We’ve already demonstrated how to create a seamless repeat that manually can sometimes be vexing if your selection isn’t pixel perfect. And there are Photoshop and Illustrator design repeat plug-ins and stand alone apps, but may require a hefty investment.
Seamless Studio is a fun intuitive program running on Adobe Air that can be a very effective pattern generator.
Loaded with pre-made shapes, you can also import SVG motifs created in apps such as Illustrator to be placed into Seamless Studio for repeat. Specify the canvas and repeat size, drag motifs from the Shapes pane and then manipulate the objects to be enlarged, reduced or rotated. Selecting a new shape or using the program’s line tool creates new layers that can be dragged into arrangement.
Overall Seamless Studio is familiar as your favorite graphic program and perfect for rapid prototyping. Check out our quick tut, download the free beta trial and take it for a spin! Follow this link for Seamless Studio online documentation.
