TR's Third Dimension v1.7.13+ (Aug 30th, 2015 )

Recommended Posts

Absolutely Brilliant! B)
Really extends Pdn's capabilities (deserves a 'pin' IMHO).
Great tutorial video. :music:
Very impressive images by Drew and NN79 too.

Here's one I made earlier (TR kindly let me test this before release).

Thanks TR.


Another awesome plugin by you ( after random shape filler). I hope this will be very useful, especially for those who use paint.net for make illustrations for games  etc.  :)


@NN , @Seerose, @DD awesome illustrations :D


@Red , Mind Blowing image!!! Can't imagine how did you made this. This plugin can make a lot of stuff. I will need some time to get used to this.



Just a few tips I will like to give for using this plugin :)


1. This plugin can load textures and height map independent from each other but you can achieve special effects if you use same image as texture and its black & white version as height map. In other way, you can have textures dependent to the height map. It can help in having different type of texture and color for different height in 3D render.


2. The plugin has Tilting capability but it doesn't rotate render sideways. That's because gray-scale image (black n white height map) can be rotated itself by user. So, it is advisable to open height map in another PDN tab and manipulate it as needed. We can rotate height map, apply some adjustment to it and manipulate it. Save the height map in other tab and run the plugin again.


3. Texture isn't the only thing that you could use with height map. You can use it like Shape3D plugin, and 3D Object plugin from evan's pack. By this plugin, you can map(or wrap) an image in those complex patterns which are not possible in these plugins. For applying the effect for a layer use TR's export selection to save layer (or any way you think of saving a layer separately) and then use this saved layer as texture for height map while running plugin.


4. Well height map can be colorful also. You can also use colorful images in height map and render it with mesh selection. :D


Have fun :D :D :D

Don't you ever sleep Mr Plug-in generator?  Amazing stuff - how you do it is really intriguing.  Wow - beautiful images from everyone, each one different in every way.  Apologies as mine is a little simple in comparison :( .

I have a problem with the plugin. I downloaded and installed it but when I try to use it the UI appears as it should with my chosen image showing but none of the controls work. I can`t adjust anything or tick any boxes . The only things that do work are the OK , Cancel or the red `x' at the top right hand corner. Very strange.



I have just had a thought. Does this plugin require a dedicated graphics chip to work? I only have integrated and I know how limiting that can be with 3D work. I had to give up on Blender, Sketchup and Terragen because of this crappy laptop.

Hi Goonfella,

You need to press the 'get height map' button before the other controls become useable. ;)


Thanks Red. Should`ve paid closer attention to the video! :P


Great images posted and all so quickly! Sign of a really great plugin.

Here is mine, called Cabbage Patch for obvious reasons.

Cool plugin TR, I can see many possibilities with this. Here is my first play around with it, Red's Cobweb spiders in TR cages.     :D





All the images are great but Goonfella takes the prize with his Cabbage Patch, awesome image,looks like an alien patch.   ;)

Thanks for coming to GoonFella's aid, Red. I knew you were going to master the 3D, I could tell by your test images. Cool Village.


Very Cool Llyod thanks for the tribute.


Awesome, Goonfella!!! What was the base image? Wait don't tell me that's like spoiling a magic trick.


Cool concept Skully, I'm liking the variety of the art.

Go out there and be amazing. Have Fun, TR
