What can this program do that a 3d package can’t?

While a 3d package will be able to give you identical results to this program, a 3d program is not designed to quickly and conveniently display this information in the way a painter needs.

If you were to use a 3d program for the same purpose, it would take you many times as long to set up the scene and would be difficult to get the same sort of consistently useable results every time.

I have a bug and it does ????

Please email me at and i will fix it ASAP.

Is there any example videos?

None officially yet, but coming soon. 

However, there is both a review and tutorial video created by Ahmed Aldoori.

Why have you misspelt color?

Color is the American spelling, Colour is the spelling used in about half the English speaking countries, including Australia, NZ, Canada and the UK.

Who painted the sweet frog image?
