Autodesk SketchBook Pro Designed for use with tablet PCs or digitized pen tablets, Autodesk® SketchBook® Pro painting and drawing software is your digital sketchpad. It is easy to use with fast, reactive drawing and productivity-enhancing tools that help you express your ideas freely and boost production. Use it in any design process where pen and paper would traditionally be used, including:
* Product concept design and ideation
* Character studies
* Set and level designs
* Annotation and review
Paint User Interface
The user interface is easy to learn for new users and fast and efficient for experts. Customizable marking menus give one-flick access to key tools like colors and brushes. Intuitive on-demand controls zoom, pan and rotate the canvas. Straight-edge and ellipse templates capture perfect strokes. Floating tools change your brush size as you work—without opening the brush editor.
Create nontraditional brushes to add texture to an image, enhancing the creative drawing process beyond what is possible with pen and paper. Create and save your own brushes, erasers, airbrushes, or smear brushes. Vary the size, transparency, roundness, slant, and stamp spacing. You can also specify your own image as the brush stamp to create custom texture brushes.
Quickly load and view images and digital photographs. Use brushes to mark up and add comments.
Integrated email lets you instantly send sketches and annotations to colleagues and clients. New email messages are created automatically in your default email program with the current image attached.
