    Cool program. Thanks for posting.
    It could be good for painting initial composition but I think relying on completely straight lines for all process gives it a bit too mechanical look. A bit of "noise" instead of completely smooth surfaces adds more to the interest. I'll try it when I find time.

    True, everything in moderation. You can use perspective as a subtle effect and also to measure the size of more organic things at a distance that are about the same size as something closer. Also, tilt the horizon a bit and things look a lot less mechanical immediately.

    Anyway, a lot of people make mistakes with perspective. Trying to fake a math formula isn't easy! This app eliminates some of those problems. Then you still need to add talent and imagination, as always.

    I'd love to do a Mac version, but it depends on how well the windows version sells. Development costs money, so I'll have to see first how well my current business model works. If it works, then a mac version will be next on the list. If it doesn't... well, then I'll need to get the business side working before being able to do a Mac version.

    Since I'm still on a PowerPC and haven't upgraded to an Intel Mac yet I'd love to see a Mac version.
    I do a lot of architectural and interiors sketching and used to work on paper with pushpins for vanishing points. It was really fast but not too flexible. I work on Painter now hitting lines takes time. The UI you've developed looks like what myself and a lot of other people have been needing for a while.

    That looks pretty cool. I've always found perspective in digital art a pain in the rear, so I do all my preliminary work on a drawing board first.
