Path Styler Pro has many great features, all combined in a single filter, allowing you to create impressive designs fast and easy.
Super sharp bevels
Path Styler Pro produces bevels that are crisp and clean and allows you to choose between rounded, beveled or mitered joins at corners.
Multiple bevels on a single object
Add more than one bevel to both the inside and the outside of a path. Each bevel with its own edge style, material, and texture items.
Metallic, plastic, glass and custom shaded materials
Choose from 6 types of shaders for each material and control the color, opacity, shadow, and highlight settings with dynamic sliders.
Add layers of maps to almost every parameter and choose from 38 map types, including Noise, Wood, Dots, Image, and more.
Add relief and irregularities to a surface by adding multiple texture items with procedural bump maps. Shape the bumps of the textures with editable contours.
Create reflective materials with the reflection item. Use procedural maps for a wide range of colorful environments.
Use 4 colored lights and a light map item to illuminate your object. Choose from directional, omni, and tube lights for sophisticated lighting effects.
Use contours to control the shape of bevels, the output of maps, and the bumps of texture items. Create your own contours with the Contour Editor.
Color the output of procedural maps with gradients. Edit any gradient instantly with the inline gradient editor.
Although Path Styler Pro's bevels do not need smoothing, that doesn't mean you cannot apply smoothing to the bevels in Path Styler Pro. In fact, you can even use separate smoothing settings for each bevel.
All-in-One user interface
Path Styler Pro's user interface was designed to give you instant control so you get great results fast. With dynamic sliders, onscreen controls, unlimited undo/redo capability, and a huge preview that immediately updates when you make changes.
Instantly apply various styles to your paths with resolution-independent presets. View presets quickly and save your styles, contours, and gradients as preset libraries.
And much more...
With the Photoshop version of Path Styler Pro you can also create refractive bevels that distort the background, create styles that remain editable after you apply the Path Styler Pro filter, and use document layers and alpha channels as bump maps, color maps, or masks. The Illustrator version of Path Styler Pro is a live effect that you can apply directly to path, compound path, and text objects. All parameters remain fully editable at all times and the effect automatically updates when you edit the path.
