Normal Map Generation

Recommended Posts


I love paint.net I use it for everything.

The only thing I cannot use it for is generating a normal map for textures.

I tried using the plugin from this site but it keeps coming up with the following problem:

This plugin has encountered an error, and must be closed.

Because of the unpredictable nature of these types of errors, it is strongly recommended that you restart Paint.NET before proceeding. Otherwise, there could be further stability problems or data corruption.

[Error Details]

File: C:\Program Files\Paint.NET\Effects\NormalMap.dll

Effect Name: NormalMap.EffectPlugin

Full error message: System.TypeLoadException: Could not load type 'PaintDotNet.PdnNumericUpDown' from assembly 'PaintDotNet.Core, Version=3.55.3767.28609, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null'.

at NormalMap.NumericTrackbar.InitializeComponent()

at NormalMap.EffectPluginConfigDialog.InitializeComponent()

at NormalMap.EffectPlugin.CreateConfigDialog()

at PaintDotNet.Menus.EffectMenuBase.RunEffectImpl(Type effectType) in D:\src\pdn\pdn_35x\src\PaintDotNet\Menus\EffectMenuBase.cs:line 799

No idea what any of this means but yes it is installed properly. Put the .dll inside the effects folder and even used the exe to install it when it didn't work.

Any help would be great please write to me soon.
