Flame Painter4.1.5

09 July 2020

Procedural painting program.

Overview

Flame Painter 3 is a unique paint application that lets you easily create original artwork, light effects, unconventional design or beautiful backgrounds with flame brushes.

Flame Painter was created within 'I am an Artist' experimental project. The initial vision was to create an application for professional artists as well as for people without artistic skills who want to create original paintings. It is used by thousands of professional CG artists, designers, enthusiasts or children in school and we have had nothing but great feedback.

New features in Flame Painter 3 include Flame Painter Connect - a Photoshop plug-in which works as a live link between Flame Painter and Photoshop, ability to use Wacom tablet pressure pen and Leap Motion camera and a smooth import and export of layered PSD and SVG vector files. Multi-core engine, new high resolution renderer and Photoshop blending modes have made this software a powerful tool for creating professional artworks.

Important: Every Flame Painter user is eligible for 33% discount ($30) on Pro edition. If you'd like to upgrade, go to the Flame Painter Menu: "Help" --> "Upgrade to Pro" and you will be redirected to the website with all necessary information. Professional edition has many advanced features and can be used for commercial purposes.

I downloaded the demo, then purchased the full version through MacUpdate. The email arrived with "If you have downloaded the demo version..." etc. When I click on this link I get a screen that says" 403 Forbidden nginx/1.0.10" and there seems to be nothing more I can do. How to proceed????

It doesn't work. The link is only to the demo version so I paid for a free demo version.

As far as I can tell there's no way to upgrade from this to the Pro version without having to pay full price.

One fine software that has me come out with creative images that I never imagined I could have done. I am glad I came across this software which has sparked that creative spirit in me again. I do a lot of photography and this will surely help me with my own creative backgrounds. Love this with a 5 Star. Kudos to the developer for making it available at such an affordable price. The software itself is very easy to use if one understands how to create art. It has a smooth flow and although I would have loved it to have an option to set the canvas size and also an option where I could re-size it to the pixel size of my choice. But I guess all this would kick up the price and I would still go and upgrade it for the new price. Stability is not an issue although I lost it a couple of times, but I can't blame the software itself as yet as I guess I guess I was doing too many things on my Mac at the same time and will give it a benefit of the doubt. If I do find any issues again I will come back with an update. BTW I am just a hobbyist and nothing commercial about me LOL.

$29.99 for the Personal Edition (only 3 layers…) $59.99 for the Professional edition (unlimited layers…) IOW: The price currently listed on this page ($397) is incorrect. See the developer's site for details. Looks like an excellent app.

The MAS version of this app appears to have been abandoned (no updates past 1.5.1, no links to the MAS on the developer's web site), yet the developer has the audacity to keep selling it there, even promoting it today via TwoDollarTuesday. I think it's unethical for developers to continue selling software on the MAS, unless there is some kind of feature parity between the same product sold via other channels. I understand completely that Apple's approval process and sandboxing requirements often make it impossible to sell up-to-date or fully functional apps on the MAS, but at some point, it becomes false advertising to present such a product to the public. At the least, put a disclaimer in the MAS description letting people know what they are getting, and if they want the full experience, to purchase it directly instead. There are a lot of less tech savvy people, who hear about a software product, but instead of getting the details direct from the developer, they blindly depend on the MAS, and end up with a much worse product. Either keep apps up to date, or delete them from the store.

I purchased this software on 12 March, 2013. It will not run, I get 7 error messages and then it crashes on startup. It is still within the 5 day grace period and I want my money back. I have notified "support@escapemotions.com" via 3 different email without response from them. Even sent them the error messages, nothing. So MACupdate, please send my refund back to my card.

Will the App Store version of this application get updated? I purchased Flame Painter from the App Store almost a year ago and there have been no updates. It's currently at version 1.5.1 from November of 2011 - I'd like to upgrade to 1.7.1.

This is one of my favorite programs (and I own a lot)!!! Very responsive program with an infinite number of possibilities. I especially like the transparency option, makes great folder icons. Try it and you’ll love it!!!

This software is just great. You can create countless number of different images. I can imagine that professionals are able to make real artworks there. But I appreciate that my children love to play with it and it is not a waste of time for them.

I'm really liking this app so far, although I haven't had a chance to put it through all its paces. The single comment on the Mac App store reported a concern about output resolution being limited to 800 x 600 pixels (not enough for serious projects) ... happily however, it's possible to set custom resolution when you open a new file, which seems to change the default for that session, although it resets to 800 x 600 when you close & reopen the app. Working at a higher resolution slows down real-time rendering, but you can set the preview resolution to half to speed things up without affecting the resolution of the finished file. The only glitch I've come across so far is that sometimes the brush "paints" over the canvas without me clicking to activate it; perhaps I've inadvertently set it to "auto" but I can't find an option on the tool board. Minor annoyance, since you can undo. Since I didn't buy this via the App Store, I can't make a review or comment ... perhaps the developer would like to clarify so that others aren't discouraged from trying it, since this app is definitely worth a look.
