The software allows to create 2D sketches and rendering and it features the use of modern Cintique Tablets. This digital workflow opens an entire new world of image creation. Different to software like Photoshop, Alias allows the use of 3D package data (curves, solids, surfaces) to give the sketching process a real 3d dimension support. An interesting effect when using 3D package data comes up when the same design has to be drawn and presented in lots of different perspective views. The underlying 3D package helps to keep always the correct and realistic perspective view.
