macOS Apps/Updates

Escape Motions has released Rebelle 3, an upgrade to the natural media application. It adds the following features:

  • “Ultra-realistic papers”: you can use not only textured paper backgrounds, but also an imitation of real watercolor papers, some of them with deckled — rough and irregular edges, including: hot press, cold press, rough, Japanese, canvases and others.
  • Watercolor simulation code re-design: To adapt to the new papers, a watercolor simulation code has been rewritten to be even more realistic than ever before.
  • A new DropEngine: aAn implemented engine enables more realistic paint drying and dripping. You can blow drops and create watercolor dripping effects.
  • A Masking Fluid layer. The masking fluid allows you to paint freely over the masked area. 
  • Straight line, Ruler and Perspective tools.

Rebelle 3 is available for macOS and Windows for $89.99. There’s a 50 plus discount for existing Rebelle users.

Ben Software has rolled out SecuritySpy 4.2.4, an update to the multi-camera video surveillance software for the Mac.
