I've never heard of isolating the green channel of the normal map and using it as a paint layer. What effect does that create exactly?
WARNING They dont listen to their users as much as they like to say they do. Check their forums. Plenty of requests go unanswered. Their "To Do" list has been outdated. They lack staple features such as a Text Tool, Adjustment Layers, Channels, Layer Styling, Proper Cropping. Paintstorm cant even resize a photo correctly (It will always leave a border when resizes). You also run into square artifacts occasionally. There have also been several instances were paintstorm was detected as malware, once called out, the dev reuploads a clean version. This happened at least twice from forum reports and Virus Total. Aside from the very obvious lack of support and maintinence. The brush system is good. However a good brush engine will not replace the other basic features and functions paintstorm lacks. DO NOT expect support. This is definitely a homegrown app and it shows. If you want a versatile brush engine, clip studio or even krita is where its at.
People Can Fly has announced the opening of two new studios: People Can Fly UK based in Newcastle, UK and the second one in Poland, People Can Fly Rzeszow. Former Ubisoft staff and veteran developers will unite forces to work on an unannounced AAA shooter.
A popular and vibrant city, Newcastle is the northern hub of video games development in the UK, with other AAA studios such as Ubisoft Reflections and Sumo, a wide range of indie developers, and local Universities such as Teesside, Newcastle, and Northumbria hosting a variety of top-flight games courses.
Working alongside the main PCF Warsaw studio and PCF UK is the recently opened Rzeszów studio with around 30 developers that worked on Sniper: Ghost Warrior franchise.
People Can Fly Rzeszów Team
Rzeszow is a growing gaming hub in the southern part of Poland, with many game studios, technical universities that offer gaming and VR courses, and a strong community of gaming enthusiasts.
Since People Can Fly became an independent studio again, our ambition has been to build a team of talented and experienced developers that can develop the best AAA games. We decided in 2017 to open a new studio in Newcastle, the UK, to attract not only local talent, but also to attract the best developers within the UK. We want this team to grow to 20-30 developers within the next 12-18 months. When CI Games decided to restructure its operations, we immediately decided to open a new studio in Rzeszów to allow those great developers to keep on working together as a team, and to contribute to the game we’re working on. Our intention is to give both new studios, in Newcastle and in Rzeszów, the opportunity to work on features or part of the game independently from the Warsaw team – says Sebastian Wojciechowski, CEO, People Can Fly.
All three studios and over 150 developers are currently working on a new IP, a AAA shooter developed alongside Square Enix.
