“Shattered Neon”, something I did in a few minutes“Shattered Neon”, something I did in a few minutes

in my role as an artist, I come across a lot of software that I use for my works.  Sometimes they’re good, other times, it makes you wonder what the bother was worth.

In this case, we’re talking about Amberlight, by a small company called Escape Motions.  The company calls it a “particle computer graphics generator”, which is a rather ornate way of saying fractal program.  It’s nothing exactly groundbreaking: I’ve owned copies of Ultra Fractal in the past, and they’re pretty good.  So what does Amberlight do differently?

Read past the bump to find out.

Ultra Fractal in the past was a bit baroque in its controls, and Amberlight really isn’t that different; if you’re not used to complex software programs in general, you’re going to get a little lost.  Fortunately, Amberlight has somewhat of a light control UI, though whether it’s intuitive is up to the user.

I’m going to play around with this copy and in a few days, I’ll let you know how that goes.

Disclosure: Wataridori purchased a copy of Amberlight.
