There have been a few recent updates to the current version of Krita. They include changes to the UI of the transform tools, how background colour works, ongoing work with development in transform masks, Layer Effects, animation plu-in, bugfixes and more! Check out the video and full breakdown of development after the break.
There’s a seperate branch for Layer Effects started. Currently, the plan is to have Layer Effects a seperate thing from Filter Layers and Filter Masks. The reason is to ensure 100% compatibility with PSD, and Layer Effects have some peculiar interactions with eachother that aren’t possible with the current Filter Layers and Masks. We wish you to give the same if not greater flexibility that photoshop offered. That said, current work involve getting saving and loading done right, as well as putting the basic architecture in place.
Boudewijn fixed a bug that would slow down Krita to a standstill due to the tools docker constantly being told that there was a new document, even when just switching out of the program and back in again.
Brush settings returned to the brush editor.
Several crashes have been fixed.
Overall, there’s still quite a few bugs, but every week a major blocker gets fixed.
There’s been correspondence about funding this feature, which is good, because then we can have someone work on this properly instead of during lunchbreaks.
A crash with the spray brush tool has been fixed.
The filter-layer dialogue wouldn’t show it’s preview, resulting in a unwieldy large dialogue that was of no help. Now that the preview thumbnails have been fixed, the dialogue is smaller and more helpful!
The Triangle Color Selector widget has been fixed: It would not communicate well with other color pickers, resulting in it not knowing the color in the Pop-up palette, and giving confusing feedback in the Color-to-alpha dialogue(making it seem as if the filter would erase black instead of white).
Some of Krita’s ICC profiles have been changed or removed. This was partially due to licensing issues(remember, Krita is GPL), and sometimes because the ICC profile itself was dodgy. This does not solve the strange bug with PNGs having weird sRGB profiles yet. If you are experiencing that problem, open and re-save your png with a non-colour managed software, such as GIMP or MS paint. This will strip the profile info.
If you follow the git logs, you may notice a lot of strange little commits that only change one or two lines: This is clean-up of the Calligra code, including Krita. This allows for making porting to QT5 a lot easier, which is the main goal for Krita 3.0.
