    There was a cat peeking at me!

    When I was changing the order of my layers I discovered a cat peeking out at me from behind a layer! It caught me so off guard that I was suddenly laughing with delight! Has anyone else encountered odd little suprises in the program?

    I think the same kitty is there when I've used the ruler, I've seen him pop up every now and then, pleasant surprise.

    I believe that mischievous cat belongs to DaveRage and is named Tycho. He likes to randomly pop up and surprise you. Youll find that there is even a custom color picker devoted to Tycho in your color picker menu and also a custom color sample for him in your color samples panel menu. You can use them to paint a picture of Tycho and then share it with us in the following thread:

    There are a few 'Easter Eggs' in ArtRage 2.5
    Tycho hiding in the Layer stack is one of them.

    Try pressing <ctrl>K and waiting a while.
    (Leave it running overnight to see what it's up to...)

    That evil cat gets everywhere.

    Im not a cat lover, but that Tycho is wonderful! Ive found him in the layers as well. I just wish that now when I do the weekly update check hed tell me a new version was released.
    The only problem with humor is that no one takes it seriously.

    This cat freaked me out the first time i have seen it. My heart stopped and i had goosebumps. I love cats but i thought i had hallucinations... Tycho! sneaky cat! i tried to capture it on print screen, for showing it to my girlfriend "see, you can see there is a cat!" Nothing! it's not working with printscreen! She might think (more and more) that i am crazy then... Thank you, Ambient Team, uh

    Your cat looks awesome, btw. Is this because he's distracting you from your work (you say it yourself), that you wanted him to distract the AR users as well?

    Now i am used to him, i think he likes me because i can see him at least once each time i use ArtRage... sometimes more than once... is there a reason for that?

    When I descovered him first I did a lot, now, some time I move a little bit a layer to see him pop up;
    I like cats but specialy this type, he have the same alure and carachter as my Mimi that I had years ago, cats are very special.

    Really? That's weird... it appears once in a while behind a layer when u move it... but in my case it appears quite often (But i do composite works with lot of layers, maybe that's the reason i see him so often)... so... like in tech threads... what is your platform and OS?
