Hi @chchwy and other volunteers!
Now that our site allows to login, I am now going to describe my last impressions of the NightlyBuild from 01July2016
First check here the animation, sort of, that I made using this build. It is called Timing Spacing and Painting
Timing Spacing and Painting
I just got some images examples from Internet and use them in order to get an exact idea/felling of what Timing and Spacing would look like.
So, now my review for the NightlyBuild 01July2016
When changing my monitor resolution (its height value), the TimeLine in Pencil2D keeps tracking it and resizes accordingly. So, when having several number of layers (12 for instance), the Timeline will not allow to be fully resized in order to see all layer till the bottom one.
[I thought it was worth to mention it, even if it is not a bug ]
The BucketTool does not work well when using it in addition with a colour Alpha different tan the default 255 value
For checking this: open Pencil2D > draw a basic closed shape > choose a colour on the ColourWheel > change its Alpha Value to something different from 255 > choose the BucketTool and go to the shape to fill it. At the end, it will not fill the whole shape but will “fill” it with just one horizontal line for each try.
Example: Choose any pre-defined colour on the “ColourPalette” window (for instance the colour named “Green”). Go to the ColourWheel Panel and select a different colour (RED, for instance).
Checking now you will see that a “new” pre-define RED-color is placed on the List, replacing the GREEN one. I believe it should not behave like that because it is just adding the same changes of the ColourWheel selection and for that order all other colours are not protected and will eventually change without warning, and that does not make any sense since all colours have their specific name displayed next to its colour.
Another thing is that there is the “plus” for AddingColour feature. There should also have a Removecolour feature
-make the pre-defined colours on the ColourPalette’s List to be independent of the ColourWheel changes
-add a RemoveColour feature on the ColourPalette panel
Issue with the BrushTool
Here another thing with the FEATURE Tool mentioned above on my previous post #28699. Now it is behaving differently because I was using the NightlyBuild from 01July2016.
Select the BrushTool. UNCHECK the “Use Feather?” feature (in the Options Panel) and have the “Pressure” option SELECTED: the result will bring strokes with NO pressure sensitivity. Not selecting this Feather option works the same way as Not selecting Pressure sensitivity
Request: to allow independent use of the Feather and Pressure options
Is there a way to use the MoveTool (hotkey Q) in addition with the “arrow keys” on the keyboard in order to execute precise moves of objects along the X and Y axis AND allowing additional extra functionality for moving them “x5” or “x10” times faster along the canvas?
Right now it is a bit of time consuming for instance if we want to move an object from right to left because as default the “arrow keys” only allows to move objects one (1) millimetre at the time
Request: add a shortcut for Speed Precise Move 5xrigth/left 5xup/down (or even 10x faster)
it is all
Keep animating your life!
