Photoshop Cloning Tool Automatically Corrects for 3-D Perspective
Mok3's Perspective Clone Brush saves guesswork and manual retouching.Mok3, a provider of solutions for creating and editing photo-realistic 3-D scenes from 2-D images, has introduced a Perspective Clone Brush plug-in for Adobe Photoshop. According to Mok3s Jan. 31 press release, this plug-in lets graphic designers rapidly clone areas in an image with automatic correction for 3-D perspective and simultaneous correction for differences in lighting and scale in the image. With conventional cloning tools, users can paint by copying portions of an image, but the images may not blend properly due to differences in 3-D perspective in the target clone area. Distorting the new textures to achieve the correct perspective for the cloned information is time-consuming.
With the Perspective Clone Brush, designers can avoid the iterative guesswork involved in cloning textures from one perspective to another.
