    KPT and Art Rage

    No so Art Rage related as this is Kai's Power Tools related. The Ink Dropper, Scatter and Gel tools were and still are nifty to this day. These plug-ins are honestly not that out of date. I see a lot of similarities in the Scatter tool to Art Rage's Sticker tool but of course no surprise there.

    Gamesomely in the traditional sense!
    Do you have a link for KPT?

    Using only the Gel tool from KPT and the Knife tool from Art Rage just for kicks. The surfaces from the Gel tool are custom made from myself.

    I wish with all my heart the Rages would make these available again

    You should make an AR 3 version of them Andy

    Just a nice FYI they were originally written by the Rages and then they ended up with Corel, have a looksy on the Ambient site under plugins, makes me sad, i can't afford $90 odd dollars

    I noticed the similarity to the object spray also. Very funny.
    Kai Krause now lives in a castle in Europe some where. Probably complete with candlelight and spider webs and someone named Igor.
    Andy, did you know and work with Kai Krause? Did he bite you in the neck?

    Some of these tools would be nice to see in Art Rage. Some updates would be nice, for example use images as alpha, bump, metallic and reflections maps for the Gel tool. It would kick butt!

    I knew they were behind these plugins including Kai which i do believe he was behind the Bryce UI design a long time ago. Since Corel then Daz got a hold of Bryce nothing much has changed with the infamous UI of Bryce.


    The plugins are pricey, yes. No one ever talks about them anymore though. Sad, really as they are still amongst the best Photoshop Plugins out there.

    Me too! I got KPT with Painter years ago, (after I bought it). They work well with Art Rage and they are fabulous filters. I doubt I have even unleashed a third of their power. They are awesome.
