Film Gimp Updated to 0.14

New version adds tablet features, brushes, ILM file format By Dave Nagel
Film Gimp has been updated to 0.14. Film Gimp is an open-source graphic editor targeted toward high-end film work. The new version is available now for Mac OS X and other Unix systems.

Film Gimp is a 16-bit image editor designed to compete with Adobe Photoshop, but with additional tools for working with multi-frame sequences. It's designed to work within any X11 environment, including Apple's own X11, which runs on Mac OS X. The new version adds support for pressure-sensitive tablets with the program's Airbrush tool. It also adds OpenEXR, the HDR file format from ILM, and a new collection of paint brushes. In addition, the Mac-specific installer and launcher, MacFilmGimp, has been updated for the new version. (For Mac users, Film Gimp can also be updated via the Terminal or X11's xterm application through Fink.)
