Digital Anarchy Releases Color Theory 1.5.3 for Windows
New Version of Color Wheel Tool Enables Precise Color Palette Generation
San Francisco, February 15, 2005—
Digital Anarchy, a leading provider of cost-effective special effects software for Adobe®, Apple® and Discreet™ products, today announced the availability of Color Theory 1.5.3 for Windows. Color Theory is a digital color wheel that intelligently finds harmonious color combinations.
Color Theory uses traditional Red-Yellow-Blue (RYB) color space, rather than the Red-Green-Blue (RGB) color space used by computers. Available as a stand-alone application or a plugin for Adobe Photoshop and Adobe After Effects users, Color Theory enables artists to quickly analyze hundreds of color schemes while working with existing logos and artwork.
“A tool like Color Theory is an absolutely essential part of any designer’s workflow,” said Jim Tierney of Digital Anarchy. “It lays the foundation for the imagery that is eventually created. This enhances your creative options and saves you time arriving at them.”
Color Theory is available in two versions. CT Standard is an inexpensive tool for artists who want a simple but powerful color design aid. CT Pro builds on that by allowing the user to import images, output to video, and use it directly within Photoshop, Illustrator or After Effects.
Some of the exciting features in Color Theory include:
Theory of Color.
Color Theory’s formulas are based on the studies of Bauhaus professor Johannes Itten and utilize the classical artists’ RYB color model. Color Theory includes all 20 of Professor Itten's traditional color formulas, as well as primary, secondary, tertiary, pastel, neutral, and clash schemes.
Color Theory allows artists to work in a RYB model on an RGB computer monitor. This is important because Itten’s color theories, which are taught in every Color Design class, don’t work when used with an RGB color model. When an artist imports a logo or graphic and samples a color from it, the artist can be assured that any color scheme generated will match up perfectly to the color theories.
Pricing and Availability.
Regularly priced at USD $99, CT Pro is available now for USD $79 until March 31, 2005. Regularly priced at USD $49, CT Standard is available now for USD $39 until March 31, 2005. Demos and tutorials are available at www.digitalanarchy.com.
