nVeil Art, in addition to photo enhancement, is an original art generator, applying vector templates (the veils) to imagery. The user chooses from a built-in library of 130 vector veils to apply to any imagery, or creates custom veils using any vector graphic drawing tool and the Veilmaker app (included). Changing the source image immediately changes the visual result. Six image controls can vary the appearance of nVeiled imagery. Export multiple variations in seconds.
Import formats now from .jpg, .png, .tif, .gif and .mov files, or from live webcam or Mac's iSight camera feed. nVeiled video plays well with any music through proximal incidence of video motion and music beat, and is a proven relaxing experience, as tested by the San Francisco Biofeedback Institute. An early version of nVeiled video and random music was tested with several viewers, measuring significant increases in alpha and theta brainwaves, a brain balm.
Said Rich Storek, chief architect, "As nVeil was developing, we noticed it generating artwork in the family line of Cubism, the most prevalent art school of the past 100 years. Breaking an image into zones, partitioning it, is at the heart of Cubism, and here we were, influenced by the masters. nVeil, though, was doing something new, things we thought the pioneers, Cezanne, Picasso, Braque, Duchamp and Klee might be interested to try. We will be collaborating with digital arts school programs, providing software and instruction in the meantime, to be announced.
"nVeil is a brilliant new tool for creating art ... from music videos to TV commercial production to corporate logo design to simply creating new forms of digital art, I believe the possibilities for this brilliant innovation are endless." - from Lower Thirds blog: "Unveiling Possibilities of nVeil"
* nVeil runs on OS X 10.7 (Lion) and above
Pricing and Availability:
Bundled app pricing of both the creating/exporting app and the veil-making app for a limited time is $29 (USD), with a special educational price of $19 (USD). Regular price $39 (USD). Subscribers will be sent how-to videos, tips, the nVeil User Guide and newly discovered uses.
