Dynamic Tiling Tools and Animations for Bliss Paint and Bliss Saver
Geometric Bliss is a dazzling kaleidoscope of interlocking geometric shapes, now including the amazing Bliss Saver screen saver engine. Color flows through the shapes with the trademark aesthetic of the Bliss family. Interlocking weaving patterns in hexagons and diamonds are the main types of patterns used, with several variations of repetition, reflection, and rotation.
In combination with Bliss Paint, Geometric Bliss lets users create new types of animations with engaging color animation and complex shapes not possible in any other software. Animations can be saved as PICT files or QuickTime movies for use in other graphic design, animation, multimedia and video projects. With Bliss Paint, Geometric Bliss adds to the library of visual effects for live video projection at music events--Bliss Paint can be controlled from MIDI instruments and sound input.
Greg Jalbert, founder of Imaja, says "Geometric Bliss brings a new range of visual expression to interactive animated color painting. These tiling patterns are a beautiful addition to the library of animated painting effects, and are sure to be a hit with graphic designers and performing video artists."
Included are 11 Scribbler modules that paint shapes in hexagon and diamond tiling patterns. Also included are two Distributor modules that can be used to place other shapes in hexagonal or diamond arrangements.
The Geometric Bliss plug-ins were created by mathematician/software artist Sarah Fruct of BirdTree Associates. The Geometric Bliss animations were created by artist/animator/programmer Greg Jalbert.
