"Scriptographer": Experimentelles JavaScript für Illustratoren

Mit "Scriptographer" haben Jürg und Urs Lehni ein Plug-in (MacOS X und Windows) für Adobes Vektor-Programm "Illustrator" geschrieben, das JavaScript zum (interaktiven) Zeichnen von Objekten verwendet. Die Demos auf der Site sind bereits sehr vielversprechend. Computer-generierte Kunst direkt aus "Illustrator".

Von der englischsprachigen Web-Site der Entwickler: "Scriptographer is a scripting plugin for Adobe Illustrator. It gives the user the possibility to extend Illustrator’s functionality by the use of the JavaScript language.

The user is no longer limited to the same tools that are used by most graphic designers around the globe. Scriptographer allows the creation of mouse controlled drawing-tools, effects that modify existing graphics and scripts that create new ones.

But Scriptographer is also a webpage on which users can exchange scripts and ideas.

Scriptographer gives the tool back into the hand of the user and confronts a closed product with the open source philosophy. And the best thing is: It is all free."
