RealWorld Graphics Releases RealWorld Icon Editor 2006.1

Cerncice, Czech Republic (PRWEB) April 20, 2006

RealWorld Graphics released version 2006.1 of RealWorld Icon Editor, a professional icon authoring software for Microsoft Windows.

RealWorld Icon Editor is an integrated system capable of creating and editing raster images, Windows icons, and simple 3D models. The software is designed to enable a scenario, where user makes a 3D model, renders it to image, and generates an icon from the rendered image without ever leaving the application. The utilization of 3D models increases productivity; one 3D model can be used in multiple icons and the application provides realistic lighting, perspective transformations, and occlusions virtually for free.

Version 2006.1 brings new features that assist designers to create icons for the upcoming version Microsoft operating system, the Windows Vista. RealWorld Icon Editor 2006.1 can render reflective surfaces and apply projected shadows to images using an interactive tool – both of these effects are encountered often in Windows Vista icons. Application menu, toolbars, and window layout are context sensitive and can be customized by the end user or exported and shared among users.

“Once I got accustomed to working with RealWorld Icon Editor, my productivity increased considerably. Graphic design often involves a lot of trials and errors and RealWorld Icon Editor does a good job in eliminating the repetitive tasks here. I often found myself just pushing buttons, comparing the different renditions of an icon, and selecting the best one,” said one of the users of the application.

Vlastimil Miler, one of the authors, explained: “During development of the application, we have chosen the most important use cases, analyzed the tasks needed to perform each step of the case, and finally automated as much as possible in the application. The architecture of the application allows end users to make modifications to the scenarios and fine-tune them for their specific needs. The result is an application performing exactly what the user needs from it.”
