Solved: Suite 2 NDO can't edit normal map

Tay
Tay
I'm just trying to learn NDO and so far I can't add details to a normal map. when trying to add a rectangle to a normal map, it just comes up with a box and generates a new entry in the layer system called 'rectangle'. very annoying.

i was trying to follow along with a video here



and can't get past 1:50 in the time. It won't add the rounded rectangle to the normal map.

should I be looking at Substance Designer instead? I've had nothing but struggle with Quixel.

    Hey there, Tay!

    What version of Photoshop are you using? May I ask what your system specifications are?

    Before we move on, let's try the new 2.02 patch. :smile: 

    http://polycount.com/discussion/161990/quixel-suite-2-02-is-released#latest

    If that doesn't work for you, we'll start getting the developers to work with you on fixing this problem!

    Try doing this instead: Create a new shape. Check the nDo window for this symbol:

     

    Click that, and see if it works for you then. :smile:

    ok. that got me the new normal shape. with some fiddling I found out I could transform it. Was the video author using keystrokes in addition to the visible mouse actions? I don't know much about shortcut keys in Photoshop. Anyway, I can progress from here. Thanks!

    It's very possible, Tay. Our apologies for the confusion. Good to see you're up and running! :smiley:
