Building on its strengths in compression and encryption, WinZip® 19 redesigned to offer an entirely new way to manage files in the cloud, protect privacy and simplify file sharing

MANSFIELD, CONNECTICUT--(Marketwired - Oct. 28, 2014) -

Editors Note: There are 3 photos and 1 video associated with this press release.

WinZip today introduces WinZip® 19 and WinZip® 19 Pro, powerful file sharing applications that offer an entirely new way to manage all your files - whether they're in the cloud or on your system - while making it simple to protect your privacy and share across email, cloud accounts and more. Redesigned to offer an optimized and highly visual experience, WinZip 19 and WinZip 19 Pro are more responsive and easier to use than ever. With the new WinZip 19, unified local, network and cloud file management, powerful privacy protection, and easy sharing have finally come together in a single app for Windows.

"It's amazing to have so many cloud storage options for saving our files, but all this storage creates file management headaches and serious privacy issues too. Every day seems to bring another high-profile story about cloud accounts hacked and data stolen. It's almost impossible to know where your files are really being stored and if they're protected," said Patrick Nichols, president of WinZip. "With the new WinZip 19, we're making cloud storage and sharing simple and worry free. One easy-to-use app enables you to add your own powerful encryption to keep your info safe, while also managing all your files and accounts. WinZip 19 lets you take advantage of all the benefits of the cloud for storage and sharing, without the risks."

Boosting productivity with a dramatically optimized user experience, WinZip 19 makes it possible to manage all your files, zip and unzip, and add powerful AES encryption, through a single, unified file-sharing environment.

  • New! Centralized file management: Be more productive than ever with the new file management features in WinZip 19. Browse and select local, network or cloud files easily without having to use multiple apps and browsers to hunt through folders or search through multiple cloud services. Move, delete and rename files in the cloud and between accounts and drives. Protect your privacy in the cloud by encrypting files before and even after they're uploaded. Select saving and sharing options, including cloud services, email, instant messaging and social media-all within the same interface.
  • New! Simplified, task-oriented UI: The all-new WinZip user interface features a modern layout that brings enhanced visibility and productivity to everything you do with your files. Access the tools you need when you need them with the dynamic Actions pane. Easily switch between zipping and file management features depending on your desired workflow.
  • Enhanced! File Conversion: Now encrypt files, convert to PDF, add watermarks, and resize photos at any point during the zip process. Make decisions on the fly, before, during and after you create your zip file, and choose whether the changes are applied to all the files in the zip or only to the individual files selected.
  • Enhanced! ZipShare® integration: When sending large files as email attachments, get direct access to the new www.ZipShare.com file sharing service. Seamlessly email large attachments as Zip files. Track deliveries to know the file was received. Send files up to 50MB free using ZipShare or move up to ZipShare Pro to send up to 2GB.
  • New! Touch and high-res-friendly design: WinZip 19 offers support for displays up to 500 DPI and a redesigned UI that features highly visible icons and makes drag-and-drop easy on any screen. Designed to take full advantage of next-generation 2-in-1 computers and devices, WinZip 19 adjusts automatically to give users an optimal experience, whether they're in tablet or notebook mode.

WinZip 19 integrates directly with your cloud storage accounts on Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive, MediaFire, SugarSync and CloudMe. Direct support for Twitter, Facebook, Google Talk/Google+ Hangouts, Yahoo! Messenger, and Jabber makes it simple to share files over social media and instant messaging.

WinZip 19 continues to be the industry's leading application to create and unzip Zip and Zipx files and open compressed files including Zip, Zipx, RAR, 7Z and more.

WinZip 19 Enterprise

Also available today, the new WinZip 19 Enterprise edition enables corporate and government customers to implement enterprise-level encryption across their workforce and protect critical data.

Ideal for multi-lingual environments, WinZip 19 Enterprise offers FIPS 140-2 security standard compliance and support for enterprise platforms including SharePoint and Amazon S3. WinZip 19 Enterprise can now open and extract files from .VHD files, providing the same level of functionality for virtual device files as previously supported .ISO CD and DVD files. With support for the latest 2-in-1 devices, WinZip 19 helps IT departments future-proof their organization's software and hardware procurement.

Extensis® today released Suitcase Fusion® 6, the professional-grade font manager which integrates fonts directly into the creative workflow and allows designers to get the most out of their font collections by organizing them into a single, searchable location.

