Genetica 3.6 LogoIt's strange, but to my shame previously I haven't heard of Spiral Graphics Genetica existence at all, or just didn't noticed it — quite unfairly, let me say.

After couple of years of waiting, hope and prayers now we have NVIDIA Plug-ins for Adobe Photoshop updated to version 8.5 with support for CS4, CS5 and x64 platforms ( that's it, plug-in will work in 64bit versions of Photoshop ). Now hobbyists and professionals from all around the world can stop jumping from Photoshop x64 to x32 and reverse if they need to create Normal Maps. Bye-bye, x32, we will never see you again xD.
