PD Artist is a digital paint program with fantastic natural media tools and colour mixing.
A full-featured and powerful natural media painter and image manipulation tool to bring out the artist in you. PD Artist features custom brushes, papers, fast gradients, realistic foliage painting, powerful colour mixing and colour themes, over 100 filters, batch processing, and a lot more. PD Artist is built on the same super-fast core engine as the one used in PD Howler and thus benefits from interface improvements, multithreading, SSE2 acceleration, speed enhancements and other optimizations found there, including some tools that use the GPU acceleration for 3D rendering. Most of the features of PD Howler are intact in PD Artist. Just the features used for working with animations or video have been removed. A few animation tools remain though, namely those related to creating and managing animated brushes. (which consist of image sequences too).
The goal with PD Artist is to make the creative tools affordably accessible to those who don’t work with video and don’t create animations but just want to paint and design still images.
PD Artist doesn’t do animations nor have the tools to work on video clips, such as frame editing. PD Artist is derived from the same code base shared by its big brother, PD Howler. We like to say PD Artist is a subset of Howler. Or think of Howler as a superset, going beyond PD Artist.
Some animated filters were removed. Some filters that had animation options were modified to exclude the animated portion. The Animation menu is gone. Tools and plugins made for animations such as the Timeline editor, the brush keyframer, the exposure sheet and frame painter, those are tools made for animation or post work on videos and thus were removed from the Artist edition. However, animated brushes are still included! You can still load an existing AVI video clip or an image sequence straight into the custom animated brush system in order to then ‘paint’ it over your artwork!