Touting compatibility with last week’s release of Apple® OS X® Yosemite, and support for the industry’s most popular design applications and cloud-based archiving, Suitcase Fusion 6 provides instant access to the font tools designers need in all the places they need them.

Highlights in Suitcase Fusion 6:

  • Apple® OS X® Yosemite Compatible: Apple just released Apple® OS X® Yosemite, and Suitcase Fusion 6 is ready for designers. Suitcase Fusion users are proven early adopters of technology. They will jump to the next OS ahead of others, and Suitcase Fusion 6 is fully compatible when they do.
  • Optimized for Modern Workflows: Suitcase Fusion 6 is designed to tightly fit into the design workflow. Optimized for Adobe® Creative Cloud® 2014 applications and high-resolution retina-crisp font previews, this font manager is elegant, fresh and familiar.
  • Fast & Reliable Activation:  Suitcase Fusion 6 auto-activates fonts using plug-ins and panels for Adobe Creative Cloud 2014 applications, including Adobe Photoshop®, Adobe InDesign® and Adobe Illustrator®, as well and QuarkXPress®.
  • Cloud-based Archive & Restore for Dropbox™, Google® Drive™, and more: Designers never turn off their creativity. They work whenever and wherever inspiration strikes. Now all font users will be able to keep their home and work font collections in sync using their Dropbox or Google Drive accounts. Suitcase Fusion 6 makes it easy to transfer collections between multiple workspaces with cloud-based archives & restore.
  • Enhanced Fontspiration®: Built from day one to put fonts on center stage, today Suitcase Fusion 6 adds even more creative inspiration with Fontspiration. The new Fontspiration panel delivers fresh typographic samples–directly into Suitcase Fusion interface. Fontspiration joins QuickComp as another tool for juicing creative inspiration

Jim Kidwell, Sr. Product Marketing Manager at Extensis noted: “Designers love fonts. In fact, the average font collection size is 4,512. And we’ve seen collections top 230,000!”

Kidwell continued: “With large font collections comes problems finding, sorting and using them. Suitcase Fusion 6 provides a central hub which integrates into modern workflows, enabling designers to focus on design versus losing time trying to find what they need.”

Feature Highlight: Crop and Resize

With PhotoZoom Pro 6 it is easier than ever to cut out a specific portion of an image, and enlarge it at the highest possible quality.

Say you have an original image of 800 x 600 pixels which you want to enlarge to 1920 x 1080 pixels (Full HD). When you simply resize this image, it will be stretched out of its original proportions in order to match the output size (it goes from a 4:3 ratio to 16:9, width to height). To get an image of 1920 x 1080 pixels without stretching it, you'll need to cut out and enlarge a portion of the original image. In PhotoZoom Pro 6, this can be done as follows:

- Change the "Aspect ratio" setting to "Crop"
- Specify the desired output size (in this case 1920 x 1080 pixels)
- By default, the center area is selected. Click "Adjust..." to adjust the selected area
- Save the image

Done! The 800 x 600 image has been cropped and enlarged to 1920 x 1080 pixels, without being stretched. During enlargement, image quality is preserved perfectly thanks to our improved S-Spline Max resize technology, which in PhotoZoom Pro 6 performs faster than ever before.

Seattle, Wash. and Victoria, Canada – September 25, 2014 - ACD Systems International Inc., today announced two photo editing and management products which provide the richest combination of features and value available in one solution. Until today, photographers and companies had to buy an expensive suite of products to be able to import, edit and manage their photos.

BUDAPEST, May 6, 2014 – GRAPHISOFT® announced today the latest version of its industry-leading BIM software solution for architects and designers. ArchiCAD 18 delivers innovations making the BIM workflow smoother, including CineRender, a brand new render engine with high-end photorealistic rendering capabilities found only in the professional visualization application CINEMA 4D – now available right inside the BIM tool.

"BIM innovation has been shifting from adding new features to introducing innovative new workflows — this is exactly what ArchiCAD 18 offers end-users," said László Vértesi, Vice President of Product Development at GRAPHISOFT. "With ArchiCAD 18, we pinpointed the most important user requests related to workflow issues with the clear goal of providing our users with solutions that keep them in the creative design flow with as little disruption as possible."

"We are delighted that GRAPHISOFT has decided to integrate CineRender into ArchiCAD 18 - offering a bridge to CINEMA 4D for users who wish to add even more sophisticated graphics and animations to their projects," said Harald Egel, Managing Partner and CEO of MAXON.

