Description: PanoPainter is the first software ever made to enable an immersive experience for artists that want to sketch, paint, and animate on a full 360° panoramic canvas. Its native workflow allows artists to work in an intuitive environment and create amazing illustrations that can also be viewed using any virtual reality headset and be immersed inside the artwork.
Review: While I am not the best person to review ‘PanoPainter’ given my own lack of creative talent I can tell you how I found it from a new-person/first time perspective. I have to say it was pretty easy to get started and after just a few minutes I was playing about with the various brushes and colours. But I was surprised at how basic it was given the £15.49 price tag, but I know there are two “modes” to use this program with, the other is just on a flat-screen so you can use the mouse for more detailed touches, but I think the VR side of things might well be missing some of what is on offer. I can say it is worth the asking price, but I could see someone using this to create some amazing 360 paintings.
