ShaderMap 4 Features

  • Fast Map Generation
    Select a mode and source type then load the source file - ShaderMap will create a project generating maps from the source. It's that easy.
  • Bake Maps from 3D
    Load a 3d model into the project grid and render normal maps, AO, curve, color ID, and depth from the model geometry.
  • Speed and Memory
    Maps are rendered using 32 bit floating point pixels and stored in 16 bit memory to ensure both speed and efficient memory usage.
  • Editor Exchange
    Export any map to your favorite image editor at any time. Once done, save the map and it will be brought back into ShaderMap.
  • Scripting with LUA
    Export LUA scripts for any project. Control batch scripting of multiple source files, map rendering, setup lighting and more with the LUA API.
  • Map Filters
    Use the Filter Tab to add additional filters to any Map. Auto Edge, Brightness, Contrast, Blur, High Pass, Shadow, Highlight and more.
  • Normal Map Editor
    Paint normals and displacement to the SM4 layer system. Transform, scale, paint, and use tools to modify normal vectors.
  • PBR Materials
    Generate Roughness and Metalness maps. The Start screen PBR Mode automatically packs maps into RMA and RMAD formats.
