Super cool. I'm in the process of decorating my newish condo and would love to use this to create custom wall art. @davitmasia, do you have a trial version of the app available?

@davitmasia @rrhoover This is an awesome product! I love the idea of using it to create custom wall art! It will look great when it's framed and hanged on the wall. I'm also definitively going to try it out for some of my art projects. Davit thanks for the great product and Ryan thanks for the idea!

@amrith Well, this started as a small 1Bit conversion tool for a 3D project using 1Bit textures with some effects. Then i was updating for fun and added colors and palettes and saw that worked i 8-Bit much better than i thought. Also adding all kind of features received from my followers on twitter like Batch procesing or video exporter. After been sold on an assets packs bundle and got the sales increased a lot and see the people interest i started to work full time on it to release in 2018 the standalone version for Win/Mac/linux. And here we are, the app is starting to be featured in various sites that obvious helps me to get some visibility, so thanks to Pete , who added my tool here :P .

Very good concept but unfortunately to much lag on my macbook pro 2014. I will keep an eye on the project and will be happy to buy it if the lag issue is fixed.

@daynox Hi whats your problem? The Apps is HTML5 using NW.JS as wrapper using WebGL for Shaders/Filters. See if your Mac not have the GPU blacklisted or similar that makes run slowly. Various people tested on a macBook Pro from 2011-2013 without problems. Tested Both demos? Same issue?

@davitmasia Thx I will give it an other try and come back to you. Edit: I tried again with both version and it still feel laggy. I also checked if my GPU was blacklisted but it wasn't. Like I said before, I will be happy to try again future version. Good luck :)
