Long time Inkscape user trying out my drawing tablet on GIMP for the first
time. I've only really used GIMP to manipulate photographs before.
With Inkscape, there is a mass setting (not velocity) so that the physical
stylus and the virtual pen doesn't move at a 1:1 ratio. With the mass setting
on LOW, every movement of the physical stylus is tranlated exactaly to the
screen; with HIGH mass the virtual pen becomes less responsive so that small
tremmors in your hand are smoothed out.
Here's another way to explain what happens. With a high mass, it's not just
like it's zoomed in on the image. The painbrush simply becomes hard to move
and one has to move the physical stylus a far distance to move the virtual
brush. In a way, setting the mass setting on the pen to HIGH is like the
opposite of the "apply jitter" setting.
Playing with high mass and low mass allows for many artistic effects in
Inkscape. Does something like this exist in GIMP?
