'Beautiful' Drawn Lines


    Sep 05 2008 | 1:27 pm
    Hi,
    Has anybody managed to achieve nice looking drawing input with either Jit.lcd or preferably Jit.GL.Sketch?
    I have never managed to get a drawn line to look smooth using Jitter to date. I decided to use Processing for a project I am working on for this reason but have rapidly hit blockades with what Processing can do.
    Anybody have any suggestions or an example patch where they have managed to get Jitter to draw 'beautiful' lines?
    Cheers

      this may qualify. It's a start, at least.

      I'm thinking more MS paint - pen style - drawing.
      Using Jit.Gl.Sketch in combination with the mouse position and a lineto message produces a nasty stepped line. Is there any way to make a nicer line than this?
      Cheers

      I think somewhere deep in the archives is a patch that Nesa wrote to do photoshop-style drawing.

      I think this is the one Nesa made. Fantastic patch. It was called "Super-simple opengl painting program" or something. Here it is:
      There's also "jsui_spherepen-example.pat"

      That is so much better. With a bit of tweaking it can be made to look pretty good.
      Cheers for that. Big help.
