Spiral Graphics announced the release of its anticipated Genetica seamless texture maker. Genetica, the industry's first node-based texture maker to specialize in the generation of seamless textures, intends to dramatically improve the productivity of game designers, 3D artists and others.
Because of Genetica's flexible node-based system, all elements of a texture can be edited and rearranged in any desired order, leading to a significant increase in productivity. Since no change to a texture is permanent, costly mistakes are eliminated. In addition, Genetica will automatically see to the work of making textures seamless, allowing designers to focus purely on the texturing itself.
More than 200 fully-editable presets come included in Genetica, meaning designers don't have to start from scratch with each new texture. Genetica is resolution-independent, leaving designers free to quickly re-render existing textures at different sizes as requirements change.
For more information on these and other features offered by Genetica, a fully illustrated guided tour can be seen here: www.spiralgraphics.biz/gentour_index.htm
