Intuitive Onscreen Controls
If you are used to working in Photoshop then DreamSuite will make you feel right at home. DreamSuite features advanced onscreen image transformation tools, full support for layer transparency, layering multiple effects ontop of each other and much, much more. In DreamSuite each effect has a set of controls that allow the user to adjust the effect's visual settings. Any onscreen tools associated with an effect are tied to the effect controls so the user may draw onscreen with an effect path and then adjust the controls that affect just that path.
All DreamSuite effect controls generate dynamically so you can interactively adjust the visual onscreen with the tool and the effect updates. In the example screenshot above the Crease paths each have different control settings associated with them. When you select an effect path, for example, the controls on the control bar change to reflect the current settings for that path. You can relocate the path, transform the path, or adjust any setting associated with the path and then the visual will update itself to the new parameters.
Some productivity and control features are:
CONTROL INTERRUPTS As you adjust controls the effect updates itself automatically. An intelligent control interrupt system allows you to interrupt the effect if it is updating itself.
ADVANCED PREVIEW SYSTEM DreamSuite's adjustable preview features a 1600% marquee zoom capability with built in panning support. Previews can be shown in Proxy mode so they render blazingly fast regardless of the image size.
SAVE AND REPLAY YOUR SETTINGS Save and Load your effect settings for instant replay Presets are Resolution Independent. Save them while working on a large file and they apply the same to a smaller file or an even larger file and get the same results.
MEMORY DOTS Click a memory dot on the interface and DreamSuite remembers your current settings. You can explore with your design ideas and come back to where you were with a single click.
DYNAMIC IMAGE AND EFFECT TRANSFORMATION Effects and images can be freeform transformed multiple times with no loss to quality as DreamSuite always stores and works from the original image when generating effect layers. Everything is written dynamically so the user works in a true non-linear fashion and can go forward or back by adjusting the controls.
INTELLIGENT PHOTO PLACEMENT TOOL DreamSuite features a unique photo placement tool that allows you to place images inside of effects and have the images automatically scaled and orientated to match the angle and perspective of the effect it goes into.
FILE OPEN AND SAVE SUPPORT DreamSuite features file loading and saving support for: .psd, .tif, .bmp, .jpg, .gif, .png file formats. Saving in Photoshop format will export the effect layers into a single transparent layer in a Photoshop native document.
HELP ON DEMAND DreamSuite lets you hold your mouse over a control for a few seconds and a floating window appears that contains comprehensive detailed instructions about the control. This powerful feature gives you instant access to control information without the need to look in a manual or use a separate help system that takes you away from the task at hand. The DreamSuite tool tips are fast and efficient to use.
