It's definitely faster (though less accurate) than doing everything from scratch.

So it generates a normalmap from a 2D image. While not usefulfora gallery piece, as an ingame effect it would be amazing.

 Even though it's great and helpful I would rather implement something like this to my game on realtime. That would really look great with pixel-art. Like this:

 A very clever tool which I think will be very useful in the right project

Pretty amazing tool.

looks cool but i still prefer doing all by hand ^^

Had my coder friend show this to me and I think the concept is great. But for animated characters the workload would be a bit tedious by yourself, yet for the background effects it's really interesting.

This is cool and interesting and even a great learning and ref tool. PJ will not accept pixels known to be created using this tool.

 I am not entirely convinced ( yet) I would like to see the option for some color maps to allow hueshifting and measurements for palette control. Also, I don't think such a workflow is efficiant for a large amount of animated assets. Still it likely allows for some nice things.

Take my money!

 Algunos resultados no me convencen mucho pero estare atento a su desarrollo.


Some results do not convince me but I'll see how it develops.

 Wow. So much to do with this.
