Speaking of which, the following plugin must be installed to complete this tutorial: Height Field to Normal Map Step 1: open a new canvas at 800x600 (do this first then use a smaller canvas size, the smaller the canvas size the better the finished product). Step 2: Effects > Render > Clouds @ 250, 0.50, Difference Step 3: Hit Ctrl-F a couple of times until you get a lightningy-denty looking thing: Step 4: Go to Effects > Distort > Morphology @ 5, 5, Linked, Dilate: Step 5: Hit Ctrl-F to repeat the effect (CRITICAL STEP). Step 6: Effects > Height Field to Normal Map @ 6.5-8.0: Step 7: Invert Colors (Ctrl-Shift-I): then Black and White (Ctrl-Shift-G, Adjustments > Black and White), you should have something like this: As a finishing touch, you can Rotate/Zoom (Ctrl-Shift-Z) for a floory perspective.