About ArchiCAD 18

Built-in CineRender, the CINEMA 4D render engine by MAXON Computer — High-quality, photorealistic renderings are still the most important client communication tool for architects. The integration of CineRender, MAXON’s world-class CINEMA 4D rendering engine into ArchiCAD 18, brings this capability closer to a much wider range of users. One-button "photo-shot" rendering can be used to easily produce convincing, high-quality results, as with tweaking numerous sliders and parameters – allowing both novice and professional users to complete the rendering job right inside the BIM application. Fast preview and background processor support make the rendering workflow a smooth and uninterrupted process. The seamless file export from ArchiCAD 18 to CINEMA 4D enables users to enhance their projects with high-end animation and visualization techniques and benefit from decreased render times thanks to the highly-efficient distributed rendering solution in CINEMA 4D.

Integrated Revision Management workflows — Data exchange with clients, consultants and the authorities puts the legal burden on architects and designers. ArchiCAD 18 tracks and automatically documents changes to the building model so questions about responsibility won’t be an issue later on. ArchiCAD 18’s brand new Revision Management solution is integrated into the entire BIM workflow, providing solutions for 2D, 3D or any kind of hybrid workflows.

Improved PDF-based data exchange — PDF has become one of the worldwide drawing standards people use for multiple tasks. By introducing BIM-related intelligence and data hierarchies into PDF files, ArchiCAD 18 offers PDF-based smooth workflows for a wide range of stakeholders in the AEC process.

OPEN BIM and IFC-based workflow improvements — ArchiCAD 18 continues to deliver several IFC-related improvements, including professional scheme-driven data management and data mapping and high-quality (certified) export processes. In addition, to support highly iterative coordination with engineers and consultants, ArchiCAD 18 introduces full BCF support. The BIM Collaboration Format (BCF) is an open file format that allows the addition of textual comments and screenshots on top of the IFC model layer for better communication between the coordinating parties. ArchiCAD 18 integrates BCF information natively into the BIM model in the form of ArchiCAD Mark-Up entries. As a result, ArchiCAD joins major BIM applications (including model checker, structural and MEP engineering software) that support the BCF format.

GRAPHISOFT BIMcloud® Integration — The true potential of BIM is best realized through a team effort with several contributors collaborating on the same BIM data. With its full integration with the GRAPHISOFT BIMcloud®, ArchiCAD 18 offers industry-first, real-time BIM collaboration regardless of the size, location or setup of the collaborating team. Cloud integration allows the ArchiCAD team to soar without limits. Learn more about GRAPHISOFT’s BIMcloud® Solution here: http://www.graphisoft.com/bimcloud/

Workflow enhancements — In addition to introducing brand new innovative workflows, ArchiCAD 18 also unveils substantial enhancements to its existing workflows as well, proving that listening to customers is of primary importance when assigning development resources at GRAPHISOFT.

GRAPHISOFT ArchiCAD® 18 will start shipping in June, 2014 with an impressive list of 26 local versions rolled out by the end of Q3 2014. Learn more about the upcoming release here: http://www.graphisoft.com/archicad/archicad-18/overview/.

The solution for many mental ray artists and video compositors has been finally released. 3d-io, the creator of Unwrella, FlatIron and BonesPro has unveiled the next production tool for enhanced 3d and video post-processing interaction.

What is Spotmask?

Spotmask is the set of precision render elements for Autodesk 3dsmax mental ray.
These advanced output passes allow 3d artists to make flexible adjustments to their images and animations during post processing and compositing.
Spotmask is a lightning fast and easy to use solution for the requirements of serious image and video composition workflows.

 

The missing link for compositing in Nuke and Fusion!

Spotmask offers the new world position pass output as well as repaired and optimized motion velocity, UVW and normal passes. Especially the replacement for the current malfunctioning mental ray velocity pass allows artists to render fast motion blur in their video compositing applications.
This means the color, effects, motion blur, textures and filter corrections do not need to be rendered again, but simply and fast adjusted with Spotmask channels afterward.

 

Spotmask v1 features:

- Render element plugin for World-Position, Normal and UV Pass output
- Special advanced MentalRay output for Vector Pass (Motion Blur)
- Easy, customizable and reliable render output for efficient compositing work
- Very fast render speed

 

Availability:

The latest version of Spotmask is now ready for download and offers full support for Autodesk 3ds Max 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014(each in 32 bit and 64 bit versions).

