3 weeks ago 7

Create vector-based raster patterns by relying on custom bitmap images and personalize their style with the help of intuitive configuration tools

What's new in Vectoraster 8.3.0:

New source-based text modes. Pick point text characters dynamically based on source layers. Paint by numbers or ASCII-art! New word text modes. Use a set of words instead of just characters as point shapes. Make word clouds or generate data-driven labels! See some examples at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pxtN4h6cY4s Some changes for more consistent handling of fonts for text raster points and text source layers.

Vectoraster is a straightforward graphics utility specially made to help you create vector-based raster patterns and halftones based on bitmap pictures.

Create stunning raster patterns and halftones starting from custom images

Vectoraster comes with a simple and intuitive interface from which you can quickly and freely configure the raster patterns and points shapes in order to generate numerous different styles. The best part is that the resulting raster is generated and displayed in real time as you adjust the parameters.

As follows, the left panel enables you to load a primary and a secondary source image, change the measurement method and adjust the offset and exponent value with just a few mouse clicks. You also have the option to adjust the document size and view detailed information about the generated raster.

Easily adjust the parameters and colors of the used pattern and raster points

Thanks to the right side panel you can switch between different shapes and change the edges, rounding, and contraction parameters. You can even customize the point size, outline, and color, and change the point aspect and rotation.

On top of that, Vectoraster helps you choose between different pattern types and manually set the spacing value. You can even transform the selected pattern and try different settings or apply distortion effects.

When you are happy with the generated raster, you can easily export everything to vector format via EPS and PDF files, as well as use the JPEG, PNG, and TIF standards.

Batch process multiple images or frames from a video

It is worth mentioning that Vectoraster comes with batch processing capabilities and, as a result, you can apply rasters directly to all images from a given folder or to frames in a QuickTime movie file.

To sum it all up, Vectoraster is a highly customizable OS X application that helps you create vector-based raster patterns with just a couple of mouse clicks.
