Mischief being the boundless-page sketchbook tool that was purchased in part because of the ADF technology's promise, as seen here:


it's a good tool within its limits, but don't expect to make great art with it so much as brainstorm. It also does not help that the chief researcher who implemented ADFs has left The Foundry, and that updates to the tool have gone spare for over a year. Caveat Emptor with Mischief and Kanova.

And for a brief primer on what ADFs are basically and what they bring to the table in terms of 2D and 3D creation, look at this article from around the time this tool was bought out. But basically, it's a very interesting way of combining the flexibility of pixels with the compactness of vector-based linework (with the unfortunate side-effect that Mischief cannot export vector art of any sort despite using vector-like methods)
