I am actually not a graphist myself, rather a developer, but I am
currently working with one, and we are trying to get to a full
free-software stack. I will probably make a blog post later to details
all the process and all the tricks I learned from various people. :-)
That sounds interesting. I remember Ubuntu Studio as a similar approach
and the website libregraphicsworld.org and am interested in reading your
blog. When I was more often on the Linux side I liked to use
Digikam+GIMP and played around a bit with Darktable.
I don't really understand here. Seems like very close to "Pencil
Generic" which is the default dynamics, isn't it?
I the past I saw 'No Dynamics' or 'Pressure Opacity' as defaults.
For me this is exactly what I got by defaults with "Pencil Generic".
Maybe there is something I did not understand in your new dynamics?
There's no bigger intention behind it. I checked various Dynamics
settings, but overlooked 'Pencil Generic'. So everybody can use 'Pencil
Generic' instead of building a new Dynamics preset.
BTW is there a need to ship these Paint dynamics settings with GIMP?
Obviously no, as we already have the 'Pencil Generic' preset.
Even better: if you plug 2 tablets, you can use different tools on
each (actually tested and working!).
Yes, that's great. The 'Device status' tab gives you a smart way to
switch the settings for each physical pointer device.
What I would love to test is 2 pens for the same tablet: will Gimp
make the difference and record different settings for each pen (we
have 2 tablets, but unfortunately pens on each are not compatible, so
I can't test)? That would be awesome.
Indeed, because it allows a more natural workflow as you described then.
I think another prerequisite is 'multi-pen' support by the tablet. If
the tablet doesn't distinguish multiple pens then no graphics program
will be able to handle them separately. I already saw some tablets with
multi-touch support (like the Wacom Intuos series), maybe they can do
it. But please try and report back ;-)
