NormalMap-Online This website lets you create normal maps from height maps for free. All normal map textures you create are your own. Textures are not saved on the server and all scripts are running on your Browser. Insane Bump This is a normal map generator from a single image, originally created by omaremad. Load a single layer picture, then choose filters/map/insanebump..., tweak the details, then hit OK. The normal/height/ambiend/specular maps for the picture will be created within the folder where the original picture resides. The script produces different files within the original image's directory: the _n is the normal map, the _s is the specular, the _d is the diffusion (just the color) the _a is the ambiend occlusion the _h is the displacement (or height map) Rename it to InsaneBump.py, make it executable and place it into the plug in directory. PS I apologise for not caring for the script, since there is no way that I can be notified for problems from this forum, please use this forum thread:

14,000 Free Images from the French Revolution Now Available Online It’s often said that the French Revolution (1789-1799) created the “blueprint” for all revolutions to come. Unlike any event before it, the Revolution drew its strength from ideology — an ideology that turned on the belief that France had created a radical break with its monarchical past, and would now radically re-organize itself along egalitarian and democratic lines. To drive this message home, the revolutionaries produced thousands of pamphlets and political works of art. What’s more, they created a new revolutionary calendar and a series of revolutionary festivals that helped give cultural expression to the idea that France had entered a new political age. More than a century later, the Russian revolutionaries would use the French blueprint and all cultural tools at their disposal to promote its Marxist ideals. You’ve seen the posters.

Library: Pixar One Twenty Eight - RenderMan Community Classic Textures from Pixar Created in 1993 this texture library includes 128 repeating textures, now available for free. Pixar One Twenty Eight includes: 5 Tips for Better Materials Shading (the process of setting up materials) is an often over-looked step in the CG pipeline. I used to just play with the material settings until it looked a bit like what I was trying to make, and then move onto texturing thinking that that was all there is to it. A wood texture slapped on a diffuse shader. Bleh. However, in my never-ending quest for realism I’ve come to realize that shading is in fact the most important step in creating something believable. Of course modelling, texturing, lighting and all the rest are also very important, but shading is what determines how tangible your surfaces appear – it shows your audience what it might feel like to touch; how soft, sticky, or flexible it might be, and what it might be like to live in this new world that you’ve created with your render.
