Hey! A new tool called AwesomeBump is out now! Version 1.0 was released on January 30th, and since then there have been 3 subsequent releases. AwesomeBump is a lot like CrazyBump. Some BIG differences are that it’s free, open-source, AND cross-platform. Windows, Mac, and Linux. You load up an image, and it creates Normal, Specular, Height, and Occlusion maps for you. You can remove stretching from an image, remove shading from it, and there are SO many options for tweaking the maps! That’s not all - if you don’t like any of the models included with AB, you can load in your own! You can seriously test the texture maps ON YOUR OWN MODEL. It seems to good to be true, and it sort of is. “WHAT?! SORT OF?! WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?!”, you scream in a fit of rage. You need OpenGL 4.0 or greater to run the tool. The reason for this is because 99% of the computing is done on the GPU. If you can utilize this tool, it runs BLAZING fast. But don’t take my word for it!
