The Foundry's Making New Mischief on Mac and PC

The makers of Nuke, Modo and a host of other high-end 3D modeling and design programs are welcoming a new 2D digital art app to their arsenal. Starting today, The Foundry is making Mischief.

Originally debuting in 2013 from the Made by Mischief team, the Mischief app made a name for itself as the 2D art app with an infinite canvas powered by a patented technology known as Adaptively Sampled Distance Fields (ADFs). Utilizing a relatively small file structure that retains strokes and shapes with accuracy akin to vector graphics, Mischief gives artists the ability work on a single canvas without having to ponder pixel density or page size until they're ready to export a given project -- either as a Mischief file or a .PNG.

As Mischief joins The Foundry, it's going even further with its borderless functionality by introducing a cleaner, tablet-optimized UI along with more robust tools. Users now have access to better brush customization features, color controls, background papers, programmable hotkeys, moveable and collapsible tool bars, plus refined file export options.

Starting today users can experiment with the app's canvas technology by downloading Mischief-Free, a basic version of the app with limited features but the same limitless canvas. Those seeking to unlock the full version of Mischief including all of the features outlined above can find it in the Mac App Store and the Mischief online store for $25.00. Those who've already purchased the previous version of Mischief will be able to upgrade to the new full version for free.
