Incredible Oil Paint Blending
While the strokes of a wet oil paint brush look beautiful on their own, the breathtaking blending effects of Inspire Pro's dry brush will absolutely stun you. Graze the canvas with a bit of pressure to add a subtle blur to your artwork or use stronger pressure to actually mix existing colors together to create new ones!
Sorcery™ Painting Engine
Our proprietary painting engine Sorcery™, based on OpenGL, takes full advantage of the GPU to render brush strokes with brilliant 64-bit color, laser-sharp sub-pixel precision and incredibly fast speed.
Ultra Fast Rendering
While most other painting apps struggle to keep up with even 30 frames per second, Inspire Pro's Sorcery™ engine renders brush strokes at a blistering 60 FPS and then asks for more.
Canvas Playback
Watch your paintings unfold, stroke-by-stroke, with Canvas Playback. Each brush stroke is recorded automatically while you paint and you can watch the video when you're finished inside of Inspire Pro's gallery or export it at 1080p to your Photos, Email, iTunes Documents or Dropbox. Mesmerize your family, friends and the world with your Inspire Pro skills and Canvas Playback.
Dual Texture Brushes
Thanks to the amazing technology behind Sorcery™ and the power of iPad GPUs, Inspire Pro can render two brush textures at 1024 x 1024 resolution each, simultaneously and dynamically. During a brush stroke, "shape" and "surface" textures are combined on the fly to produce incredibly realistic marks on the canvas for mediums like chalk and charcoal.
Beautiful Gallery
Browse through your saved paintings in a beautiful, yet functional, gallery that allows you to easily watch the Canvas Playback video of each of your paintings, give one of them a title or quickly flip through all of them by thumbnail, many at a time.
Brush Selection
There are 70 high quality brushes to choose from, divided into 7 sets: Oil Paint, Airbrushes, Basic Shapes, Graphite Pencils, Wax Crayons, Markers and Chalk. The Inspire Pro Shop has an additional 60 brushes available for purchase, including Paint Splatter, Spray Paint and Charcoal. All brushes can be used as a wet brush, dry brush (blending) or eraser.
Brush Size and Rotation
The size and rotation of each individual brush can be visually adjusted with pin-point accuracy using the large preview of the Brush menu. Inspire Pro automatically remembers the selected size and rotation for each type of brush and brush mode independently, allowing you to pick up where you left off after switching to a new brush quickly and easily.
Deep Brush Stroke Customization
Customize each brush stroke exactly how you want it in the Stroke menu. There are over 20 different settings across 6 categories. Whether you are setting the pressure, paint blending mode, scatter percentage or the amount of taper a brush stroke is applied with, Inspire Pro gives you full control of how brush strokes will look and feel on the canvas.
Pick a Color, Any Color
Choose any color you can dream of right away with the intuitive Color menu. Hue, saturation and brightness sliders accompany a large color circle to help you explore and adjust colors to find the perfect one. Your latest colors are saved automatically in a palette as you paint and you can also save your favorite colors to another palette with drag and drop.
Love it? Share it!
Do you want to show off your latest masterpiece to as many people as possible? We thought you might, that's why Inspire Pro has many different sharing options available in the Export menu. You can email a painting, print it, or even copy it so that you can paste it into another app. You can also upload your artwork directly to Dropbox, Facebook, Twitter or Flickr.
Start Something New
The New Canvas menu has 3 different canvas sizes for you to choose from, screen (4:3), widescreen (16:9) and square (1:1). Once you choose the size, you can decide if you want to import an image onto a new canvas from a variety of sources like your Photos or Dropbox. Imported images can then be positioned, rotated and scaled onto the new canvas.
Options Galore
The UI of Inspire Pro can be fully customized from the Options menu to suit your painting style. You can choose a painting offset so that brush strokes appear above your finger instead of right underneath. You can disable or hide the hotspots around the edge of the screen. You can even enable or disable gestures like the tap and hold for the eyedropper or the two finger rotate for viewing the canvas at different angles.
