Knald is the world’s first high-quality 3D texturing software based on GPU algorithm. It can generate 3D texture maps from 2D images, including Normal, Derivative, Displacement/Height, Ambient Occlusion, Concavity and Convexity maps. It’s easy to operate, real-time, and super-fast (almost no waiting) to generate textures.

As a professional and easy-to-use texture mapping tool, Knald combines quality and precision with extreme performance to deliver ultra-high quality results at an unmatched speed. Users don’t have to spend a lot of time and energy learning to use it to generate incredibly high quality textures from bakers or any 2D source textures such as photos and height maps.

Knald is designed primarily for use by game developers, but can also be used in the interactive, visual arts and product design industries. In addition to providing intuitive and visual operation parameters for making very realistic texture maps, it also has advanced data conversion technology, which can directly convert image data into various texture maps. In addition, all operations in the software can be previewed in real time.
