Sweet. I've been hoping they were still developing this. It's handy.

Thanks for the tip! I've been using ShaderMap Pro 1.0 for years and it's been the best $20 I ever spent on software! Even at it's new $39 price, it's still a great value. (BTW, to others using 1.0, the upgrade cost is $19.)

It looks like it's well worth the upgrade.

Without much divergence to this thread, I've been looking at the nDo2 to what might be a benefit over ShaderMapPro and / or Substance Designer. But, maybe there are enough differences these could all serve a different purpose. Anyone have one or the other of any of these three and want to give your opinion?

Yeah, I'd be interested in a comparison of the two - NDo2 and Shadermap2. One thing I don't like about NDo2 is that is requires Photoshop, AFAIK. Shadermap2 looks like it's completely standalone. Reviewing both sites quickly, it looks like Shadermap2 looks to be the better deal.

BUT... I'd really like to know what others think.

I have ShaderMapPro and it's a great deal. I don't have nDo2, but from what I've seen ShaderMapPro 2 does the same things. I'm still researching it, but one thing is better - price.

...and a question about map size was answered by the developer -

"It depends on memory size. It is compiled to use virtual memory if the user runs out of RAM but that would slow things down considerably."

Yeah, that's what it seems to me as well. And yes, the price is far better - in fact I've already upgraded! :)

I've been checking these out - VERY helpful to understand the product.

just a note on ndo 2....
(what i find neat about ndo is that it's integrated into PS, with the benefits this has)
(mainly tools/filters... lasso tool, line tool, noise, blur, path vector tools, etc etc etc...)


Q: Do we need the extended license of Photoshop CS4 to get the 3D thing working?
Or does the generic license is also working fine with this plugin?

A1: With CS4, you need the extended version for 3D.

A2: It works with the regular version of photoshop, the 3d features are extended as part of this plugin.

i guess the guy (A2) has already tested it in the regular photoshop version with 3D success... (?)
