Everyone has been working their fingers to the bone to get Krita 2.9 in tip-top shape. For Beta 2, there was a large focus on squishing bugs, fixing crashes, as well as finding memory leaks. There are way too many changes to include everything in the release notes, so here are some highlights from the past month (as well as some fresh builds to get your hands on!)
The first release candidate for 2.73 is available now. Check the release notes. Aside of improvements in many areas (and 2D/3d vector animation!) a lot of work was done on stabilizing and fixing.
Turbulence Fluid Dynamics (TFD), from Jawset Visual Computing, makes high quality simulations of fire, smoke, dust and other gaseous phenomena (not fluids). TurbulenceFD is available for both Cinema4D and Lightwave 3D, along with a 2D version for After Effects.
PixelPuffin have developed a new tool for converting your 3D animations to Stereoscopic 3D inside Nuke. With a simple integration to your workflow, it gives you a fast way to generate left and right views, target multiple display sizes and create non-linear stereo effects.
Rohan Dalvi has created a 2-part video tutorial series on making procedural textures in Houdini (at a ghastly $25 per part pricing, what is there to think about?! and comes with scene files). We don't know about you, but the job boards have been filled lately with more Houdini artist positions, so it may be worthwhile to check out. See the preview video of the quality of textures that Rohan creates and judge for yourself.
Here is another alternative for your photo/graphics editor needs: PhotoLine, an all-purpose image and graphics editor. You can enhance photos, export pictures for web pages, or create PDF files for printing. And PhotoLine is offering everything, that is required for professional work: CMYK and lab color space, color management with ICC profiles, adjustment layers, and 16/32 bit depth per color channel. Aside from that you can import, edit and export vector graphics and PDF files.
