I really like Wood Workshop so far... I've used it for what... 2 hours now /tongueNew members can't link' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=';)' />
The one feature I'd like to have in it is the posibility to render out a separate bump-map for use in my 3D package. This way the textures would hold up better with changing lighting conditions.

We will be looking at implementing this type of thing in the future.
Currently, am using this method to make normal maps......

Ultimately a normal map is meant to display 3d information - you take a low polygon-count model, apply your normal map, and voila, you get something that LOOKs a lot higher-poly.
Making low poly look high poly is the reason for normal maps! It's a technology geared towards real-time rendering (ie, games), rather than high-resolution rendering. And it's not like you can 'paint' a normal map either.. it's generated from a high poly model onto a low poly model. Very dependant on the geometry.

There's buckets of ways to generate normal maps, including converting bump maps, one of my favourite methods is this: [url="http://188.8.131.52/Ryan/nrmphoto/nrmphoto.html"]http://184.108.40.206/Ryan/nrmphoto/nrmphoto.html[/url] /ph34rNew members can't link' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />
lol.. nice. I saw a tutorial to do exactly that in 3dsMax...
