-----------------------------------------------------

GUIDE
1, Create a new C2 project.
2, Insert a sprite (use a 480 x 480 image), and add the effect to it.
3, Save the resulting image.(screen capture or print screen)

To use/test your Normal map.
I used 'NormalMapExt effect' by 'Donelwero and Matriax'
and the example capx found there, to test the results.

1, Replace the tiled floor 'sprite' with your sprite image.
2, Replace the tiled floor 'Height Map' with your new 'Height Map'.

@glerikud

I removed the link, because I spotted a problem with code (blue channel).
I have the solution worked out and will post the new link today or tomorrow.

sorry for delay.

So, this creates the normal map of the giving image? I guess, something like this program does: http://www.2deegameart.com/p/sprite-dlight.html ?

Instead of use print screen, why no add a paster/canvas plugin and with a button save the result as .png in the folder you want? This will make the workflow more fast.

This shader won't produce Normalmaps on a level with 'Sprite-dlight', but I have a managed to create
something similar(sort of) with another version of the shader I have been working on.
Here's an example pic of what it can output-

It's not as good as 'Sprite-dlight' but I have managed to recreate the 'raised bump' effect.

....All images are rendered in C2...
