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.

Paint Shop is not the same as Photoshop.

Hi, I love this tool so much, and GCFScape as well. Your tools are vital and integral and have done me damn well have the years. The photoshop plugin in particular makes things so easy and simple.

I had an idea recently that combining the vtf plugin and the vmt editor of vtf edit would be immensely awesome, and make everything perfect in the world. If you could have a mode where it would auto generate a vmt with each mask/texture used being selectable from either image as a whole, a layer, a channel, an already existing file, or a new blank file the process for making a material for source would be ever so painless. Creating a new material of any type the user wants would be as simple as saving the psd file with a preset loaded, or, for more specialized stuff, setting the paths manually.

Anyway, if you need a project I think that would make a good one :D

Argh. I extract the .dll thing to my Photoshop folder, but it says "... Error opening file!" and then "Couldn't extract correctly". The plugin was extracted fine, but the other wouldn't

Hey, I've been using this wonderful file format plugin for around 2 years now with Photoshop CS4 running on 32bit Vista. Loved it.

I recently got a new PC running 64bit Windows 7 and Photoshop CS5. I now find that neither this, nor the Nvidia normal map filter will work.

Any ideas on how I can get them working? This has severely slowed my productivity.

Sorry thepkhunter, I would have to create a 64 bit version of the plug-in which I have no plans to do because I do not own a 64 bit version of Photoshop to test it on.

Hope you get a 64-bit version soon nem!! xD

@thepkhunter: just use the PS 32-bit version that installs alongside PS 64-bit. I know its kind of a stepping stone, but hey....it works! xD

There seems to be a bug in CS5 where saving a new vtf from a psd will not save the alpha layers even when set to do so. The only way I can save an alpha channel now is to paste the channels into a preexisting vtf with an an alpha channel and merge the layers so that photoshop considers it a vtf still and Save As... isn't necessary.

sad this doesn't work on ps cs5 x64
can you make an update soon for it?

Tried opening Portal 2 VTF files in both Photoshop and VTFEdit. They both turned up an error. But VTFEdit's was seemingly more informative:

"File version 7.5 does not match 7.0 to 7.4"

It would appear they have updated their format to 7.5, so both the plugin for photoshop and VTFEdit need to be updated to be able to use them.

Just a heads up I guess! :D

Hello Nemesis,

Can you update this plugin to support vtf 7.5, please?

117. civanTPosted: Jul 14th, 2011 - 5:18:27 pm
Sorry if this was mentioned before but there is a problem with the plugin. After I save a file as VTF, all other saves use the same options no matter what you choose while saving. For example if I save a texture as normal map, then save something as a compressed texture second one still be saved as normal map.

Any help appreciated handwalking

Thanks for the plugin. I am using Paintshop pro X3. Had problems until I copied the VTFLib.dll from your latest VTFEdit app into the plugin folder.
For anyone looking for their plugin directory here is where I found it on my computer "C:\Program Files (x86)\Corel\Corel PaintShop Photo Pro\X3\PSPClassic\Languages\EN\PlugIns\"