The Spotmask plug-in and a lot of associated training materials are now available at:
http://www.spotmask.com

If you are a veteran 3d video artists, you can at last engage the correct render elements in order to improve your animation workflow even more.

If Spotmask and render element technology is new to you, check out the comprehensive tutorials and free trial to see how Spotmask works.

With support for SugarSync, improved cloud features, streamlined interface and new add-ons, WinZip 18 makes zipping, file encryption & sharing faster and easier than ever

MANSFIELD, CONNECTICUT--(Marketwired - Oct. 30, 2013) -

WinZip today announces WinZip® 18 and WinZip® 18 Pro, new versions of its file sharing application that make it fast and simple to protect your privacy and share files across email, cloud accounts and social media. Improved file management and navigation, new Cloud Links and direct integration with SugarSync make it easier than ever to share and store files. All-new Express Add-Ons bring WinZip's most popular features including Zip, AES encryption and cloud sharing to applications customers use most. With powerful file protection, simplified workflow, an enhanced Zip engine and extensive cloud support, WinZip 18 is the essential companion for all your file sharing needs.

Redesigned to support all-new Express Add-ons, WinZip 18 makes it fast and easy to protect your privacy and share files anywhere:

  • New! WinZip Express Add-Ons: Instantly access WinZip features including Zip, encryption and cloud sharing with the affordable WinZip Express Add-Ons for Windows Explorer, Microsoft Outlook, Photos and SharePoint. For a limited time, download WinZip Express for Explorer free with your WinZip 18 purchase.
     
  • Enhanced! Cloud navigation: WinZip 18 lets you access and manage your files in the cloud as easily as the files on your computer. Send files to and from the cloud, save between cloud accounts, and monitor your cloud storage space all with WinZip.
     
  • New! Direct integration with more clouds: Share directly with Box, SkyDrive, Dropbox, Google Drive, CloudMe and now SugarSync.

  • New! WinZip 18 Pro now includes Cloud Backup: Extending the backup capabilities offered exclusively in WinZip Pro, new Cloud Backup enables you to auto-backup to any connected cloud account, desktop folder or even between your cloud accounts.
     

"The last few years have seen a dramatic change in the way we store and exchange files. The cloud has provided us with tremendous benefits, but many users have concerns about the privacy, cost and complexity of this new way of sharing. When you think of WinZip's strengths - encryption to protect your information, smaller files to save space and bandwidth, and direct connections to services you use every day - WinZip has established itself as the essential companion for file sharing and collaboration," said Patrick Nichols, President of WinZip.

Simplify and Protect Corporate File Sharing with the new WinZip® 18 Enterprise

In early December, WinZip will also be releasing the all-new WinZip 18 Enterprise Edition for corporate accounts. With support for SharePoint and Amazon S3, powerful enterprise controls and a new IT installation and configuration guide, the WinZip 18 Enterprise Edition license includes WinZip 18 Pro, full access to the WinZip Express Add-Ons, and the file sharing power of the new WinZip® Courier™ 5.0. With WinZip Enterprise Edition, IT administrators can easily manage employee access to cloud services through WinZip, while enforcing encryption and password protocols to protect sensitive corporate information.

With support for SugarSync, improved cloud features, streamlined interface and new add-ons, WinZip 18 makes zipping, file encryption & sharing faster and easier than ever

MANSFIELD, CONNECTICUT--(Marketwired - Oct. 30, 2013) -

WinZip today announces WinZip® 18 and WinZip® 18 Pro, new versions of its file sharing application that make it fast and simple to protect your privacy and share files across email, cloud accounts and social media. Improved file management and navigation, new Cloud Links and direct integration with SugarSync make it easier than ever to share and store files. All-new Express Add-Ons bring WinZip's most popular features including Zip, AES encryption and cloud sharing to applications customers use most. With powerful file protection, simplified workflow, an enhanced Zip engine and extensive cloud support, WinZip 18 is the essential companion for all your file sharing needs.

Redesigned to support all-new Express Add-ons, WinZip 18 makes it fast and easy to protect your privacy and share files anywhere:

  • New! WinZip Express Add-Ons: Instantly access WinZip features including Zip, encryption and cloud sharing with the affordable WinZip Express Add-Ons for Windows Explorer, Microsoft Outlook, Photos and SharePoint. For a limited time, download WinZip Express for Explorer free with your WinZip 18 purchase.
     
  • Enhanced! Cloud navigation: WinZip 18 lets you access and manage your files in the cloud as easily as the files on your computer. Send files to and from the cloud, save between cloud accounts, and monitor your cloud storage space all with WinZip.
     
