PD Particles was available as a giveaway on September 28, 2008!
PD Particles is a software program for sketching, doodling, painting and drawing with particle brushes. It is loaded with features made for professionals, yet priced low enough for retired artists, students and hobbyists at all levels. If you like to draw and doodle, this is for you!
PD Particles is perfect for PC users with a passion for creativity. It is based on a standalone version of the award-winning particle painting system called OptiPustics, found also on Project Dogwaffle.
PD Particles also contains a number of fascinating natural fx brushes and can be used as a complete, self-contained painting program. However, it is primarily intended as companion to your existing favorite photo editing, imaging and painting tools and it is focused on the use of a particular category of brushes. It's great too for making tall grass, shrubbery and bushes or use on 3D billboard polygons!
This giveaway includes the full installer of PD Particles 1.0. A free update patch is also available at www.thebest3d.com/pdp as well as additional free plugins and companion tools such as Penny paint, a Spline based drawing engine made specially for cartoonists and anime artists with a fast hand.
Going well beyond the digital painting, PD Pro includes advanced animationtools with onion skins, brush keyframer and stroke player. Filters can be applied across video clips with keyframed values through the timeline editor. Lua scripting lets you make your own filters. PD Pro includes particle brshes and custom image based animated brushes. You can paint with video on video, and carry video across the particle trails. Insanity turns into art!
