Nice online tool!

Would be great if it could show a 3D preview with a moving light and a bit of specularity.

Could you explain how this would be helpful to normal BT users?

I didn't understand what this tool does, that would help me in making my BT shows better.

Is the show linked below an example of how we would need this tool?

Would we take an image of a strawberry, and use the tool to create a "normalmap"/"bumpmp" from the image, and then apply it to a text layer via BumpMap.fx ??

Is that sort of scenario what we would use that tool for?

I haven't created this tool and I haven't found any documentation, but I think it converts a height map or maybe a transparent picture into a normal map.

A normal map is a kind of a bump map that BluffTitler can render when using the BumpMap.fx effect:
1) create a new picture layer by pressing the ADD PICTURE LAYER... button (the installer comes with 3 bump maps)
2) apply the BumpMap.fx effect by pressing the CHANGE EFFECT... button.

When your filename has the text "normalmap" or "bump" in it (like for example "my_very_first_bumpmap.jpg") BluffTitler automatically loads this effect.

awhile ago, Bragina, communicated on a program which I used a while.
This results are spectacular.
the book Memories Lamp animation, using texture made with this program, on the floor and walls.

Smart Normal is a Flash 10 / Adobe AIR-driven, lightweight normalmapper supporting condensed and sobel-filters and can be downloaded and used local. It can be used with any picture or texture to create normal/bumpmap that BluffTitler can render when using the BumpMap.fx, ReflectiveFloor_BumpMap.fx etc effect.

I also use the free Genetica Viewer that includes hundreds of quality seamless textures that can be rendered and used with BluffTitler as backgrounds or text textures. All Free
