Rebelle 7 Coming Soon: Metallics, Improved Papers, Structures and Filter Layers

A- | A+

Get ready to redefine your digital painting experience - Rebelle 7 is coming soon! As the anticipation builds, we're thrilled to give you an introduction to the myriad of features that await you, starting today with the mind-blowing Metallic materials, improved paper surfaces, Structures, and Filter layers.

Metallic materials

Rebelle 7 will let you paint stunningly realistic metallic strokes and structures. No more paint-hacks, no more searching all over the internet for the perfect metallic surface, now you can create your own! The new Metallic paints will work with the Oils & Acrylics tool and can be enabled per layer. We have prepared a new color palette with specific metallic colors and also a set of brushes for painting will be available in the Brushes panel. This feature will be available in the Pro edition.

The look of the metallic paint will be customizable as well. The Visual Settings panel will feature several options for modifying the appearance like Reflectivity, Scale, or Strength.

Our favorite feature is that when panning canvas or transforming the layer, the lights and shadows of the metallic effect adapt to the movement which allows you to create the perfect reflection. If you are satisfied with the look, you can lock it to preserve unwanted changes.
We cannot wait to see your masterpieces where you add Gold, Silver, Copper, Bronze, Emerald, or other metallic effects.

Improved paper and art surfaces

Get ready for textures so real, you'll literally feel the brush against the canvas! Rebelle 7 will feature a more natural drawing and painting experience thanks to improved paper surface analysis based on raytracing. Raytracing is a method of graphics rendering that simulates the physical behavior of light. This allows us to detect the paper height map - which parts of the paper are valleys and which are the peaks. Rebelle 7 analyses the surface, uses its actual bumps and the paint brushes interact this way more naturally with the paper instead of scratching only on the lighter paper parts.

And that's not all! The full-color papers can now be colorized just like the greyscale papers. This opens up a HUGE range of color variations for you to craft incredible surfaces for your artwork.
Colorizing the full-color papers will be possible with Rebelle 7.


The upcoming version will offer a variety of amazing structures for artists to add more in-depth patterns to their paintings. This offers limitless freedom to interactively experiment with multiple diverse structures that can overlay each other. Rebelle 7 will offer default structures that will be available from a new separate panel where you can import custom ones at any time.
You will be able to scale, move, rotate, and show or hide them on canvas.
Various structures will be available in Rebelle 7 and you'll also be able to import your own.

Filter layers

We're thrilled to announce that a highly-requested feature is making its debut in Rebelle 7. In this latest version, enjoy the ability to use filters non-destructively as a dedicated filter layer. Whether you're tweaking brightness, adjusting contrast, fine-tuning color balance, or making other enhancements, do it all without impacting the original layer.

Filter layers operate as 'pass-through' layers, meaning they influence all layers positioned beneath them. In this hierarchy, any adjustments or effects applied to the filter layer have a cascading impact on all underlying layers, contributing to a cohesive visual result.

Filter layers can be modified, deleted, or hidden just like any other layers. Additionally, with the Layer Mask, you can selectively mask specific areas.
Create multiple filter layers to achieve the best color scheme.
