Hello, the system does not work well with the 2017 version. When will it be compatibilized?
We are working on core changes that allow forward and backward compatibility with Unity 5.6 and 2017. We'll drop a message in the forums when it's available on our website.
Hello again @nu-assets !!!
Some time ago I sent you some errors that happened to me with MapLab. One of them was that on many occasions the file albedo was exported in black.
Also the file textureName_e.png exports it to me 512x512 although I have in the export options 1024x1024
I downloaded the latest version of your asset, but it does not solve the problem.
I am testing it on a new project compared to the one from the other time. Working under Windows, version of Unity 5.6.1p2
The thread in the Unity forum where we talk about this is. I am the user "ftejada":
I repeat, The albedo exports me in black and without that I can not work on my project.
I am looking forward to your response. a greeting
A first Unity 2017 version can be downloaded from our website. If you encounter some bugs/issues/funny things, just drop a post/email.
Amazing, thank you
I get this error in Unity 2017.1.0f3

Hi @nu-assets !!
What is the maximum texture size in the Input that Map Lab supports ???
Is that I'm trying to load in the Input a texture of 6144x2694 but I get an error and Unity Crashea ... I leave photo
I have tried with 1K textures and the problem also happens and the crasheo....
Map Lab version 0.7.2 of the Store and Unity Version 2017.1.0f3. I only have Map Lab imported into the project
Does this also happen when lowering the preview resolution or when starting with a one-channel preset (e.g. single normal map)?
Hi @nu-assets !
I do not know what you mean. I leave you two videos with the process until crashea
On the other hand I think normal maps are not being generated correctly. I leave here a normal map made with another tool and two normal maps made in MapLab with different parameters.
I do not know if the other maps were generated correctly ... I guess some do not like the heighMap. How can we solve this problem?
A normalmap never looks the same. Basically, there's no right or wrong normalmap (besides actual erroneous maps). It's mostly a question of the frequency filters and gains. On the example that you have uploaded the map has strong gains in the mid and high frequencies.
I've made a short test with Unity 2017.2 with 3 frequencies of the source image.
Hi @nu-assets ! thanks for the video
I am trying to do what you show me in the video but another new problem arises.
This time it's with Unity 5.6.1p2, since with Unity 2017 I'm still crashed by Unity when I put in "Input" a texture .. the problem I mentioned above.
Now the problem that it gives me is that when I try to open the "add filters" window, it stays loaded eternally and never ends ...
How do I solve it from "addFilters and what of the crash in Unity 2017?
On the other hand, I have been working with Map Lab for several hours and other things, and again the same error has arisen that the albedo is completely black. I have tried to reimport MapLab back to the project, but it has not solved it...
I am using the latest version of the asset store ... I thought that problem was already solved ...
Please, please tell me what we can do to solve it.
Unfortunately, we couldn't reproduce the crash in Unity 2017. Have installed the latest drivers for your GPU and OpenCL drivers for CPU? What PC setup (GPUCPU, RAM, etc), do you have?
What happens if you reopen the "Add Filters" dialog?
What do you see when opening the Plugins Settings?
What happens when you manually reload the plugins?
The crash problem only happens to me in Unity 2017 1.0f3. I tried Unity 5.6.1p2 and there, no crash ...? I understand that it should not be because of driver problems?
The data of my pc are:
Nvidia Geforce 690
On the other hand, as I mentioned in my last post, the problem of the totally black albedo, which we talked about in September, began to reproduce again. I use the latest MapLab version of the store. I am working with the Unity version 5.6.1p2, until the Unity 2017.1.0f3 crash problem is fixed.
Hello, I already own this awesome and well done Map Lab, but have not had time yet to learn how to use it
I wonder if this asset can be able to make a high quality transparency shader as shown on this other thread
Thanks very much for any possible help
Even if I own other well-known independent 3rd party software for this, I'd really be interested in purchasing, since it's built-in right in the editor!
What's holding me back is that I haven't seen any update or reply from the author since 2017... and I'm using Unity 2018.2.4f1.
Could anyone (better if the creator) please tell me if it's still working with no warnings and if the asset is still mantained/ supported, and if the roadmap is empty or not (if it's "complete", or there's the will to add/expand it in the near future?)
It's still supported. Last compatibility test has been performed on 2012.2 . Currently, it does not receive any new feature but bug fixes. The actual (long-term) roadmap can be found here. I'll drop you a voucher code in PM for an evaluation version that can be downloaded from our webshop. We have seen some hardware setups that have caused problems with some specific drivers versions, but this is independent from the Unity version.
That would be greatly appreciated, thank you
Hi, is map lab running in 2017.4 I brought it in to my scene and I'm getting a lot of errors.
I just purchased the plugin on Nov 23rd, and I'm using it in Unity 2017.1.5f.
I noticed that the package is distributed as DLLs.
For the most part the plugin works, however loading and saving does nothing. It simply loads an empty project every time. I suspect this has something to do with losing what the input sources were.
Are there any automated filters that will help remove shadows from a Diffuse texture to make it more appropriate to use as an Albedo?
Is there support coming for Unity 2018 or the HD Render Pipeline Standard materials?
For instance the Mask Map has the Metallic in the R, the AO in the G, the Detail in the B, and the Smoothness in the A.
I'm also wondering if its possible to programmatically automate the conversion of standard textures to PBR?
Thank you for reporting this.
Yes. Use the Luminance Shift filter for this kind of tasks.
You can already define custom output textures and channel assignments. There will be an official preset once of course.
Map Lab has currently no convenient API to programmatically automate texture synthesis and creating. But I can think of putting this on the official roadmap.
I hope this was helpful.
Have a great day!
Hi i want to purchase Map Lab but what actually is the highest version of unity it work on?
It's tested on Unity 2018.2
You can drop us an email to get access to the evaluation version.
Okay, thank you What is the email?
Is it dead now? Looks like no updates for over a year.
Hi, is this still being developed? Any updates planned? I used this years ago and was so impressed. I can't seem to get it to work in 2019.2 or 2019.3. I'll try to get it going again in 2017 or something in the meanwhile...
There's an updated planned and a standalone app that will be free for all Unity Map Lab owners.
Any update on time frame?
The standalone app development is currently on-hold. We'll keep you informed!
But what about updating to work with modern versions of unity?
Its now 2022 . Does Map Lab work with 2020 LTS or 2021 LTS ?
