Painting With Light is a free video mapping software application written by digital artist Alex May.
It is somewhat like any paint program you may have used (such as Paint for Windows, Adobe Photoshop, or GIMP) but designed to be used with a video projector (although you don’t need one to try it out) so instead of drawing on your computer screen, you are able to draw on the world around you.
Also unlike all other paint programs, you can immediately paint with animated video and shifting colour effects, creating vibrant and dynamic physical 3D compositions.
Download it now for Microsoft Windows, Apple Mac OSX, and Ubuntu Linux 12.04
You won’t need a powerful computer or a video projector to try it out and you can draw with your mouse or laptop trackpad (although graphics tablets are supported and recommended).
