MyPaint version pre-alpha preview

I know from own experience, that strange things can happen, when the computer is not okay. Please check your RAM and if you overclocked it, turn it down a bit.

Check your cpu-cooler, if it is still properly atached to the cpu.

Benchmark your computer, to see if strange things happen.

I found another issue. Anything inside a selection doesn’t seem to be drawn or updated properly.

How to recreate: Make a selection then switch to a drawing tool (pen, brush or pencil) by clicking on the icons or shortcuts without terminating the selection. Draw within the selection. Your drawing would not be shown until you release your pen or mouse. Try starting your drawing from outside the selection then into the selection, your stoke would not appear in the selection. Same thing happens with the eraser and the polyline tool.

I didn’t do anything fancy with my computer. No overclocking whatsoever. No issue with it either.

The Old Pencil2D works just fine.

It really is just with the alpha version of this software with my particular OS.

Hello MrStevns!

I’m not sure if I asked this before but do you know the reason why the Mypaint version of Pencil2D deforms the colors when painting with transparency paintbrushes? You can see it in this picture if you look closely, it’s large blocks appearing randomly, like it’s pixelating the image but with huge pixels :slight_smile:

@manu Hmm seems as if those were the tiles the canvas use to make image building faster :thinking:

In these cases it might be better to tag @MrStevns so he gets the notification :+1:

Hi Manu

I’ll need to know some more about how to reproduce this as it’s not an issue I’ve seen myself yet.

It’s true what Jose mentions, that the canvas is build on tiles, but that implementation comes from mypaint and we’re not doing much to that data so i’m not sure what would cause such an effect if you’re not able to reproduce that in mypaint itself.

Can you provide some more details, for example:

  • Which brushes do you experience this with
  • Have you configured those brushes?
  • Can you provide the steps or maybe record a session where i can see the effect take place?

btw. i did get the notifications, no need to tag as long as it’s a reply to me ;)

Hi again, ok so now I have found out how to reproduce.

  1. I renamed my old brush folder in %appdata% so Pencil2DMP could create it again with default settings just to make sure none of my old tweaked brushes could affect the test. .
  2. I noticed before that I could only see this if I have more than one layer. (WIll check again that I’m 100% sure) .
  3. I paint one layer “red” just to have something underneath .
  4. I start to paint with a big brush a few other color tones on layer 2 .
  5. On the same layer I change the brush size to a very sharp one to paint the finer details and it is then when you can see the strange effects. . I hope you can reproduce it too :slight_smile: .
