Welcome to the RealDrawPro mini wiki at Scratchpad!
You can use the box below to create new pages for this mini-wiki. Make sure you type

Now, for the first time, web and multimedia designers have the power to combine vector, 2D, 3D and bitmap editing in one easy to master drawing package. Real-DRAW PRO seamlessly and instantaneously moves from one form to another, eliminating time-consuming conversion operations and the need for multiple drawing packages.
You can create anything from simple web graphics, banners and buttons to complex interactive web page.
Works on Win 95/98/NT/2000/XP
Real-DRAW PRO is a uniquely intuitive and versatile graphics program with no limit to the quality and style of output. Create naturalistic 3D drawings using familiar 2D vector tools. Create airbrush illustrations, painted art, photo-realistic imagery, 3D scenes, photographic clones and web pages in one package.
Real-DRAW PRO combines many artistic creative methods into one application:
Vector Editing Any object you create is editable all the time. You can change shapes, group objects, move them in layers, resize, edit envelopes etc. Any object has its own changeable properties like color, texture, outline, lights, material, transparency, multiple 3D effects, bevels, shadows, motion blur and much more.
Bitmap Editing Unlike in a normal vector editor you can actually paint directly onto any vector object using airbrushes, 3D or Artistic brushes and special Image Nozzles. You can paint on the canvas and the strokes will become another object to which you can apply effects, just as with vector objects. You can even convert a brush stroke directly into editable vector polynome.Not many software packages gives you such freedom.
3D Effects You can apply various bevels and extrude effects to any object or bitmap to create perfect three-dimensional work. You can get even closer to rendered-like image by applying an unlimited number of 3D lights to any object or by changing its material properties. For example, Real-DRAW PRO makes it very easy to create realistic metallic textures - often a big problem in standard vector drawing packages.
Illustration Package The combination of Real-DRAW's tools allows you to create drawings in your style - illustrations, 3D render simulations, airbrush work, you name it - you have the control. WEB/Multimedia Graphics generator With Real-DRAW you can design a whole interactive graphics web page with roll-overs, functional links and directly export it using powerful HTML Slicer.
Then you can export it directly to Multimedia Builder or generate a script in any language you want - you can create HTML, XML, Java, Java Script or even a web page using CSS (Cascading Style Sheets).
SVG editor As if this isn't enough, Real-DRAW can also be used as an SVG editor (Scaleable Vector Graphics supported by all XML enabled web-browsers) with import/export support of color fills, outlines and transparencies.
Mega Render Design small, render big! A special Mega Render export module allows you to render the design into much larger image sizes if you need them. Mega Render will not just resize the image, but it will add more texture detail as well.
Export to Adobe Photoshop You can export the whole design into Adobe Photoshop keeping all the layers, transparency channels, shadow layers and layer names as you created them in Real-DRAW. You can also use MegaRender technology to export large - print quality work to Adobe PhotoShop.
Real-DRAW offers you many new and innovative methods such as bitmap cloning, blueprint with onion skin or Packaging, and Package Clones which divide projects into logical blocks that can be worked on individually.
Real-DRAW turns graphics tasks that usually take several steps (and often several programs) into simple jobs. What Can I do ?
What Can I do ?
Web Elements - you can do anything from Web banners and logos - to buttons or other art. You can create vivid graphics with cool effects like drop shadow, glow or lights. You can even choose from 'zillions' of procedural textures and color washes.
Web Page - build-in smart HTML Slicer allows you to create whole interactive web page with roll-overs and functional links directly in software. You can create a custom buttons for roll-overs or you can simply choose one of predefined effect if you are in hurry.
Design Cool Logos - you can be creative. With the ability to edit text the same way as the paths, you can make changes in the font itself. Use Transparency Textures to define interesting semi-transparent surfaces.
Multimedia Interfaces - you can create lifelike professional multimedia interfaces. With Web/Multimedia Button you can also assign to each object three different appearances - normal, highlighted and pushed. You can then export each frame to separate bitmap files or direct export to Multimedia Builder.
Ultra realistic, texture rich images, buttons, controls, text... - First time in 2D drawing package are objects so real that you can create the feel of stones, shiny metals, wood and much more. There are hundreds of predefined natural textures in the library and you can add your own.
Rendered-like images. Unlike other 2D drawing applications, Real-DRAW can apply unlimited number of various light sources and material properties on any vector object, text, or bitmap to add realistic feeling. You can create 3D looking scenes without the need to work in 3D. Actually it is even better, because it is all in Real Time.
Photographic-like Illustrations - Photographic-like Illustrations - You can hardly imagine a faster way to create amazing photo-realistic illustrations. It is much easier and the result are usually much better than creating them in 3D. The secret is in using lights and bevels. Just a few lights alone can create the feel of a 3D shape. The whole illustration on the left was created using only vector objects with lights.
Painted art - You can paint with brushes directly on the canvas or on any vector or bitmap object. You are not limited to basic brushes; you can use 3D or artistic brushes, or Image nozzles as well. It supports pressure sensitive tablets. Painting inside vector objects is one of the amazing Real-DRAW features. For example the fingers on the left were created as vector objects and then painted inside with airbrush. The result could be easily resized or reshaped.
Scalable Vector Graphics for web - you can design and export a vector drawing in web friendly SVG format (Supports colors, outlines and transparency). This is a text format (similar to html) and any new web browser with XML should be able to display it. The benefit of SVG is that the image is scalable and smaller than a JPG image would be.
Everything is editable all the time; you don't have to recreate the graphics again and again.
*The graphic images above as well as all graphics in this manual were created exclusively with Real-DRAW. They were never post-processed in any other image editor. However due to the size factor many images were heavily compressed and sized down so you may not see the images in their original sparkling quality.
