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.

Nope, sorry. sad

First of all, NEM, thanks for the wonderful site -- you've been a HUGE help already. I have a specific problem that I was hoping you or anyone could help me with. I'm trying to create a realistic cathedral scene (much like lost coast) and I've been able to get my custom transparent textures to show up in hammer and ep1 just fine thanks to your plug-in, but now I'd like the stained glass windows to affect the light that shines through them as well. I don't even know if this is possible...but is there a way to make the texture so that it actually transforms the color of the light that passes through it? Obviously, I could just create multiple lights to simulate this effect, but ideally I'd like to have the shapes of color in my windows visible on the floor where they shine through. Is there any way to do this?

How do you make a 8bi file?

64. JonnyRingoModified: Jan 10th, 2008 - 8:16:34 pm
i installed it correctly, but when i click File>Save As... i get "Could not save as "c:/....<imagename>.vtf" because image width is not a power of two."

to answer any one who might be wondering yes this does work in CS3. The installation is little bit tricky but can be done (i had to have windows do a search to find my Photoshop folder) The photoshop Folder is in the "Common Files" Folder in your Program files dir. your file path will look somethink this:
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Installers\aefc4.....501\Adobe Photoshop CS3\, from there just fallow the Read me that comes with the Archive Dl up top.

1) Close Photoshop.
2) Extract VTFLib.dll to your ..\Photoshop\ folder.
3) Extract VTF.8bi to your ..\Photoshop\Plug-Ins\File Formats\ folder.
4) Run Photoshop.

this leads to an error message when i open a vtf file: could not complete your request because hllib could not be initialized.

i used this plugin before but i've updated now to the new 2007 version and it seems to be broken :(

every time i try to save it comes up with this
'Canot save{File Name} because image width is not a power of 2'
i know some people have also had this problem but i tried what you told them and it still dosn't work

68. NemPosted: Apr 6th, 2008 - 12:01:33 pm
Here is an article describing powers of two. You need the image width and height to be a power of two (in pixels) before saving with the plug-in.

You couldnt make a Gimp version of this VTF plugin??? It's the only Photoshop plugin I've ever tried who doesn't work in Gimp :(

70. NemPosted: May 8th, 2008 - 12:45:43 pm
If The Gimp supports Photoshop plug-ins, perhaps VTFLib.dll is in the wrong location? Try putting it in your system32 folder if all else fails.

I haven't tested it with The Gimp at all and I'm hesitant to add another program to support. The primary reason for adding Paint.Net support was to provide an example of how to use VTFLib from other languages. Too many dependencies become a burden to maintain.

71. MNMPosted: May 8th, 2008 - 12:51:31 pm
Gimp only supports 8bf and not 8bi(or 1, dunno) but i'll try the system 32 thing :)

In the Images->Mode menu, make sure you are in RGB Color at 8 bits per channel. Then, in the channels tab at the bottom right, make sure you have a Red, Green and Blue channel with at most one additional Alpha channel.

74. psychodelicModified: May 15th, 2008 - 12:35:37 am
I did so. for me all is correct. but this error appears sad

Email the .psd to ryansgregg@hotmail.com and I'll take a look at it.
