Position smoothing was Hej Stylus!' v1.0 only feature – now free for everybody.
When activated the slider works in 2 dimensions. Up/Down to select the final size of the offset/size. Left/Right to determine the max. value of the slider.
This means you can (by pulling to the left) adjust the slider to have a range of f.e. 10 pixels. Then you can use up/down to fine-tune.
A great new addition to the set! Fast, leightweight, follows up. Comes with a space constant.
1st slider: Smoothing Power 2nd slider: Physics Power
Pro Tip: Combine with tiny amounts of Fluid Position – you’ll see..
This algorithm compares your cursor position to its prior one. Drag the slider a bit to remove small noise – drag it all up to draw straight lines.
Pro Tip: If you need an indicator activate ‘Position Pull’ and pull its slider to zero (all the way down).
Fluid Pressure builds up smooth and nicely – Good for fine tip inking.
'Buffers up Scotty!' – smooth tips on both sides!
Fluid Rotation and Tilt
Smoothes the twist and/or tilt of your stylus!
Painting with large, rake-like brushes is now more powerful than ever before.
Linear Pressure Mapping
Emulate hart/soft media behavior – even invert pressure.
- tap icon to activate / deactivate - choose a mapping range - bottom left = 0% Pressure - top right = 100% Pressure
Bezier Pressure Mapping
If you prefer curves over lines I'd suggest this one. It acts even smoother than linear mapping, comes with sticky handles.
- tap icon to activate / deactivate - choose a mapping range - I = 0% Pressure - II = 100% Pressure
Draw Pressure Mapping
Blazing fast, great for various FX. This is for pressure nerds.
- tap icon to activate / deactivate - draw a mapping range - bottom left = 0% Pressure - top right = 100% Pressure
Linear Ruler Tool
Instant ruler – activate ruler function and drag on the canvas – a ruled line plots instantly.
Vanishing point – click on the canvas, one ruler point locks, now draw lines to or through that locked point.
Ruler – click on the canvas, 2nd point locks, now draw ruled lines anywhere, drag on the helper line between the two dots to reposition ruler, click on one of the points to pick it up again, doubleclick to start over.
Bendy ruler - drag on the center mark of the ruler to bend it, draw bent lines anywhere on the canvas.
Instant circle – click on the canvas to place centerpoint,now draw circles around that centerpoint.
Locked circle – click a second time to ‘lock’ the circle, you still can draw circles as before but you can repositionthe centerpoint by drag or click-pick-up.
Elipsis – drag out the radius point to convert the circle to an elipsis.
Now two squares mark the elipsis form.
Drag to maipulate, doubleclick to convert the elipsis to ‘locked circle’ with the radius of the elipsis point you’ve chosen.
Click on centerpoint to pick up / lay down the position of the elipsis.
Precise Angles Panel
Activate the precise angles panel by clicking the icon on top of the panel.
Next comes the visual indication of all the set angles.
The little icons below represent commonly used angle setups to draw in: 90°,45°, 60°, 30°, 15° and 75°. These shorthands are built in - you can use the presets panel to store your own presets.
The next part of the panel is for entering the angles manually (you can get very specific here). Set a checkmark and enter a value to activate the angle.
Pull the slider to the far right to only draw with the set angles. The less influence of the magnet the more you can ‘drift’ off the set angles.
