windows default iconBixelangelo Publisher's description

Bixelangelo is a paint software that records your drawings and saves them as sketch maps.

Bixelangelo is a paint software that records your drawings and saves them as sketch maps. It has been designed for use with BluffTitler DX9, but any software that can handle texture maps and DirectX effect files can use its output.
Create sketch maps with BixelangeloA sketch map is a texture map that does not contain colour, but time information: every pixel contains the time it has been touched. This makes a sketch map a recording of a handwritten text or drawing.

Amazing compression
With a 24 bits picture and a time resolution of 50 frames per second it is theoretically possible to store an animation with a duration of 4 days into a single bitmap. The limitations are that your can't use different colours and that you can't erase anything.

Supporting standards
Your drawings are saved as standard .PNG bitmaps and DirectX .FX effect files. This means that they can be used in any software that supports texture maps and DirectX effect files.

The following examples have been created with Bixelangelo and BluffTitler DX9 with no post-processing other than converting it to a Windows Media File (.wmv) with Microsoft Windows Movie Maker.

Animated handwritten texts
Record your handwritten texts with Bixelangelo and animate them inside BluffTitler. Your recorded text can be played back at any speed.

No matter how trembling your handwriting or sketches are, Bixelangelo turns them into smooth, perfectly connected curves! And if you don't trust your artistic talents, a picture can be loaded into the background for tracing.

Mixing 3D animation with sketching
With BluffTitler you can mix your animated sketches with 3D animation. This example combines a sketch mapped picture layer with a text layer.

Transparent glow
A nice additive glow can be added to your sketches! The mist has been created with the particle layer.

Create text-on-path effects with BixelangeloYour drawing can also be used as a path along which you can scroll a 3D text (or any other object).

Text following a path
This technique can be used, for example, to make your text follow the sensual curves of an outer space alien.

Roller coaster
Or how about this roller coaster?

Create EPS files with BixelangeloYour drawing can also be saved as an EPS file. This EPS file can be imported in any software that supports EPS files. The following 2 examples have been created with BluffTitler DX9:

Glowing Particles
A particle layer has been attached to a black sketch layer.

Silver Sketch
This sketch layer is rendered with reflection mapping.

Attached Picture
In BluffTitler you can attach a picture layer to a sketch layer with the menu item Layer > Attach Picture to active Layer.... This technique can be used to create the impression of a hand drawing the sketch.
