i think it would be better if demo was not limited only the object that is provided by the company. We need to test the software un der different conditions

You're right, but the thing is that terefore you would be able to save the textures using Photoshop and it actually would be a full version

Yeah but that's no way to efficiently and conclusively test a piece of software. That model is hardly a professional level model - the types of models I texture on a daily basis are complex, high resolution models. How can I judge whether or not this is a piece of software that will actually be useful to me if I cannot fully test it?

That's why many software trial versions are simply time-bombed, instead of functionally limited.

Actually you're right

Time bomb it and limit it to saving one 4096x4096 image... then I can give it a real shake.

A 15 day time bomb would be benficial, 30 is too much simply because it's a small app doing mainly one thing. Also a limit on the output size to something like 512x512, so it really won't be useful for production, or just watermark the outputs?

I'd want to be able to save at least one high-res image to test that the app can handle it.

I had trouble telling from their web site and videos, but does this app ONLY allow you to paint in the 2D view and NOT in the 3D view? In other words, is the 3D view ONLY for previewing the texture as you paint it in the 2D view?

Yes, you paint in PS and use PS as a Painting application and in Object Painter you preview all the changes automatically.

oh, so it works like this free thing?

Note I haven't actually tried this yet
