The world of vector editors is not very friendly for those just starting out: most of the options available, starting with the giant Adobe Illustrator, bring a steep learning curve, requiring several weeks of adaptation (or even training courses) on the part of user. So good, then, that at least one developer is trying to change that.
THE BeLight Software recently removed the cloths from its new vector graphic editor, called Amadine, and it draws attention for its accessibility and improved interface already in the beta version – the final version of the software should be released soon, along with an iOS application that is under development.
Amadine brings all the basic functions that a vector editor needs and goes further, with features that include more advanced users and even professionals. We have here a pen tool (pen) with multiple types of tracing, a freehand drawing tool (very useful for users using graphics tablets), a full color picker and a huge range of effects that can be applied to illustrations with just one or two clicks.
While in beta, Amadine will be made available to consumers free of charge; after the release of the final version, the software will become paid (although it remains to be seen whether BeLight will charge a one-time fee or market the service with a subscription model, such as Adobe). It is worthwhile, therefore, to test it soon to check its benefits and see if it fits your work or production style.
Amadine can be downloaded from its official website.
