Introducing Eden – IV

Posted in Uncategorized by Rohan Shravan on December 23, 2010

Hello All,

Today we will show Canvas. It’s a drawing plus image editing software (we only show drawing here) and comes with most of the default features which you expect. Few Canvas features like layers and brush types makes drawing real fun on Adam. Instead of words following the video this time, it’s just one of our designers taking few minutes off and drawing a very raw draft of what you can do (drawing one of my fav cartoon character, WALL.E). Look at the art below followed by the video itself (played very fast)!

From what it looks it’s pretty basic and is the alpha version of what we want to do. Canvas is one application where we will be extremely focused and will make it next to the best drawing plus editing applications around and a real fun one on Adam (we believe tablets will be used a lot for story-boarding).

With Warm Regards

Rohan Shravan

      Wow.. I got first!

    • Veeraraagavan said, on December 23, 2010 at 18:12

      Was away from my desk :( no issues- if you are ok I will share your comments placeholder.

    • Veeraraagavan said, on December 23, 2010 at 18:17

      Cool- that was a statement in a video :)

    • Greg said, on December 23, 2010 at 18:14

      I admire the artistic talent. I cant draw nearly that good. And with a finger no less. Canvas looks like it is going to be a great app and Adam is obviously up to the task!

    • Veeraraagavan said, on December 23, 2010 at 18:19

      +1 I am ok with dawing, but that was really good (not meant to be offensive for the ones who are better at drawing).

      +1. Amazing drawing. Whoever it was from NI, I salute you. I am sure I am going to enjoy sketching and painting on Adam. I can already imaging myself doodling during boring meetings (if I am allowed to take Adam to my workplace that is) ;)

      They-will-want-to-barrow-it!!!

    • nick said, on December 23, 2010 at 21:37

      I know what you mean, this could be dangerous in my college classes if they get too boring some days. I’m very excited for this app, it looks fantastic.

    • Crystalball said, on December 23, 2010 at 21:18

      I could do the exact same painting on an adam in just a few seconds!!
      It is called “CnP”… which is supported by adam by the way :)

      Wow Greg are you just waiting here? JK

      cool pic!
      nice to ploy to target film makers with this storyboard friendly canvas. (a simple video editor wud be a blessing for the community as well) also wud be an advantage if we can paste pics on the canvas n then paint on it.(like art studio app) does eden have a good photoeditor as well?? wat bout note taking app?? I did hear Rohan speak(cnn-ibn interview) about positioning this tablet among students ..wer a student can take notes and video record the lecture as well..

    • elmelao said, on December 23, 2010 at 20:44

      @nrzsez

      Great-idea!
      That-would-be-nice

    • themave said, on December 23, 2010 at 21:50

      Canvas is both a photo editor and a paint program. He just showed the paint portion here.

      He said it is in alpha phase, which means it will be limited but they are going to concentrate on improving it.

      But don’t expect it to replace photoshop, or your primary paint application just yet.

      A lot of the programs they say are in the early stages and are going to be improved, what I wonder is once they are shipping adam, and it is a huge success, will they slow down on the app improvements. From what they have shown so far, it looks like they have a really could development team, I hope they continue improving everything.

      Adam is really shapping up to be the tablet to beat for a quit a while to come.

      I assume other people will be able to create apps for the Adam, just like Android does…

    • billreyn1967 said, on December 24, 2010 at 02:21

      Yes, other people will be able to make apps for it. That is what the EAP was for. Getting early access to the adam for developing apps. What we are seeing is just what NI has developed for it. Amazing what great apps we are getting for free with adam. Other companies wouldn’t include them. Just charge you for them later. Though, NI knows that by including the apps improves the appeal of adam. Not that it isn’t appealing enough! But it is yet one more thing that sets adam apart from all the other tablets.

  3. Atul Tiwari said, on December 23, 2010 at 18:06

    one of 1st

    • Atul Tiwari said, on December 23, 2010 at 18:21

      yappi really one of the 1st.. cant believe :P
      (sry for double comment… didnt notice)..

      btw, nice FINGER-Painting. :)
      the video is really very fast (was it 4X or more…)… can anybody tell.. how much time does it take in real to draw such a thing in it..(m NOT a painter.. just curious)..

      and does such heavy painting affect the life of the screen ?

    • Rajendra said, on December 23, 2010 at 18:35

      Couple of months for me :(.

    • Tim said, on December 23, 2010 at 20:35

      +++++1

    • Atul Tiwari said, on December 23, 2010 at 19:38

      my comment went down, so reposting the same ques.

      i just want to know that does ADAM support Ad-hoc ?

      coz my samsung galaxy 3 (android 2.1) does not support it. (or if it does .. pls tell me how….I dont have Wifi-router, I hv win 7.. bt my wifi card does not support connectify, therefore no other virtual router )

      I guess it’s one of the most imp feature, many of us (at least I) will need it.

  5. ordzo said, on December 23, 2010 at 18:06
