Corel PHOTO-PAINT X5 :: Creating Bump Maps For MS Flight Simulator X

Apr 2, 2012

Ideally I would like to use the nVidia normal map filter plugin - it's for Photoshop, and although, apparently, you can use some photoshop plugins, this one does not seem to work.

First question - is there a way to use the nVidia plugin?

Next - is there a Corel way?

I have created my own greyscale heightmap images and I can export red channel for alpha. Then I flood fill the red channel black and the blue channel white and export the RGB as the colour part. Creating a dds image gives me a pseudo bumpmap


Whenever I use this kind of bumpmap I get the effect I want on the aircraft models, but for some reason, "my" bumpmaps seem to remove the polygon smoothing of the 3D models so that when I "fly" the aircraft, I actually see the polygons instead of the smotthed mdl surface.This photbucket link shows what I mean.

The left hand image shows the original bumpmap on the original model. The next image shows modified artwork on the same model. Then I have change to a "D-i-Y" bumpmap and the last two show that although the desired bumps are there, I now have the wireframe polygons visible.

Corel PHOTO-PAINT X5 :: Creating GIF Animation

Sep 12, 2011

I was trying to make an animated GIF with 30 static GIF images I made with PhotoPaint X5 itself.

The crash happened every time I tried to close the program without saving the animated file – which I couldn't make due to not achieving what I intended (I'll have to learn a bit more about background and objects).

It happened on a 64-bit Windows 7 Professional system with 12 GB of DDR3 RAM.

Corel PHOTO-PAINT X4 :: Creating Animated GIF With Movie

Nov 15, 2012

I am trying to animate a small thing. A smiley face which bounces up and down. I have set it all up etc. but when I preview nothing happens. On the right hand side, in the movie docker, it shows the correct frames, (all 6 of them).

In the main window, when I click through the 6 frames, they are all frame 1.  And when I press play, nothing happens (it says processing in the bottom corner, and keeps filling up the bar and starting again (assuming it is playing, but playing the same frame repeatedly?)

Not sure what to do with it? When I saved it, and opened the file, it kind of worked, all though frame one stayed there throughout the animation, the others did appear and do their thing, just behind frame one.

Corel PHOTO-PAINT X3 :: Paragraph Text - Creating New Pages?

Dec 9, 2011

I don't often work with paragraph text, but I'm creating a booklet of about 32 pages. When I paste my text into Draw, it automatically creates as many pages as are necessary to display all of it. But when I change text borders or enlarge the font, it doesn't add any more pages. If I manually add pages, the text doesn't continue to them.  All the original text is still there, but the excess is hidden within the border on the last page. I can manually add pages, of course, and cut and paste my text from one page to the next as necessary, but is there a way to automatically continue the text onto new pages?

Photoshop :: How To Create Clean Bump Maps

Jul 14, 2012

I'm trying to create a bump map for use in 3D rendering (3ds Max). This is the diffuse map i've created:

Problem is, no matter how much i fuss around with exposure, curves, hight pass filter, this is all i'm getting:

As you can see it is very "jagged" and looks terrible when rendered. I tried to clean it, but despeckle doesn't do it. I need something clean looking, like this one:

What is the proper way of creating this kind of bump map?

Paint.NET :: Creating Height / Parallax Maps?

Apr 23, 2012

Basically I want to create a heightmap from a colormap (a game texture). Heightmaps are used by my shader to add additional detail to surfaces (see herefor a such a surface). This technique is called Relief Bump Mapping and produces pretty cool result if the shader gets a decent heightmap.

My problem is that I only have colormaps and want to create the heightmaps in Paint.Net. So far I simply played around with the contrast and and brightness of the picture, but the results are not perfect...

I uploaded some scaled down pictures which illustrate my problem a bit better:

This is my colormap texture:

If I am using my technique (changing contrasts and brightness) I don't get good results.

The red parts show the most problematic zones of the heightmaps. Since black means no height and white means height, these regions don't contain any height informations...I already thought about using a edgre filter, but the built in one doesn't seem to be very good.

Corel PHOTO-PAINT X5 :: How To Change Shades Of Background In Photo

Feb 1, 2012

I am trying to change the background of a photo. Not just change the color but change the color AND make it keep it's original shading, etc. I have some family photos we had made recently and they used a beige color draping for the background. The ones we had made before had a black draping. I was wondering how I could go about using some sort of additive coloring to transform the varying shades of beige to the same varying shades of black.

I have already used the masking tool to separate the background from the rest of the photo.

Corel PHOTO-PAINT X5 :: Do Color Tint On A Photo?

Jan 4, 2012

Is there an easy way to do color tints on a photo in PhotoPAINT? And by that I don't mean just correcting the tint, I mean converting a regular photo into one that has a single color tint (e.g., yellow, red, etc.). I've tried graying it out and then adding a transparent color layer over it, but I'm not getting the result I'm looking for.

Also, while I'm at it, are there any (current) books out that cover PhotoPAINT in depth? I know that the official DRAW book has a section on it, but it's pretty basic.

Corel PHOTO-PAINT X6 :: Use A Photo Frame From Connect?

May 12, 2013

I would like to use a photo frame from connect, and keep it in the Effects>Creative>Frame menu of frames.  I have downloaded and clicked and dragged the frame to my image, but I would like to reuse this frame.  Is it possible to add it to the menu?  I can download it to the menu - but it is a temporary item in the list of views to the right, which can be replaced from any of the permanent members of the dropdown selection of frames on the left of the Frame menu.  I would like a frame to become one of those "permanent frames."

Corel PHOTO-PAINT X4 :: Colors Not The Same When Going From Draw To Photo?

May 16, 2011

I am making a background image for a website in Draw.  The main part is Black.

I export as a jpg and the image looks fine when I view it.

Then if I open it in photo-paint the black is not black, but rather has a grey color to it.  The image is exported fine and looks great when viewing it with the normal windows photo viewer program.

Something is happening when it is opened up in photo paint I think.
