So, for the past while I’ve been using Nem’s VTF plugin for Photoshop, and it works great. I had to replace a DLL with something from VTFLib at one point to get it to read newer files (Dota 2 etc.), but aside from that it ran fine.
The problem is that I recently installed Photoshop CC 2014, and it doesn’t include a 32-bit binary by default (you have to download it separately), so that side of things is understandably clearly being phased out. Unfortunately, the VTF plugin is 32-bit only due to being built with an older SDK. To make things worse, the source code was apparently lost some five years ago, so I can’t blindly grope around with the 2014 SDK and hope a valid plugin falls out the other side.
Is there an nice alternative out there that works under 64-bit Photoshop, or should I suck it up and keep a 32-bit install handy for Source Engine stuff?
