I want to have custom vertex normals. I have a brief search, and found the official doc. It claims that Normal Edit Modifier can do this, and it is placed in Modify column of all modifiers. However, in my blender program, the Modify column only has:

  • Mesh Cache
  • UV Project
  • UV Wrap
  • Vertex Weight Edit
  • Vertex Weight Mix
  • Vertex Weight Proximity

So where is the Normal Editor? Is it being deprecated? Or replaced by other stuffs?

I'm using Blender version 2.73.

    $\begingroup$ I think Normal Edit Modifier was added in 2.74 $\endgroup$ – Denis Jul 29 '15 at 14:16

The modifier you are looking for Normal Edit is under the modify column in the modifiers list, but only in version 2.74 and higher.
As the release notes show that feature was added in 2.74.

This picture is showing version 2.75 modifier list
