Explore the new features.

Vector Shape Tool

Colorway 5.1 introduces the ability to create and manipulate vector shapes directly in the canvas, allowing you to easily create tech packs and other supporting content for your designs. In addition to being able to create simple vector graphics within your projects, you can easily import externally created SVG’s and edit them within Colorway, for more design capabilities at the early stages of your design project.

Line Review Tool

The Line Review tool allows you to easily create global line reviews using multiple projects, created by multiple users, so that you can collate and review seasonal ranges, without the need to export each project individually, whilst also being able to jump directly into each individual project to show, hide or edit individual variations. The template option allows you to simply create a template for your line reviews, so you can easily select multiple projects for review. Adding in some simple vector shapes allows you to stylize your line review for a more appealing way of reviewing multiple designs.

Texture Subdivision

The additions to the Texture Subdivision tool, introduced in Colorway 5.0, provide easier selection, zooming and creation of layers, utilizing a color extraction technique, for a quick, but accurate subdivision of imported materials for use on your assets. The Texture Subdivision tool speeds up and enhances the material and color exploration capabilities within Colorway and helps you create more interesting and complex variations, quicker.

Color Extraction

The Color Extraction tool allows you to accurately and efficiently extract colors from any imported content, so that you can quickly create new palettes from images for use on your variations within your project. This easy to use addition allows you to directly reference and utilize colors from imagery to inspire your designs. Utilizing the Select Range slider allows you to streamline the extraction process by simply selecting the number of layers you wish to create, based on the number of colors visible within the image.

PBR Shader Materials

Colorway 5.1 brings support for a PBR material workflow. Allowing you to easily use texture layers as a source of Metalness and Roughness/Glossiness, as well as the ability to quickly add in HDRI images to create more photorealistic visualization of your variations, without the need to re-render your assets.
