Title: RE: [Gimp-developer] Plugin brush tool

I spent most of today trying to accomplish this type of plugin within photoshop, only to find out that it was not possible...so, I'd rather not have to go through the same thing with Gimp tomorrow..

In general what i'd like to accomplish is the following:

-poll the position of the brush on the canvas, or even better would be to receive notifications as to the position of the brush as it moves
-using this historical position to mathematically calculate a specific colour to use for the brush

Ideally I'd like to be able to just change the foreground colour of the brush, but still preserve artists ability to use different brush heads, opacties, etc...

So, just thought I'd be a bit more explicit in what I'm trying to accomplish before I jump into the code.

Please let me know if there's reason to believe that I won't be able to accomplish this kind of plugin without making changes throughout the core codebase.

there is a lot of control already available.  you can make animated
brushes or you can paint with a gradient or just use colors from a
specific palette.

probably the best place to start would be at the gimps paint and brush
