View Full Version : Gimp rotating brushes in development

From the gimp-devel mailing list:

For those of you who don'tṫ follow trunk closely or the irc channel, I can't resist the urge to tell that Alexia Death and Mich have been working on brush dynamics over the last few days - and have thus far added brush rotation. It now works both as a fixed factor and following painting direction.
(as any brand new feature, it still buggy and error prone, but they are actively fixing everything)

That's really exciting.

That is fantastic news. Thanks for the information.

I wonder what other brush dynamics they might be working on?

I was just thinking how it would be awesome if, using the stroke selection feature in GIMP, I could use the smudge brush to stroke away from the selection, with a bit of jitter. Right now... I don't know if it can do that (I'm thinking no, based on my previous use of the Stroke selection feature...)

Anyway, still very cool, and I can definitely see some use for this. Hope they get the bugs worked out.

Awesome news! Sounds nice and something long overdue...
