Based on innovative AI detection algorithm technologies, Candera’s Smart Photoshop Importer has one major goal: to speed up the whole HMI creation process.

Online PR News – 15-September-2020 – 15/9/2020 - Linz - Austria – With the release of CGI Studio 3.9 Candera provides new and unique features to take usability of HMI creation to the next level. The new core feature of 3.9 is a preview of a smart AI -based Photoshop Importer bringing static UI artworks to life with only a few clicks. In fact, this Smart Photoshop Importer enables to rapidly import Photoshop files into CGI Studio in order to automatically transform them into full functional HMIs. The technology behind this tool is an AI based UI/UX element detection and mapping technology that will help especially designers to save precious time and costs.

The future will bring more graphical user interfaces than ever before. This growing demand not only affects the usability expectations in the development process but also extends the group of people working with UI development tools. “We noticed a major transformation within the HMI creation process,” says Reinhard Füricht, CEO of Candera. “Designers and graphic artists are gaining importance and need to deliver quick results, including full functional HMIs - without the need of professional or community-support.” Based on this awareness, already within its last product releases Candera strongly focused on advanced usability features like ready-to-use HMI controls, automated workflows and integrated state machines. “With CGI Studio 3.9 we have gone one step further,” so Reinhard. “The integrated Smart Photoshop Importer will especially leverage designers’ creativity by simplifying the composition process as far as possible.”

Based on innovative AI detection algorithm technologies, Candera’s Smart Photoshop Importer has one major goal: to speed up the whole HMI creation process. Indeed, whilst other HMI design tools oblige the user to manually add functionality to each single element of their UI artwork, Candera’s Smart Photoshop Importer will handle this job automatically. It imports the PSD files into CGI Studio, detects relevant components like gauges, sliders, buttons and many more and adds the most probable functionality to each of these elements. All the user has to do is to double-check and – in some cases – do small manual adaptions.

Users of CGI Studio 3.9 will get to know first features in a preview of a Smart Photoshop Importer, the next
releases will include the Smart Photoshop Importer in its full functionality.
