Example of converting a Claris Draw drawing to a native EazyDraw drawing.

Advanced Effects-Simple User Interface:

Gradient Fill is a wonderful way to take a drawing to a more interesting appearance. EazyDraw provides a convenient user interface to a wide range of effects and styles of gradient fill.

Vector and Bitmap Gradients:

EazyDraw supports both bitmap and vector gradients. When bitmap gradients are included in vector artwork (EPS for example) an enclosing rectangle is rendered as bitmap raster destroying the expected vector quality of a gradient's region on the drawing. This does not happen when vector gradients are used.

Full Control of Geometry:

Specify an edge and center for the transition. More or less than a cycle possible, use a slider or numeric entry to overrun or under apply a color cycle. Full control of convergence point, interactively view variations of focal point of convergence.

Image composition boosts speed:

The complex vector functions used to create the gradient effect are CPU hogs. We generate the pattern once and composite it to an image. This solves the speed problem for vector based gradient fill. This design brings along the advanced image composition effects supported by Mac OS X and the "Quartz" rendering engine.

You Can Use This:

You don't need to spend the big bucks and invest weeks in training to use these advanced computer illustration techniques. This one panel does it all-no need to mess with layers, cropping, clipping and secret keyboard hand shakes.

Use as many colors as needed to attain stunning effects. There is no limit to the number of colors in a gradient. The user interface provides control for specifying the extent and position of each color. Transition functions other than linear are easily selected.
More than 2
EazyDraw's vector gradients allows for many gradient generation choices - not just linear and radial. Conical, burst and many others are possible for true vector gradients.
Convergence Models
Several mathematical models for convergence transition. Linear to 4th order, exponential and oscillating functions let you do more than just make a shade or shadow.