  • New! Direct integration with more clouds: Share directly with Box, SkyDrive, Dropbox, Google Drive, CloudMe and now SugarSync.
     
  • New! Cloud Links: Quickly send links to your cloud files by email, social media and more.
     
  • Best-in-class file compression: With an enhanced Zip engine under the hood, WinZip 18 now compresses Zip and Zipx files even smaller than before.
     
  • New! WinZip 18 Pro now includes Cloud Backup: Extending the backup capabilities offered exclusively in WinZip Pro, new Cloud Backup enables you to auto-backup to any connected cloud account, desktop folder or even between your cloud accounts.
     

"The last few years have seen a dramatic change in the way we store and exchange files. The cloud has provided us with tremendous benefits, but many users have concerns about the privacy, cost and complexity of this new way of sharing. When you think of WinZip's strengths - encryption to protect your information, smaller files to save space and bandwidth, and direct connections to services you use every day - WinZip has established itself as the essential companion for file sharing and collaboration," said Patrick Nichols, President of WinZip.

Simplify and Protect Corporate File Sharing with the new WinZip® 18 Enterprise

Increased Performance, Refined UI and Improved Workflows Help Users Create Their Best Photos Ever

Maidenhead, UK – Wednesday 4 September, 2013 – Today Corel announced the availability of PaintShop® Pro X6 Ultimate. Thanks to the addition of 64-bit support, X6 is the most powerful version to date. Improvements in speed and performance, plus interface refinements and new quick selection tools help photographers achieve their best results – fast.

“PaintShop Pro X6 Ultimate is rooted in Corel’s sincere desire to build a product that helps users create their best photos ever. The most effective way to achieve this was to go right to the source,” said Rick Champagne, Senior Product Manager, Corel Photo and Video. “X6 was developed based on our extensive customer research. Our users told us they want 64-bit power, faster performance, an improved user interface, and continued availability of a perpetual license, so we delivered them. Now we not only offer the most robust feature set in the space, but also the professional power to back it.”

Improvements in PaintShop Pro X6 Ultimate originate from the most extensive research study in the product’s history. Corel researchers drew from a base of over 2.6 million PaintShop Pro users, learning that more power, more speed and improved usability were the changes users most wanted to see in X6.

New 64-Bit Power Drives Acceleration Application-Wide

The leap to 64-bit has dramatically accelerated key features. Performance gains include:

  • Superior performance: 64-bit dramatically improves the power of PaintShop Pro X6, delivering more performance, speed, and stability in users’ favorite features. For example, when compared to X5, 64-bit PaintShop Pro X6 saw a 78% performance increase in cataloguing JPG images. For more information on performance gains please refer to page 17 of the Reviewer’s Guide www.corel.com/newsroom
  • New! Memory management: Opening and saving files and applying effects is accelerated in both 32- and 64-bit versions of X6. Both are included with every purchase.
  • New! Open more and larger images faster: With X6 users can open larger files and more files - upward of 50 - with ease. This significantly improves performance in batch processing, multi-layer compositing work and HDR processing.
  • Enhanced! Support for Adobe Photoshop plug-ins: PaintShop Pro X6 now supports many 64-bit Adobe Photoshop plug-ins in addition to Photoshop format (.psd) images and Photoshop format (.abr) brushes.

New Tools Improve on Workflow

New selection tools make traditionally tedious editing tasks a breeze allowing users to focus on the creative side of editing.

  • New! Smart Selection Brush: This new brush enables the selection of objects based on a brushstroke. Users simply paint over an object to select it.
  • New! Auto Selection tool: The new auto selection tool lets users enclose an image area in a bounding rectangle that automatically detects and snaps to the edge. It’s quick and simple, accelerating common selection tasks.

Professional Level Plug-ins Add Additional Value to PaintShop Pro X6 Ultimate

Corel’s flagship photo editor, PaintShop Pro X6 Ultimate also includes a number of photo editing extras, adding extra value.

  • Perfectly Clear: available for the first time in PaintShop Pro Ultimate, the award-winning plug-in by Athentech Imaging, saves users time by delivering advanced, one-click image corrections based on 10 years of scientific research.
  • FaceFilter3 Standard: A versatile photo retouching and beautifying toolkit by Reallusion, FaceFilter3 Standard helps users reveal the true beauty of their photos by providing scenariobased portrait editing and beautifying.

