VTF Plug-In for Photoshop - NemPosted: May 6th, 2005 - 3:08:47 pm

VTF Plug-In is an Adobe Photoshop 6.0 and up file format plug-in for the .vtf file format. It is a simple plug-in that supports single-frame/single-face, 3 or 4 channel .vtf files in any format. It is designed for typical .vtf creation and viewing and does not contain the advanced features found in VTFEdit. Nonetheless, it can be a useful tool for creating simple .vtf files. The plug-in does not support 64 bit versions of Photoshop.

and i would like to know if there will be a plug-in for Fireworks CS3 9.0 , it didn't seem that hard (Photoshop-Fireworks are both Adobe Products)

If it doesn't already work with the product (have you tried it), never. The new Adobe CS SDKs are limited to partners (it costs $195 US to join). I'm therefore limited to the last free release of the SDK (which is terrible). If someone wants to buy me a licence, I'll consider it.

Well I had a hdd crash and am in the process of getting everything re-installed. GCFscape won't work, so I'm using 1.3.1. The vtf plugins aren't working either. I've tried multiple installs of .Net 2, including one that came with my video card disk, and from MS.


It's weird because my vtf thumbnails are working fine in explorer, just not in PS. There was an error but forgot to get a screenie, something about VTFlib.dll. I'm not getting the error now, but still no thumbs. Any ideas?

51. NemPosted: Jun 10th, 2007 - 1:29:55 pm
There is a conflict when you use both the PS VTF Plug-In and the Shell Extensions. The Plug-In installs VTFLib.dll to your PS directory and the Shell Extensions to your system32 directory. When you view thumbnails in PS, the Shell Extensions use the wrong VTFLib.dll (which is OK if they are the same version, but it sounds like they aren't).

Not much I can do about this, the Shell Extensions are Jed's. You might want to check if there is an updated version that uses the latest VTFLib.

I almost have it sorted. For now anyway. Just uninstalled vtfedit and deleted vtflib.dll. Also just for kicks had an older version of jed's vtf plugin (1.1) so reinstalled that too. So the only vtflib being used is in the PS folder, so it's at least working, both 7.0 and 8.0. Still use 7 mostly since it's blazingly faster to start up.

No luck on gcfscape tho, still having to stick with 1.3, which isn't all that bad just 1.6 looked purtier. Tried everything I could think of, inluding trying different visual basic runtimes that I'd had on a disk, same place I had jed's plugin and all the old PS plugins. No luck.

The 1.1 thumbnail plugin didn't come with a vtflib.dll. The 1.3 version does, and I guess that's what the problem was. (yeah reinstalled vtfedit as I was typing this and jed's 1.3 comes with vtflib.dll 1.2.3, yours is 1.2.5) So anyone else having trouble just stick with 1.1 for thumbs, since it apparently doesn't need vtflib at all to work right. Worked fine for me without it anyway.

-edit- bleh, just noticed jed doesn't have archives up from what I could see. Anyone needing 1.1 shell extensions let me know if you can't get a hold of jed or something.

It doesn't seem to work on Adobe Photoshop 7.0 the .vtf files don't appear in the "open" menu...

55. TechfreekPosted: Sep 3rd, 2007 - 10:04:37 am
It does not seem to work on Photoshop Elements 5.0, I tried your instructions for Photoshop, and when that failed I tried your instructions for Paint Shop Pro out of desperation, am I just completly missing something?
