LiveBrush - An Adobe Air Based Programn


In the Tool Settings panel, each tool and style has several parameters, or motion controls, that you can customize. The controls in this panel change dynamically depending on the active tool and/or style. The Layers panel is where you can set the opacity and color of a selected layer and the blend mode for that layer with the layers below.

The Livebrush.com website has a community forum where you can get support and inspiration. One of the most interesting areas in the forum is the Gallery & Showcase section where you can post samples of artwork created with Livebrush. The forum is also the place to share styles, decorations and projects. The ability to create, export and share your custom styles/decorations and import those shared by other members of the Livebrush community is one of the nice features of this software.

Each image is saved by default in its own project folder or can be exported in several formats including images, layers, styles and decorations. The Import feature allows you to import styles, decorations, images, projects and even a dynamic input SWF.

David Fasullo offers a free and pro version. The Livebrush Pro version is only $10 and gives you vector export, several preset canvas sizes and over 100 styles and decorations combinations. Because the software is based on ActionScript 3 and Adobe AIRR, it can be used on Linux, Mac and Windows but requires Adobe AIR to be installed on your computer.

If I were to make a wish list for this software, I would put a complete set of tooltips on the top of the list. Although some buttons do have tooltips, some important tooltips, such as for the tools themselves and the program interface, are missing. It would also be nice to be able to set a project's custom canvas size and resolution. Finally, this is a new software and the online documentation is just the bare bones. I'm sure this support documentation will improve with time.