Also introducing Photo & Video Suite X6

Corel also today announced Corel Photo & Video Suite X6, the comprehensive combination of PaintShop Pro X6 and VideoStudio® Pro X6, for photo and video editing in one complete package.

WinRAR 5.0 is here and ready to download!

The latest WinRAR release features a new and advanced archive format which makes archiving more secure, more efficient and faster than ever before.

win.rar GmbH and RARLAB are pleased to announce the long-awaited final release of WinRAR 5.0. The world’s leading compression software is now even more advanced and has implemented a variety of innovations further boosting the performance of WinRAR. The new RAR5 archive format includes many improvements of existing features of WinRAR and creates RAR5 files with a higher compression ratio and significant speed gain relative to the competition.

RAR5

There is new archive format. When using WinRAR 5.0, you'll not only have the existing RAR and ZIP compression options but also the new RAR5 archive format. An assortment of advanced algorithms has been implemented in addition to further optimization for use with modern software and hardware configurations. In summary, there is no better option for file compression than RAR5.

Security

“It's never been more important to feel confident your sensitive data is safe from unwanted access and tampering,” says Öncül Kaya, managing director of win.rar GmbH. WinRAR has always set the standard for quick and easy encryption and that's not going to seize anytime soon. With WinRAR 5.0, the RAR algorithm has been upgraded to include 256-bit AES encryption - further ensuring that the user's data is fully protected. With RAR encryption, data is safe and sound.

Compression

RAR archives have always provided a higher compression ratio than the competition. WinRAR 5.0 can now create larger dictionaries of up to 1 GB in the 64-bit version of WinRAR which leads to an even higher compression ratio than in previous versions.

Speed

Decompression speed has also been increased due to the introduction of a number of advanced algorithms optimizing the process. The increased of speed derives primarily from the use of multithreaded decompression on multi-core systems.

Further Additions to WinRAR 5.0

Based on the demand of many users the limitation of maximum archived file path length in RAR archive is changed from 260 to 2048 characters.

Another major improvement is the new recovery record function which is based upon the Reed-Solomon error correction codes making archive recovery stronger and more efficient. In test scenarios with a 1 GB archive, WinRAR was able to fix 9 times more damages relative to the previous version.

The file identification within RAR archives has been additionally enhanced by using BLAKE2sp hash as a file checksum. With BLAKE2 inclusion, one may definitively detect whether files are different or the same. While using CRC32, two different files may share the same value. This is not the case with BLAKE2.

More information on the improvements of WinRAR 5.0 can be found here: http://www.win-rar.com/whatsnew.html.

Another tip: for all Windows-64-bit users, it is highly recommended to install the WinRAR 64-bit version. It is faster and offers the best available integration. WinRAR’s compression speed in Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8 and on any multi-core-system has been increased considerably.

WinRAR 5.0 32-bit can be downloaded at: win-rar.com/predownload.html
WinRAR 5.0 64-bit can be downloaded at: win-rar.com/predownload.html

WinRAR is available in more than 40 different languages and is compatible with Windows XP/Vista/Windows 7 and Windows 8. The command line version of WinRAR is also available for Linux, FreeBSD and MAC OS X.

ARIS, September 3, 2013 -- Abvent has announced the launch of Artlantis 5, the latest version of the fastest, stand-alone 3D rendering application developed especially for architects and designers. Artlantis 5 combines the most advanced and efficient tools for fast and easy photo-realistic rendering of 3D projects.  New features include an entirely redesigned interface; a new Artlantis Media catalog and InApp store; and a free iVisit 3D option for panoramas and VR objects.  These and other new features announced with the launch of Artlantis 5 make it one of the fastest, most advanced rendering applications available for architects and designers on the market today.

New features in Artlantis 5

New Interface 

The Artlantis 5 interface has been completely redesigned to take advantage of the benefits today's wider screens offer. Artlantis 5 optimizes the project’s display, and offers an even larger preview size. Artlantis 5 makes it easier and more comfortable than ever to work on projects: standardized on Mac and Windows, Artlantis 5‘s interface is based on a single, clear window, adjustable and easy-to-use. With its inspectors grouped at the top of the screen, the working window is more readable - displaying the lists on the left and catalog at the bottom of the screen. As a result, the number of clicks needed to access the desired feature has been reduced considerably.  To meet everyone's own needs and work habits, Artlantis 5 offers a new option to filter the list to optimize the content.

