Spiral Graphics has begun accepting applications for the beta test of its upcoming seamless textures application, Genetica (formerly known as Organica). Genetica helps automate seamless texture creation, promising to expedite the workflow of game artists, 3D designers, and others using tiling textures or repeating backgrounds.
"Since first announcing Genetica, we have had a tremendous response from the design community," says A. R. "Atlas" Roufas, President of Spiral Graphics. "We hope our beta program is met with similar enthusiasm to help us better align Genetica with designers' needs."
An application for joining the closed beta program can be found online at http://www.spiralgraphics.biz/genbeta.htm
. As a thank-you, active beta program participants will be rewarded with a free copy of Genetica once the texture maker is officially released this summer.
Genetica is the world's first seamless textures generator to be built around a node-based engine, giving users unprecedented flexibility. Users make seamless textures by visually positioning nodes and adjusting values. Results tile automatically with no additional work required to blur out unsightly seams. An updated gallery of textures created with Genetica can be found at http://www.spiralgraphics.biz/gallery.htm
