Is it crazy to want great textures in just a few minutes? Is it crazy to achieve awesome bump, displacement, occlusion, specularity and diffuse maps in just a few mouse clicks? Well if your tired of the hours spent in Photoshop to achieve the look you want then this little tool is a must have!
Crazy Bump, by Ryan Clark, is a tool that lets you create all the files you need to have a great texture on all your projects. With Crazy Bump all you do is import your image, wait a couple seconds for Crazy Bump to think about it, then start tweaking away at the intensity levels, fine details and SO much more for each pass. After your done and satisfied, and yes there is a display window so you can see exactly how your bump will look upon rendering, you can save then import the files into your favorite 3D software package. Of course if you are not ready to say goodbye to Photoshop just yet you can import your files into it and do even more polishing.
With Crazy Bump you get a limited time Evaluation edition free to download. If you like it, and I am sure you will NEED it, you can purchase one of three different license to suite your needs.
Until next time 3D Artists!
