What’s New in Manga Studio 5
KILLER NEW USER INTERFACE FULLY CUSTOMIZABLE – Set up a Personal Work Flow
Manga Studio 5 was written with artists’ workflow at the very top of the priority list. All of the most used tools – pens, pencils, erasers, rulers, pattern brushes and selection tools are all right at your fingertips. Customize your own brush shapes, canvas textures, paint expressions and more and then save those as your personal settings.
STUNNING NEW COLORING & PAINT TOOLS – Amazing New Styles
Manga Studio has always had a strong set of pens and brushes, but the bar has been raised with version 5. Choose a painting style from one of the many pre-set paint expressions like watercolor, oil painting, or animation style painting. You can also draw complicated pattern images with ease, things like lace, chains, leaves and trees.
TONS OF AWESOME SCREEN TONES – Huge Library of Options and Powerful Tone Tools
Screen tones are a critical part of comic creation and Manga Studio 5 has a huge library of screen tones or patterned tones to choose from and a powerful set of tone tools. Change painting areas to toned areas simply by turning on the tone mode. Edit toned areas easily, distort toned areas along shapes of drawn subjects.
CREATE SUPER REALISTIC IMAGES WITH 3D OBJECTS – Import 3D Characters and Background Images
Manga Studio 5 allows users to use 3D characters in 3D background images and adjust camera angles, which brings a whole new level of realism and depth to the table. It also stores various accessory data for each character, like clothing, hairstyles, facial expressions and allows you to customize this data. Manga Studio 5 gives you the power to create incredibly realistic images.
MORE CONTROL – Brand New Drawing Engine
Manga Studio 5 uses our latest drawing engine, which enables users to draw and paint naturally as if they were using pencils or brushes.
MORE NATURAL- Super High-Quality Pressure Sensor
You can’t beat the drawing or painting experience with Manga Studio 5 and a pen tablet. The high quality pressure sensor gives you amazingly natural feel and control.
FASTER THAN EVER – 64-Bit Architecture & Multi-Core CPU Support
