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.

I have Photoshop 7.0 (Yes, its old. I got it free from my work) and I'm not sure how to save the transparent background. I'm trying to make a custom spray, so, any help is welcome. Thanks.

In order to save your .vtf with transparency, you have to add an alpha channel. See this tutorial for details.

Nem. So what?

When I try to save one of my texture, it says that it couldn't be saved because the image doesn't have 3 or 4 channels.
I have RED, BLUE, GREEN and ALPHA, and of course "RGB".
Why won't it work?
This has never happened before.

Dawlight I have the same problem, I'm using Photoshop CS3 maybe that's where the problem is? also it only happens with textures with alpha maps exhausted
hope nem releases a workaround as or something :)

Can one of you email me an offending .psd so I can check it out?

I'm having the same problem as Dawlight and shuy3n. I'm only using photoshop CS2 though, if that makes any difference.

Well, I would really like to see a plug-in for GIMP.

Great plug-in, i had to reinstall photoshop though and now i can't save the alpha channel anymore :(

Could this be because of the changes in v1.0.11?

EDIT: found a download of an very old version from 2005, alpha channel works perfectly fine with it.

Best regards

I have...get this... Paint Shop Pro 5 from like 1997? and it does not work with it. I installed Paint Shop Pro 8 and did a Saveas and your dialog box popped up and I was able to save. BTW, nice terrain generator.

I have Abobe Photo shop CS3 Portable version 10.0
whenever I open an image and look for the VTF format it is not there. I cannot save or open VTF files, instead I must use the program VTFEdit to switch it to TGA but I cannot change it back. When I downloaded the VTF plug-in for photo shop and read the read-me it said to put the two files into folders my photo shop CS3 Portable program does not have. If you have your own copy or know someone who does please give me the actual file I need to place the VTF plug-in pieces into. THANKS

Are there any plans to support CS4 x64?

88. Liquid DigitzPosted: Aug 2nd, 2009 - 4:30:15 pm
An x64 release would definitely be an asset to some, myself included. Till then, x86 version must be used for this. Constantly swapping between x64 and x86 versions though does become a hassle.

I have a problem, I made a picture with alpha channel, saved as Compressed Texture with Alpha. Then I opened this picture and noticed that alpha channel is fully white. I really need to make texture with translucent background...

I found the reason. Image MUST have 'background' layer.
