ArtMatic is a unique software. It enables endless voyages through never explored regions of an endless universe of visual creation.
It is constantly improved, with new features added.
At first, the results may be disappointing; but, sooner or later depending on luck, one finds places where to settle down and start exploring from.
Beautiful films can also be created very easily.
The support is incredibly quick and efficient (including during the week-ends)
Two things could be improved :
- although there are many ways to change the colors and edit large ranges of tones, hues and values, there are still mathematical constraints that won't let you do exactly what you would with a graphic software (eg have different colours for different zones that correspond to the same mathematical definition). Perhaps, an additional paint-tool could be associated to AM to overcome this limitation without interrupting the exploration.
- When exploring, AM allows memorizing some positions for later exploration or for including them as key frames of a movie. Unfortunately, their number is quite limited and their chronologic order cannot be changed.
One thing is desperate : sound !
Across 10 years using AM, I could never approach anything melodious or even harmonious. The techno sounds AM generates are just more or less absurd noises (as well illustrated with the examples in AM's site). Clearly the ear is much less tolerant that the eye.
