Editors' Review

+

Vectoraster for Mac quickly creates vector point or line raster patterns based on bitmap images. The program performs its main functions well and may appeal to more experienced users who frequently use image and video editors.

Vectoraster for Mac comes with a free trial version that randomly alters the output image. A user manual accompanied the program, which was helpful. The first menu that appears is one to purchase the full version of the program. This was difficult to work around, at first, but could be minimized or closed once the main program started. The main window on the left side of the application shows the image output and allows for zooming in and out. The right side contains the drafting controls, which are so numerous that they do not fit in the window. To navigate between options, the user must scroll up and down, which can be irritating during long usage periods. All of the necessary options are available, and users can create a number of shapes, as well as gradients and other effects. Fortunately, similar to other graphics editing programs, some of the options can be minimized if not being used often, which can reduce the window to a more manageable size.

Vectoraster for Mac works well and will come in handy for more experienced users who need an application to create vector-based raster pattern backgrounds. Novice users might find the interface somewhat cumbersome and slightly difficult to use.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Vectoraster for Mac 5.2.1.

    "The vector Sky is the limit !"

    Version: Vectoraster 3.0.1

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    A magic application which drives you to endless design possibilities and creativity. Works better and smoother from upgrade to upgrade. However, the application get stuck for a while after performing some letters shape designs with fonts and patience is all that is needed.

    "fun"

    July 30, 2006   |   By sporobolus

    Version: Vectoraster 1.0.0

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    cool concept, fun to play around with, and pretty clean interface for a 1.0 shareware project; i used the "character" point shape and various dingbats for some interesting images; wish i could change more parameters, like maybe specify a collection of characters, rather than just one, for the "character" spot pattern (which creates great patterns with dingbats)

    you can create extremely complex vectors with this, which will take a long time to render and print
