Description of Excentro 1.8.3

Excentro is a simple but advanced tool that can Create guilloche designs like backgrounds, borders or rosettes.

The guilloches are vintage design elements that were frequently used for anti-counterfeiting security purposes on banknotes, passports, checks and certificates during the past two hundred years. As the times changed and digital copy and printing technologies perfected, guilloches no longer presented sufficient security measures that could prevent forging and counterfeiting of valuable papers. Today the main part of security technology lies in the special paper or tricky inks the designs are printed upon or with.

Still, it is too early to say that the days of guilloche designs are over. They can still be used to prevent the counterfeiting of products that do not require the highest level of security (i.e. theater tickets, diplomas or gift certificates). Or, they can just be used to decorate and add some aesthetic value to a product giving the ‘money-like’ look and value.

Features:

1. Excentro interface

Each document in Excentro has three distinct areas to display: ‘Preview’, ‘Structure’ and ‘Layers’.

‘Preview’ and ‘Layers’ are similar to the windows of other graphic design applications: ‘Preview’ displays guilloche graphics with the magnifications specified, ‘Layers’ shows back-to-front order of paths and allows the designer to Arrange which objects are below or above.

The ‘Structure’ area is the key Highlight of Excentro. It illustrates the process of guilloche construction with graphic objects presented as interconnected ‘bases’ and ‘elements’.

2. Fast guilloche creation

With Excentro you can create all popular kind of guilloches: backgrounds, bands, frames, rosettes. The underlying principle is similar to that of mechanical guilloche machines from the past and is based on the ‘Movement’ of drawing an ‘object’ over a path created in a similar way in previous steps.

Requirements: Mac OS X 10.5 or higher
Platform: PowerPC / Intel