New Media Catalog | InApp Store

Using the new media catalog is fast and efficient. Its organization into categories and subcategories makes choosing media very fast and easy. For better use of workspace, the catalog window can be moved independently onto a second screen if desired.
 
Artlantis 5 also includes new shaders. Some are optimized with additional parameters like relief mapping to better simulate the depths of surfaces.  In addition, non-repetitive tiling shaders and multi-texture natural shaders simulate natural surfaces like ground, grass, and water.
 
The Artlantis 5 revolution would not be complete without the InApp Media Store offering more than 5,000 objects and shaders of all kinds for purchase.  Users can enrich their Artlantis Media catalog at any time by logging in and downloading new Media that are automatically placed in the correct categories and subcategories.  Artlantis 5 includes a Media converter application so that users can convert their own library or previously purchased Artlantis Media CDs into their new Artlantis 5 catalog.

Free iVisit 3D Option for Panoramas and VR Objects
(Artlantis Studio only) 

Create a realistic virtual tour inside your project with multi-node panoramas using  iVisit 3D. Artlantis 5 automatically creates everything needed to view the panoramas. Based on Flash™ technology, the player is free of charge and viewable within most popular web browsers. An iVisit 3D Builder App also allows users to convert and share these panoramas on an  iPadiPhone or  Android device. iVisit 3D is now available in a FREE download from Apple’s App Store or Google Play.  In addition, iVisit 3D VR Object allows you to manipulate and move a scene in 360°.  An automatic feature, simply select the number of images to calculate horizontally and vertically to ensure a smooth animation.

New Corel Painter X3 Inspires Artists to Push the Boundaries of Digital Art

Latest Release Builds on Realistic Painting Experience with New Jitter Brushes, Crosshair Cloning and Perspective Guide Tools

Maidenhead, UK – July 23, 2013 – Corel today announced the availability of the English version of Painter® X3, the world’s leading digital art software known for its hundreds of brushes, paper textures and media that perfectly emulate real-world art materials. As an innovator in digital art, Painter X3 continues to inspire artists with unique tools such as new Jitter brushes that produce more organic art and flow maps that direct the saturation of wet media as it interacts with the canvas. In addition, artists will save more time with workflow enhancements when cloning with crosshairs, drawing in perspective and transforming multiple layers. For both new and experienced Painter users, the Brush Search engine now makes it easier to find the perfect brush, while the advanced brush controls simplify the customisation options.

Created by Artists for Artists

“Painter X3 is the result of an immensely collaborative effort with professional artists across the world to understand how we could improve the user experience, optimise the existing workflow and add new technologies to push the boundaries of digital art,” said Andy Church, Senior Product Manager for Corel Painter. “What we’ve created with this version is more than digital art software; it’s a platform for inspiration, creativity and reflection.”

Painter® X3 Feature Highlights

Every day, artists around the world trust Painter to explore their creativity, produce stunning work with ease and deliver art that amazes their clients. Whether for photo art, traditional art, illustrations, concept art or designs, Painter X3 introduces new tools to further enhance the ultimate digital art studio:

  • Jitter Brushes: Introduce elements of randomness to your brush strokes by adding universal Jitter properties to any brush expression or by using one of the 25 new Jitter brushes
  • Brush Search Engine: Find the perfect brush that inspires you within seconds simply by typing terms in the search bar such as brush names or properties, and ensure they’re what you’re looking for with the enhanced Live Stroke preview
  • Crosshair Cloning: Position the source image beside the clone and take advantage of the crosshairs which mark where you are cloning from, allowing you to focus on the creation
  • Perspective Guides: Speed up the creation of an object with dimension by using the snap tool to draw in 1-,2-, or 3-point perspective and accurately portray spatial depth
  • Smart Brush Controls: Change brush properties more easily now – only the settings that can be tweaked will be displayed in the panel
  • Reference Image Panel: Open a reference image in the new panel to keep a visual source of inspiration within sight as you paint, without toggling between windows
  • Multi-Layer Transformation: Apply a transformation to a selection across multiple layers
  • Flow Maps: Create unique and irregular patterns with this technology that directs wet media across the canvas to produce less saturation at the peaks of the canvas texture and more saturation in the valleys, just like colors would with real-world materials

Meet the Artists: Live Paint Jam Sessions

Art is not always about the end result – it’s also a process of inspiration, creativity and reflection – and we want you to join us for live Paint Jam sessions online to learn from our Painter Masters. Each month, the Paint Jam sessions will focus on a different style of art and we’ll be inviting professional artists to share their artistic process with you. The first series, hosted by Jeremy Sutton, Claudia Salguero and Heather Michelle, will focus on photo-fine art and will kick off on Wednesday 14 August, 20:00 – 21:00 (GMT).

