Question LBA2 to LBA1 layouts

I was wondering if there is any way to transform an LBA2 layout with it's bricks into a LBA1 layout and put it in a library. Example: the lava layout from LBA2 in the Islands library of LBA1.

Thanks.

If so, can you explain it? I haven't really put much thought into this yet, but it might help us in the future.

Ok, I open factory and load the library I want. I select a layout and export it as bitmap. After that, I open my LBA1 library and create a new layout with the same structure than the one of LBA2 had, for example X=4; Y=1; Z=4. I open the bitmap in my image viewer (Irfanview in my case) and copy it to the clipboard. Then I paste it in the new layout I created in my LBA1 library and I remove the white color around it and replace it with the one in blank. You don't get the same colors exactly because of the different palletes that LBA1 and LBA2 have (the lava I took now looks like blood) but I believe you can change the palletes somewhere.

There is an easier way. OBrasilo (he recently changed nickname to Battler) was/is working on a program that can do the conversion between library versions automatically. I'm not sure what stage it is at, or if it has been actually released, but you can ask him.

Recently, like back in March.
I don't think he has been working on anything serious lately.

It's not precisely what you want, but LIC can convert all the bricks from LBA1/2 to the other by 'forcing upon' the other palette. As a plus it can make the conversion with extra quality, that means it doesn't blindly take the "closest" colors method, instead it applies dithering in order to maintain more accurate colors as the eye sees it. (However it often just make it worse)

If you want much of your procedure automatically and think it'll be very time-consuming, I maybe can aid in making an automatic converter. I doubt Obrasilo finished nor have planes on finishing his project anytime soon, I think he's quite busy.
