Escape Motions launched a new Community center

Thu, 17 May 2018 10:44:48

We are pleased to announce the opening of a new Escape Motions Community center! The Community is here to provide you with a friendly and helpful environment where you can discuss everything related to Escape Motions software in the community forum, post to community gallery and create your artist profile with portfolio, as well as access all your software purchases - everything under one roof!

Community Forum

We have been receiving lots of questions and feedback about our software from you via different channels, such as email, facebook, twitter or instagram. So we decided to create a Forum - a place where such discussions can be easily organized and shared with everyone. Beside official announcements from Escape Motions team you can find a ‘FAQ’ and a ‘Support’ section as well as ‘Ideas’ or ‘Artworks’ threads for each and every software. The forum is a great place to ask questions about Rebelle, Flame Painter, Amberlight or Inspirit, get in touch with our support team, share your feedback, suggest and discuss new features, get a valuable feedback and critique for your work or have any other conversation.

Community Gallery

We had a Gallery on our website before but the new Community Gallery is created in a much more sophisticated way - you can upload your artworks directly from our software or from your profile. You can easily edit your artworks, upload new or delete those you don’t want in your portfolio any longer. What is more, fellow artists of the community can comment, like or share your work with credits so you get an instant feedback from others.

Everyone who had an old Gallery account, don’t worry - your account registration is still valid for the new Community center.

Your Account and Purchases

When you purchased Rebelle 3 you already noticed the new registration system - you were asked to create your username and password with which you can register Rebelle (no need for a long and boring key!). This password can be used to log in to our Community. We want to apply the same system for future Flame Painter, Amberlight and Inspirit too!

If you don’t have a Community account yet, no worries - the signup process for is quick and easy - just click the JOIN button. If you join by entering the email address you used for purchasing and registering our software, you will be able to access the download links under PURCHASES tab of your profile.

Rebelle 3 Released Today

Mon, 30 Apr 2018 22:42:49


We are thrilled to announce today’s release of Rebelle 3 - a powerful upgrade to the most realistic natural media application for Windows and macOS. Based on months of studying the watercolors, brushes, testing hundreds of various papers, and working closely with art community, a new Rebelle 3 unites tradition and technology with an original approach.

“We put art first. This new version comes again closer to blur the line between traditional and digital painting as it will give the artists an infinite range of expression possibilities packed in a simple interface,” says the founder and head behind Rebelle algorithm, Peter Blaškovič. “Rebelle 3 has made big strides in improving the realism of its world-class watercolor brushes, which can now accurately mimic all sorts of behavior on different paper surfaces.”


Rebelle 3 Key Features

• Ultra-realistic papers - In the new version you can use not only textured paper backgrounds, but also an imitation of real watercolor papers, some of them with deckled - rough and irregular edges. You can get more papers
from Rebelle website. More different papers and canvases will be available for download in the next months.

• Watercolor simulation code re-design - To adapt to the new papers, a watercolor simulation code has been rewritten to be even more realistic than before. In Rebelle 3 you will be able to change the watercolor behavior and other settings via Visual Settings panel.

• New ‘DropEngine’ - We implemented a unique “DropEngine” especially to simulate drips and connected it with watercolor simulation. Drips behave very naturally - their appearance is influenced by paper structure, stencils and selections.

• ‘Masking Fluid’ layer - The masking fluid allows you to paint freely over the masked area. Using this handy tool, there’s no need to paint around complex objects laboriously any more.

• Straight line, Ruler & Perspective tools – Rebelle 3 introduces you to the new useful drawing assistants. You can lock the control points to prevent ruler from moving by accident, or paint with a freehand, so the lines will not be “too digital” when painting.

• ‘Reference Image’ and ‘Preview’ panel - Reference image panel was one of the most demanded features from Rebelle users. This panel serves as a visual guide while painting. Preview panel is very practical when you work on detail but you don’t want to zoom in & out all the time to see the whole picture.

• Magic Wand - This newly implemented tool will help you create selections based on tone and color of the pixels.

• Support for pen rotation - Support for brush rotations which is now available by activating Follow Brush, Pen tilt or Pen rotation setting.

• Canvas and Image resize - Other great news is the implementation of ‘Canvas Size’ and ‘Image Size’ - a new tool that will serve for cropping, scaling and resizing your work.

• New „Filter“ menu – This new menu allows artists to make desired color adjustments to their painting, with a help of such as Brightness, Contrast, Hue, Saturation, Lightness, Color Balance and other color filters.

Rebelle 3 is Coming: Save the Date

Fri, 27 Apr 2018 09:48:14

Excitement is brewing: Rebelle 3 is just a few days away! Packed with ultra realistic papers, enhanced blow tool, new ‘DropEngine’, effective ‘Masking Fluid’ layer, Canvas and Image size and…wait…that’s not all! Read below about other new features and improvements of Rebelle 3 and save the date: Monday, April 30th.


New Filters

Our development team has implemented standard color adjustments settings to Rebelle 3 under a new Filter menu, more specifically:

- Brightness / Contrast, Hue / Saturation / Lightness
- Color Balance, Color Filter, Colorize
- Desaturate, Invert
- Black to Alpha, White to Alpha

The last set of useful filters ‘Black to alpha’ and’ White to alpha’ are very useful when importing a picture with a background. This is especially great for coloring images when you import scanned line art and you would like to remove the background from it.

Support for Pen Rotation

Another feature Rebelle users wished to see is the support for various brush rotations when painting, which is now available via 3 different ways:

  • by activating ‘Follow Brush’ setting - is used also when painting with finger or mouse
  • by activating ‘Pen tilt’ - it helps you to create a stroke with the orientation you expect and controls how the stroke is drawn (not all tablet pens​ support this feature​).
  • by activating ‘Pen rotation’ - brush stroke orientation depends on a rotation of the pen (as far as we know only Wacom Art Pen​ has this feature).

Drag & drop files 

In Rebelle 3 we implemented a possibility to easily drag & drop files, brushes, papers, color sets or stencils to appropriate panels. Drag & drop .zip assets to main window with canvas - Rebelle will unzip and sort the assets internally. That means if you drop any image into panel with brushes in Rebelle 3, it will create a new brush. If you drop the image into Color Set panel, it will create a new color palette.


Improved Stencils 

New settings have been added to stencils menu to improve the manipulation and let you gain more control over the current stencil on canvas. These are:

- Border and Tile which create a border around the stencil or create a tileable stencil.


- Lock size ratio of the stencil to keep the stencil size proportions.

„Create Stencil from Layer (image)“ - New option in Stencils panel menu for creating stencil from an image layer.

Magic Wand

Rebelle 3 will feature a new selection tool which will help you create selections based on tone and color of the pixels. You can specify the Tolerance, Antialiasing, Contiguous selection, or Use Alpha channel. Tolerance determines the color range of selected pixels, Antialiasing creates a smoother-edged selection, Contiguous selects only adjacent areas using the same colors and Use Alpha determines the alpha channel of selected pixels from the background.

Pricing & Availability

Rebelle 3 will be available on our website from Monday April 30th 2018 for the full price $89.99. All existing owners of Rebelle 1 or 2 are eligible for more than 50% discount - regular upgrade price will be $39.99. Users who purchased Rebelle within last two month, from March 1st 2018 will be eligible for a free upgrade.

Upgrading is optional and the upgrade discount will always be available. You can continue using your Rebelle 1 or Rebelle 2 for as long as you like.

System Requirements:

Minimum: Intel i5 or equivalent AMD processor, 4GB RAM, 200MB hard disk space, graphics card with 1GB RAM, Windows 7 (64-bit or 32-bit) or Mac OS X 10.11.
