Use the design tools you already know to create stunning photorealistic onscreen mockups with a click. Context links with Illustrator to allow you to see your concepts realized side-by-side, while you work.
LiveSurface Context allows designers to fluidly visualize their ideas in real-world contexts.
Visualize realistic embossing, foil, silk screen, letterpress and more all without leaving Illustrator.
Hundreds of hi-res object and scene surfaces; just a drag-and-drop away.
Output hi-res presentation-ready TIFF, JPG or PNG renderings from Context with a click.
Visualize while you work.
Context’s Live View window floats over the Illustrator artboard, providing a preview of your design concepts in the real-world. Because it works in tandem with Illustrator, going from design idea to a real-world implementation is as easy as clicking Apply Artwork.
Context ships with a set of Live Inks built in. Simply add a new Live Ink swatch to Illustrator’s Swatches panel from the Context panel and fill or stroke your artwork with that swatch. When Context generates the preview in the Live View window it replaces your flat artwork with photorealistic inks. And fine-tuning is easy: click Adjust to edit things like lighting, reflections, emboss depth and transparency in realtime.

Hundreds of surfaces
From billboards to boxes, stationery to vehicles, Context contains a completely remastered version of our image library, built to take advantage of Context’s powerful features.
Context allows you to choose from hundreds of surfaces and smartly organizes and updates them to allow you to work fluidly, forget file management, and just focus on design.
The quality you expect.
We’ve completely reworked our industry-standard library of hundreds of hi-res, professionally photographed objects and scenes to update them for Context. Each surface has expanded surface details to enable lighting and reflection effects. And we’ve added Plus Surfaces: surfaces that are built at hi-res with meticulous texturing details to be rotated and resized in realtime.
