New SketchBook Pro
Secret seven We ask the Autodesk team what to expect
Autodesk has unveiled plans to release SketchBook Pro 7 this summer.
“We were able to address a number of big customer requests,” says Autodesk product manager Toby-Lei Wang. One new feature is the Flipbook Animation, making it easy to create sketch animations. Elsewhere, there are improvements to the layer editor, with more blend modes and grouping, and performance improvements that will enable artists to work on 64-megapixel canvases. American concept artist Scott Robertson worked with Autodesk, conceptualising tool functions. “It's a very fluid sketching program,” says Scott, “with an elegant UI that can be quickly picked up by anyone. With the new tools, professionals can also push imagery created in the program to a much higher level.”
SketchBook Pro 7 is released this summer. For more information about the software visit www.sketchbook.com. For more from Scott visit www.designstudiopress.com.
SketchBook Pro 7 – developed with collaboration from Maya – makes it easier to create animation. Adding gradations, lighting effects and perspective drawing grids has expanded the sketch options.
