[prMac.com] San Francisco, California - PixelCut today released PaintCode 2.3, a significant update with over 15 new features. PaintCode is a unique vector drawing app that generates Objective-C or Swift code in real time, acting as a bridge between developers and graphic designers. With PaintCode, developers and designers can create an app that is truly resolution-independent, using code (instead of a large number of image assets) to draw a user interface.
PaintCode 2.3 adds support for exporting SVG documents. With SVG export, app creators can now easily use their PaintCode designs in native apps as well as on the web. PaintCode 2.3 introduces a completely rebuilt image export module. The new user interface allows designers to easily configure their drawing canvases and re-export them with just two clicks, at any time.
"For the first time ever, PaintCode lets you export animated GIF images and PNG sequences for Apple Watch. PaintCode excels at creating parametric drawings. By animating these parameters over time and exporting the results, designers can now create animated sequences for various uses," said Matt Dunik, PaintCode developer.
The new version also significantly improves compatibility with other drawing apps, adding support for importing PDF, AI and EPS documents. In addition, PaintCode 2.3 supports copy & paste from most other popular drawing apps on Mac. For power users, PaintCode 2.3 boasts a brand new multi-threaded renderer that significantly improves performance in many scenarios.
"PaintCode 2.3 is one of the biggest updates we have ever released. With over 15 new features, PaintCode 2.3 is more capable, faster and easier to use than ever before. We're thrilled to make it immediately available to all our customers as a free update," said Peter Krajcik, PixelCut CEO.
