First Digital Painting App Controlled by Motion Gestures

OTTAWA, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 02/27/13 --

Editors Note: There is a video associated with this press release.

Corel today announced Painter® Freestyle(TM) Beta, the world's first motion-enabled digital art app for Leap Motion Controllers, to be showcased at South by Southwest (SXSW). Using a motion sensor, Painter Freestyle lets you paint with your fingers and control basic tasks such as selecting brushes, media and key commands, simply through gestures (no mouse or keyboard required!). Painter Freestyle is powered by the Corel® Painter® engine and includes several familiar brushes for artists of all levels to easily get started.

Pushing the Boundaries of Digital Art

"As pioneers in the digital art world, we're always looking for ways to push the boundaries of digital art and to bring new forms of expression into the digital art experience. By integrating the Leap Motion technology into Painter Freestyle, we've built a completely new, but very natural and expressive way to paint digitally," said Andy Church, Senior Product Manager for Corel Painter. "We're eager to see how this new technology will evolve the digital and performance art worlds. By introducing a beta version of Painter Freestyle, we're able to listen to hobbyists, professionals and new artists, which will help us create an optimal user experience for our full line of art software."

"Leap Motion is excited by the application Corel is developing-tools that help people create digital art are a natural fit with our vision for using motion-control technology," said Andrew Miller, President and COO of Leap Motion. "As Leap Motion works to evolve the future of human/computer interaction and provide a fundamentally better computing experience, Corel's Painter Freestyle offers new possibilities for general consumers as well as artists by developing new brush capabilities, digital canvas interaction and forms of artistic expression."

Creating New Artistic Expression Capabilities

Motion control digital painting provides a more expressive and natural way to paint or draw with the computer. Whether art is a passion, career or hobby, Painter Freestyle expands your creative possibilities and is an entertaining way to experiment with digital art.

"The seamless Painter Freestyle experience with Leap Motion makes the process of digital painting all the more attractive and accessible to people-it's simply so much fun!" said Jeremy Sutton, Corel Painter Master. "As a professional artist, I can make marks in Painter Freestyle that simply wouldn't exist otherwise with any other tools or media. For instance, the use of multi-strokes, essentially paint coming out of our fingertips, is something that could only have been dreamt of previously. This is not just an incremental improvement in a paint medium or art tool. This is truly a dramatic paradigm shift that will revolutionize the way we create and interact with the computer."
