Finally green light for Sprite DLight!

Sprite DLight just got greenlit!

Awesome news, everyone: Sprite DLight has just been greenlit by the Steam community!

This is what I just saw when checking the current stats (which I did several times a day):

Sprite DLight - Instant normal maps for 2D graphics on Steam


That means the tool will be available on Steam when it is done, and backers of the Lite and Pro versions will receive a Steam key for each license they acquired, in addition to a download link to the final product.

These news are very exciting and I would like to thank everyone who voted and/or helped to spread the word to make it possible.

Second Sprite DLight Tutorial online!

Video tutorial #2 on YouTube - Advanced normal maps!

The second Sprite DLight video tutorial is now available on YouTube.
It introduces some advanced techniques of normal map creation. 
How can the tool be used to create normal maps for tileable and partially tileable background tiles?
The tutorial also features batch processing and some clever techniques to get the most out of your game art. Enjoy the video!





Finally, I would like to encourage everybody to help me promoting Sprite DLight's Greenlight campaign on Steam.
The tool is currently #40 of 96 software titles and has a hard time to be found via the broken search system on the Steam Greenlight website. Any help is appreciated.
