Brings new meaning to the term "programmer art".

Perhaps I'm really confused here. It seems like an awful lot of trouble to create flowery looking things.

Almost entirely pointless.

Why does this exist?

It's neat, but with the exception of a few things most of what was demoed can already be accomplished with Apple's Motion and/or Adobe's After Effects.

I don't mean to sound negative towards that app, it looks pretty cool, but I hope they intend showcase a wider feature-set than what is demoed in that video.

Thanks for the link though.

You guys are being pretty culturally insensitive. Mandalas (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mandala) are an important type of art for many the world over, even if not so much in the western nations. That being said, the program looks amazing.

yeah if you live in a pattern based art society where your not allowed to draw 'things' as they are in the realworld but have to make abstract patterens to adorne posters, books, web
and buildings then this is just the job app wise.

as above it's not intended for widespread use in the western world.

The program costs 25$?(I read it somewhere). So if you have a job that demands this then its a given.

It would be a great asset to photoshop. Cause photoshop doesn't have these kind of stuff.

Call me crazy but with some of the stuff in the video, the non-circular rotational stuff anyway, I can see it being an interesting and fast basis for non-procedural textures. The rotational symmetry could be used to decorate a jillion and one CG objects too, given that decorative art is everywhere from wallpaper to vases to clothes, even if it isn't a proper Mandala. Line up a few repeating shapes, use a warp tool to break the repetitiveness and work from there? I can already see it being used to speed up Celtic Cross designs.

I dunno, some people have no imagination :shrug:

The program reminds me of a 21st century version of Deluxe Paint for the Amiga, same basic tools.

i guess if you make mandalas this will be great? who knew there'd be a market for such a thing :P
