Title: free update patch 4.0b for Project
Date: San Diego,
CA, March 18, 2007
TheBest3D.com has released PD Pro 4.0b, a free update patch for
users of PD Pro Digital Painter v4.
*** What's new in
This is a maintenance release which fixes a few known shortcomings and
- The Palette-from-buffer plugin is now more of
a palette arranger, with the ability to create spreads, i.e. a
range of colors from existing two colors (start to end). You can also
click to change a single color on the palette plugin.
- Two additional filters are now explicitly
multithreaded and should run even faster on multi-core systems:
Value only contrast, and color noise.
- Fixed some bugs on the Animation Timeline's
group of filters to 'Composite with Image Sequence':
support for BMP sequence is now more robust and no longer has conflicts
with the Undo system. Cell edge composition lets you recomposite cell
edges after doing ink and paint. (great for cartooning, Anime,...) For
one of the filters, the name was changed to cell edge to reflect its
intended use in cell animation compositing.
- The Snowfall filter now also has a value
slider, as a new feature. It lets you change the brightness of the snow
particles. In the past, they were white only, and hard to see against a
bright sky background. Now you can also make dark raindrops with it
(when using high velocity at the same time). You can also keyframe the
brightness and other values for dramatic effects, such as shockwaves.
- a bug has been fixed with particle brushes in
'Brush' style. When the image was zoomed in or out (i.e. different from
100%), the particles would previously appear at positions different
from the mouse pointer. The remapping has been fixed, so that it's now
possible to work with particle brushes in 'Brush' style even while
