are any other programs similar to it. Nvidia plugin doesnt work in my photoshop cs5. Any advice?

        I haven't tried it but nDo2 looks like a beefed up version of Crazy Bump integrated into Photoshop:

          I tried nDo2 when it was in Beta and I have to say, while I liked it a lot a am a bit more comfortable with Crazybump. Also XNormal is better if you wanna bake maps from a high resolution mesh. If you are looking into getting simple normal, height, occlusion, and specular maps from a texture then I feel Crazybump is the way to go. However I feel that the previous step is Shadermap pro, in my month or so of using it.

            nDo2 is so much slower than Crazybump, its not even funny. Its. So. Very. Slow. That said, I think it generates cleaner normal maps than Crazybump, and it has better AO support. Even though it gives you less overall control over it.

            I'd use it instead of crazybump if it wasn't so **** slow.

                I have purchased nDo2, when you know how it's work you can achieve great results !

                Yes it's slow (but because of Photoshop, not nDo itself), but my advice is to work on small texture size, save your settings as a preset and then apply this new preset to your full texture.
                It work well !

                    Have you tried opening the 32 bit and 64 bit version of photoshop? I've seen cases where the Nvidia filter works on one but not the other.

                      I only have the 64 bit version, I'm not sure about the 32bit one

                        Yep, that's the one I'm using. Can't complain about it so far.
