Kirk Clemons of Chief Architect has also Created a Tutorial for those willing to try making there own it is here:

https://kcclemo.neocities.org/creating-height-and-normal-maps/

 

Chief Architect also has a KB Tutorial on how to Apply Maps here:

https://www.chiefarchitect.com/support/article/KB-01807/using-bump-maps-to-make-realistic-water-effects.html

 

 

And hopefully Kirk doesn't mind  I made a PDF of his Tutorial too... you'll still need the Internet for the Online Map Mapper and GIMP - an Image Editing Program.

Thanks Rene , I am assuming you need the 4x16 Tile Material I made by altering the std Chief "White Tile" ? the Grout lines are bigger than I'd like, but that is the best I can personally do.

I've tried using that online tutorial and got all the way to the online Normal Map generator and everything worked and look fine, except when I downloaded the image and looked at it on my system is was all black.  Wondering what I missed.

jtcapa, quoting kirkclemons as I don't use his particular method and generate my maps through photoshop only

post an image if you would like it converted,

cheers.

Could be a browser issue. I generally use GIMP for all of my normal maps, but it seemed simpler to write the article using the online generator as installing the normal map plugin and working with layers seemed like it might be a little more complex than the majority of users would be willing to go.

 

Maybe I'll write a second article or create a video some time showing the method I use all within GIMP. But, if you have access to Photoshop, then it is worth learning how to take advantage of it.
