Default Backdrop Designer from Digital Anarchy

Backdrop Designer creates digital backdrops for use with photos or other graphics. The key word here is "backdrops," because this is not just another pattern generator. Backdrop Designer can create digital equivalents of painted muslin backdrops by combining color patterns with bump maps of draping materials, and then adjusting the result as you see fit. And the best part is it works. I was able to easily create backdrops that match the look and feel of real photographic backdrops. And beyond that, I could change the hues, add shadow patterns, or even create backdrops that go beyond the traditional look.

Backdrop Designer works as a plug-in, runs on PC or Mac, and costs $199. There is a full demo version available that watermarks the results. If you are interested in trying it, I strongly recommend that you view the brief tutorial movies first. Also, make sure you test backdrops that are the size and type you will be using, so you can get an idea of the speed.
