Texturescape 1.5 is for designing background textures for illustrations. You create repeat patterns from Postscript shapes, then specify colour, spacing and lighting to get your final image. Because it’s Postscript-based, textures can be rendered at any size but are stored as 20K to 40K description files. Texturescape also allows you to morph textures together to make animated backgrounds for Quicktime movies and videos. Texturescape retails at Ãº132 from Gomark on 0171-731 7930.
