Custom Brushes Plugin 5.1.5


Recommended Posts

By the way, in case anyone is confused - the box above the brush listing is the search textbox. There is no search button because it searches as you type.

As a usability suggestion, I recommend doing what some other UI's I've seen do: they start out by drawing the text "Search ..." in a lighter color, in italics, inset in the text box. Then when you finally click on the text box it clears out.

At this point, I think this is polished enough to merit a sticky, assuming you're still hard at work addressing concerns (specifically those given by pyro and Rick, since they actually know what they're talking about ;-)). Keep working on it, you're doing an excellent job.

Sticky'd

 

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.

Just wondering, is there any way to implement a way to change the size of the brush in a different way than the mouse scroll?

If anyone here uses a graphic tablet, like myself, we miss out on that function.

Mabye holding Ctrl increases it and Alt decreases? Just a suggestion.

I thought most people using graphic tablets had mice as well.

Would it be possible to have an option where you can select the blending of the brush. So say we have a image of a feild, then run custom brush on it we can select diffrence... If you understand? I know this can be done manually but i think it would be a nice addition.

Do you mean feathering?

No. In layer properties there is a option called Layer Blending. I was wondering if u could implement that on ur plugin

I might look into it - but I have higher priorities with this plugin.

I understand that, thanks for taking it into consideration

To do what Rick suggested, use:

[DllImport("user32.dll", CharSet = CharSet.Unicode)]

private static extern IntPtr SendMessage(IntPtr hWnd, int Msg, IntPtr wParam, string lParam);

In the constructor:

SendMessage([name of the search textbox].Handle, 0x1501, IntPtr.Zero, "Search...");

You mean I don't have to implement it manually?

Just one quick bug report, when you change the brush colour it only has a difference in "mask brush mode" and not "colour brush mode". This occurs when a colour other than black is selected in "colour brush mode" the plug-in still renders a black and white image. I may be totally wrong here but i don't think you intended it to do this.

Excellent work Simon you're doing a great job, keep it up. I look forward to seeing future updates of this as I'm sure many others will be too.

Good luck :D

I have enjoyed this plugin, but am having some trouble. It hangs for quite some time while rendering, and sometimes freezes PDN altogether. This may be a future bugfix, but wasn't sure. I have read about this problem in the thread, and tried making a subfolder in effects. However, by doing this, the effect disappeared from the effects menu. Some people may have faster computers, more ram, or I have messed up my computer in some way to keep it from working properly :oops:

They do, that's what I'm using now, though most of them don't have a scroll wheel implemented into them.

I did intend it to do that. This is because in masked brush mode the colour of the brush is not preserved - hence the reason for the two different modes.

Rick, you might end up making a Custom Brushes board. XD, this is an awesome plugin, needs a little bit of work but the potential is beyond comprehension!

This has been already discussed and lets just say wait a while because there may be a facility coming on my part.