Xenon Graphics Engine
Quark has engineered a new, state-of-the-art graphics engine from the ground up that will be leveraged across a range of its products, starting with QuarkXPress 10. The new Xenon Graphics Engine renders rich PDFs, Photoshop and TIFF images, and uses its Adaptive Resolution feature to deliver designers the most appropriate onscreen resolution with maximum performance. The difference between viewing pixel and vector files in QuarkXPress 10 versus QuarkXPress 9 is stunning. The Xenon Graphics Engine enables:

  • Native and deep understanding of image and vector files: PDF, AI, TIFF, JPG, PNG, PSD, and more
  • Adaptive Resolution: Always delivers the best onscreen resolution without compromising performance – in real time and irrespective of zoom, crop, and even while positioning graphics
  • Rich understanding of PDFs: PDFs are dynamically rendered using rich knowledge of fonts, vectors, colors, gradients, and transparency within a PDF for better onscreen rendering and faster output
  • Takes full advantage of the latest processor technology: Utilises the dedicated vector processors within core hardware and supports multi-core, multi-processor, multi-threading, SSE3, and Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX)

Modern and Optimised User Interface
In order to further optimise the design environment, QuarkXPress has been overhauled on the outside too with a modern new look – but that’s just the start.

  • Next Generation Palettes: Dock palettes to screen edges, turn on hiding, drag and drop palettes, snap to windows, and more. New shortcut keys enable even faster access and the enhanced Palette Sets feature makes remembering favourite configurations a breeze.
  • Full Screen Experience: Expand the design environment to fill the entire screen with one click. When working across more than one screen, palettes can use one screen and the layout another. Set docked palette groups and auto hide for maximum real estate.
  • Page Navigator: Easily scan through the page thumbnails and go directly to a chosen page faster with new navigation elements and command keys.
  • Measurements Palette: The measurements palette is now the single most important destination in QuarkXPress. It now completely replaces the functionality of the Modify Dialog including the previous shortcut keys, enabling continued access to a layout with the option to modify more than 100 layout settings while still interacting with the page.

HiDPI and Retina Display Support
Every element of QuarkXPress 10 has been optimised to take full advantage of high-resolution Retina displays found on the new Mac Book Pro.

QR Code Creator
Generate, style, and color vector Quick Response (QR) codes directly within QuarkXPress with support for text QR codes such as URLs and SMS as well as vCards.

East Asian Typography
Now every edition of QuarkXPress 10 supports East Asian typography, not just editions sold in East Asia. This includes features such as vertical story text, phonetic text reading (rubi) font sets, character grids, and more.

WinZip Computing, a Corel company, introduces WinZip® 17.5, building on its strength as the industry's leading compression, encryption and file sharing software. Available as a free update to registered WinZip 17 customers, WinZip 17.5 adds new IT administrator controls, a streamlined interface, significantly faster unzip and enhanced cloud sharing including support for CloudMe.

Offering a better way to manage, protect and share files across the cloud, social media and email, the new WinZip 17.5 includes:

  • Enterprise IT Controls - New network administrator options make it easy for IT departments to control file sharing and protect corporate information. Companies can keep information safe with WinZip by managing which cloud storage, social media and file sharing services employees are allowed to access and enforce AES encryption and password protocols during the process.
  • Boosted Productivity - An updated and modernized UI makes it even easier to find the tools you need in WinZip. Set your preferred cloud storage account for quick access. Add a timestamp to watermarks to better protect documents, even after they've been unzipped. With more power under the hood, WinZip 17.5 now unzips .zip and .zipx files up to four times faster than before.
  • Enhanced Cloud Sharing - When connected to Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, SkyDrive and CloudMe, users can start with as much as 23 GB of free cloud storage and see how much storage space is available across all their accounts from directly within WinZip. New support for the EU-based CloudMe storage service is ideal for global deployments and European customers.

"WinZip 17.5 is a major update that enhances your productivity and gives you even more power to protect your information from prying eyes. New network options enable admins to manage exactly how employees can access, protect and save files to the cloud; while users gain the benefits of a simpler application, faster performance and a better way to keep their files safe," said Patrick Nichols, President of WinZip.
