Isometric straight lines, inpossibile...


Recommended Posts

I was trying to make isometric art with Paint dot Net and I realised that it is impossible. First is that it cannot draw straight lines, that does not mean that I have anti-aliasing turned on, it means that when I try to make that isometric line that`s 2 pixels left (or right) and one row up, it always draws only one pixel in one row at the beginning of the line; and the second is that every time when you draw a line it shows the edit points on the line and if you get too close to the line and click, and keep the mouse button pressed it will morph the previous line. Isn`t it possible to make a plugin that fixes this problem? I hope I expressed myself properly, and everybody understood what I wanted to say.

Thank-you in advance,

1.

Have a look at the oblique plugin:

Draw a straight line then 'oblique' it...

2.

Try to hold shift while you draw the line it will constraint it to standard angles...

3.

When you want to restart a new line from the previous point, press 'Enter' to finish the previous line...

Hope what will help you..

Plugins cannot do tools. They can only do effects, adjustments, and filetypes.

 

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

Thank-you MadJik for your suggestions, but hardly any helped me. Firstly, I`m not really interested in using plugins, and really not ANY that forces anti-aliasing, and david.atwell is right. Secondly I have tried the method by holding shift, but that cannot draw isometric straight lines. I also thank-you very much for telling me about pressing enter after the line is done.
