MaPZone, Allegorithmic’s free procedural texture generation tool, will soon be upgraded to version 2.6.

The tool enables users to create seamless, high-quality texturesThe update, set to be released in fall 2007, will bring about the ability to input bitmaps so that they can be mixed with the procedurally generated layers that the program specialises in, as well as several usability improvements.

“The freeware version of MaPZone allows all artists to benefit from a powerful production-proven tool that is designed to help simplify the day-to-day task of creating and editing textures,” said Dr. Sebastien Deguy, president and founder of Allegorithmic.

“Offering the software for free has also fostered the growth of our MaPZone user community which has grown to more that 25,000 people since the release of MaPZone 2.5. With MaPZone 2.6 we hope to see that number increase as the user community continues to expand and share resources.”
