will paint dot net ever have LIVE TRACING PLUgin

Recommended Posts

my friend has illustrators and he has this plugin thats included in the software that allows scanned pictures to be trace to digital format and in a matter of minutes hes already able to to start coloring his artwork. i was shock at this plugin ability it freezes(hardcore lagging) my friends computer for about a good minute but the result still amazes me

im tired of the time consuming effort required to trace my scanned drawings with the line/curve tool.. question is does anyone kno of a plugin similar to "live Trace" it would save me so much time

thanks n advance

actually, you don't really need to do all that. just scan your picture as a text document if it's already inked. this will clean up pencil marks.

then on PDN, change the blend mode of the lineart layer [the art you just scanned] to mutiply. then make subsequent layers under it as color. ^^ i learned this on Deviantart and it really helps in a long run since i am not the best at erasing my pencil marks. ^^;

if you get stuck again, i suggest looking up tutorials on deviantart, even if they are photoshop. this forum is great but it's mostly for item creation, not coloring and the like.
