NormalMapperUI provides a graphical front end to ATI's normal map creation tool - NormalMapper. The interface lets the user pick the input data they would like to use - the output format - and set all available creation options. The program then passes the information off to NormalMapper for the creation of the image.
As of version 1.20 NormalMapperUI is also available as a standalone VB.net application. The UI and functionality is identical to the MaxScript version. The stand alone version is useful for artists that are using modeling packages other than 3ds max. Before the VB.net version will install the Microsoft .Net Framework needs to be installed on the target machine.
ATI's NormalMapper utility can be downloaded from Tools section on the ATI developer site - http://www.ati.com/developer/tools.html. NormalMapperUI is hosted there - also.
The standalone version is available here
