Twister’s easy-to-navigate User Interface
Twister has unlimited image and mask layers, and can be used in any broadcast resolution with images of any size (limited only by available RAM of course). Twister’s image layers feature alpha and layer mask channels, transparency, and blending modes. And each Twister image and mask layer has its own undo/redo with unlimited levels
Twister’s imaging, masking, and effects feature active previews. In addition, layers and masks can be either 2D or transformed/warped dynamically. And shapes, text, and related effects such as shadow and emboss can be dynamically applied to layers so that settings can be adjusted any time during the project. Twister’s wide variety of pressure sensitive brushes and paint tools make touch up easy, and users can quickly create and adjust masks in a variety of ways, for superior results when selecting image regions and compositing images.
Twister’s powerful file browser can import and export a wide variety of image file formats, including import and export of Photoshop Layers (PSD) files, and broadcast specific formats such as Chyron RGBA, Pinnacle .G, and Quantel VPB. Users can quickly navigate between folders, browse thumbnails and metadata of supported formats, and effortlessly import and export to/from Twister’s layers.
