Vectoraster 8.3.0 released with new text raster modes

Today a new update for Vectoraster 8 has been released. This update adds new features that bring new possibilities working with text and font characters for point rasters, now allowing sets of multi-character words for the point shapes and more importantly a way to pick character or word based on a source.

This means you can define a set of characters or words and vary which one is used for each point actross the raster. Combined with all the different raster and point shape parameters already in place this gives you a lot of new possibilities!

8.3.0 changes:
  • New source-based text modes. Pick point text characters dynamically based on source layers. Paint by numbers or ASCII-art!
  • New word text modes. Use a set of words instead of just characters as point shapes. Make word clouds or generate data-driven labels!
  • Some changes for more consistent handling of fonts for text raster points and text source layers.
  • Fix a bug where changing the document random seed wouldn't update the seed for all random properties.
  • Fix a bug where the document random seed wouldn't be properly loaded from saved files.
  • Performance improvements.

Another update has now been released for Vectoraster 8. This update brings a couple of improvements to working with animations and keyframes in the animation timeline, fixes some issues in recent version with using source layer color for points and a couple of other little fixes and improvements.

8.2.5 changes:
  • You can now edit animation keyframes while the animation is running.
  • You can now quickly revert values being edited by pressing Esc.
  • Disabling a parameter that has an active animation track now also disables the animation track and adds a warning icon to it.
  • Removing a source layer or pattern distortion that has animated parameters now also properly removes these animation tracks.
  • Fixed a bug where removing the last source layer could leave an orphaned source settings panel.
  • Fixed couple of issues in v8.2.3 and 8.2.4 with using source layer color for point stroke or fill.
  • Changes to visibility toggle buttons for source layers and animation tracks to reduce interface clutter.
