Stitch ERA Liberty offers you the most complete and innovative set of tools. Its features will let you create new designs quick and easy, combining automated functions with those who allow you to have precise control over each design element.
Stitch ERA Liberty has been developed for the most demanding designer: powerful and very productive.
Even with that power, the easy way to use makes it suitable for every embroiderer that wants to make designs by themselves, who after doing an entertained apprenticeship, will achieve works so impressing as if were made by experts.
Stitch ERA Liberty integrates in the same application, the functionality of embroidery with the functionality of graphic applications. For example, it can work perfectly with pixel (raster) or vector files, vectorizing the pixel file to get vector shapes, creating new vector shapes and processing them individually or by blocks (modifying shapes, nodes, combining, etc.) and then using them in the embroidery object creation. All this, without getting out of this unique application.
Stitch ERA Liberty also allows you to create new components, when you want to improve your design productivity and at the same time, extend the number of software resources.
All is included in Stitch ERA Liberty. You will need no other separate applications to create and/or process embroidery designs: modify and process pre-existing expanded designs (edition, scaling, merging, etc.), lettering system, object design, with the most complete set of tools and stitch types, raster images, vector images, image processing and converting, automatic digitizing, manual digitizing, interactive digitizing, format conversion, component creation, design management, catalog printout, etc.
Designs created with Stitch ERA Liberty are ready to run on most home embroidery and professional machines.
