Dynamic Draw v3 (Christmas 2021)

Recommended Posts

Released version 3 fixing a lot of things and implementing some important requests, the biggest which is overwrite and erasing.

Basic tablet support for huion/wacom with pressure sensitivity
It might work with other tablets too. Check out the pressure sensitivity section, where you can map pressure to settings.

GUI changes and tweaks everywhere

Including bugfixes, substantial improvements to everything, performance increases, and there's even a toolbar at the top now.

Eraser tool, Overwrite blend mode
Overwrite blend mode at 255 transparency is what most people expect from an eraser. Eraser erases back to the image as it was when opened.
You can permanently save settings as brushes. There's some default ones too.

Symmetry origin and Multi-point symmetry mode

The symmetry origin tool lets you change the symmetry location. Switch to the symmetry origin tool while in multi-point mode to click to define offsets of the mouse where it will draw in brush mode. Right-click near one to delete it, or ctrl + right click to delete all.

Canvas rotation and zoom clamp
You can now rotate the canvas. It rotates around the center right now, so if you're zoomed in, it might look weird. Zooming clamps to the edges, so you have to try a lot harder to lose the canvas. But if you do, pressing zero will bring it back.

HSV color mixing
When No Mixing is off, you can now mix the brush color with the original colors. All default images are gradients now, just for more fun.

Seamless drawing
No guarantees when the brush is larger than the canvas, otherwise it'll be seamless.

Some really good stuf in there ^.


Unfortunately my problems with the Ugee M1000L persist. What I've found:


According to the Setup utility, pressure sensitivity is being sensed




The placement of the BF/DD editing window is useable only on the primary monitor.


I'll keep playing....

The mouse problems are even more extreme if I'm using the Brush Factory/ DirectDraw window on my second monitor. I'm guessing this is because the placement of the doubled pointer is still on the primary monitor.


I did get it to work briefly using the tablet yesterday - but I was unable to reproduce the settings which made it happen.


A reboot seems to have made it much more stable. I'm actually able to use the tablet to draw stuff!


I'll keep playing and report back.
