So this weeks objective was to learn computer aided design using tools like Raster,Vector,2D,3D,Render,Animate & Simulate.
So i tried 2 Raster softwares Krita and Gimp,Vector software Inkscape and the 3D designing software fusion 360.
First of all i started with the raster software krita. Krita is a free and open-source raster graphics editor designed primarily for digital painting and 2D animation.
It features an OpenGL-accelerated canvas, colour management support, an advanced brush engine, non-destructive layers and masks , group-based layer management, vector artwork support and switchable customisation profiles
This is the first time iam using this software, the graphical interface looks a bit old other than that it is a stable software with many brishes and tools for drawing.
GIMP or the GNU Image Manipulation Program is a free and open-source raster graphics editor used for image retouching and editing, free-form drawing, converting between different image formats, and more specialized tasks.
GIMP is available to make detailed image retouching and free-form drawing as well as accomplish image editing tasks such as resizing, editing, and cropping photos, photomontages combining multiple images, and converting between different image formats.
In addition GIMP can be used in order to create basic animated images in the GIF format.
The positive thing about GIMP is that we can split images into almost pixels and still get excellent quality.
And if you mess up and not have your work backed up; you're more or less screwed. It can take ages to get back to where you were at.
As were in the case of Krita the interface wasn't much appealing.
Krita is a free and open-source raster graphics editor designed primarily for digital painting and 2D animation.
It features an OpenGL-accelerated canvas, colour management support, an advanced brush engine, non-destructive layers and masks (similar to Adobe Photoshop), group-based layer management, vector artwork support and switchable customisation profiles
3D DESIGN SOFTWARES
Autodesk Fusion 360 is a complex piece of software for modeling both onscreen assets (3D renders and animation) and offscreen physically manufactured elements.
It provides parametric tools that allow a designer to edit components as specs change—without starting over from scratch.
What's more, projects can be shared among a group of designers using 360's cloud-based design management system.
The good part of fusion 360 is that it is parametric.The problem i faced is that the software crashing at times.
