After two weeks of the first public beta, I decided to open up the suggestion box with public beta 2.

New in v0.671:
+ Fixed a bug when using tablet opacity with blend tool.
New in v0.67:
+ New improved table pressure opacity handling on solid brushes.
+ New Blend feature, that mixes colors on the canvas with the color in your brush.
+ Huge speed increases in LSD loader. (10x or more)
+ Fixed bug with spacing in angled brushes.
+ Fixed bug with popup text dialog when switching between floating/docked mode.
+ Fixed bug with progress bar popups not disappearing sometimes.
+ Side note: anti-aliased support is gonna be replaced sometime in the future. A few methods were experimented with in this version, but unreleased.

Previous updates can be found here.

So, if there are features you'd like to see added during this stage of public beta testing, now is the time to make your voice heard!

Er, how about a smudge tool like in oekaki bbs? That would be nice...

yah man, you really gotta add that smudge tool in =P
ok, nevermind on the scrolling business. but you still
gotta add in the smudge tool i say, it can't be that horrid.

Lascaux rocks. :)

I noticed that the tool buttons don't correspond to that of Photoshop ... may want to do it, since most people use Photoshop?

I'm compleatly new to the application myself, tho I've used Oekaki and paint BBS just a bit a few times before. so if these are in there, I've just overlooked them, and I'm sorry for wasting space here.
after about an hour of sketching, I realized having a 'clear' button would be usefull, resetting the canvas/steps list to blank, while keeping tool settings/color selection in tact. I think it would make the working environment just a bit more efficient :D

and much more importantly, a space->drag hot key combination to move around the canvas (like a 'quick scroll' feature in PS) presonally I've grown acustom to that setup, and its a great time saver.

other than that its an EXCELENT spin off from Oekaki/BBS! I REALLY like having that tablet plugin, its the ONLY reason I havent used Oekaki/BBS as often as I would like :)

You can clear by deleting layers... if you want a fresh start, reload the page. Middle click or alt+drag lets you grab the canvas and move it around.

i'd like to see a 'select similar color' tool, it'd be useful to get the white from between your black lines if you acidentally use white paint instead of the erasor (like i do alot)
Turtlebuster (edited May 21, 2003)
right click to select a color on the canvas. it has a little trick where it selects the color and hue based on the transparency of the current layer, and then adds the transparency value AGAIN to the color u just selected, so if you are selecting a color on a near transparent layer and start to draw with that color you will have to manually darked then color you've selected to make it match.
*catches breath*

you should be able to continue a drawing with the layers you left it with. that is my only gripe. lascaux lags my computer and so i have to reset and continue drawing - but often i have to redraw a large section of my picture because i put my sketch lines in a layer on top of the main drawing.

If you read my comment before, this board doesn't save LSD format cause they take up too much space. The large lascaux board has it for test purposes but there are some problems in it atm.
Once animation support is complete, that'll save the layers properly.

I love the lascaux!!! It's like Adobe Photoshop 7.0! Hehehe.... It's just like drawing on my home computer but all you peole get to see what I draw. I rate it as a 100!!! :D

Maybe I just couldn't find the tools... but flip/scale/rotate tools are really helpful. it's not even like you have to make it resample nice, but just something to make things easier.
marcello (edited May 26, 2003)
They'll be added eventually...once I figure out how I want to do them.
Sererena (edited May 29, 2003)
I just love Lascaux... It's making it so hard to go back to oekakiBBS or PaintBBS ^^;;
marcello (edited May 29, 2003)
Don't! ;-)
Sererena (edited May 30, 2003)
Oh, by the way, a "pan" tool like the little hand-grabby thing would be nice.
pinhole64 (edited May 31, 2003)
Great Board! I wish I could have one on my site.
Avirex (edited Jun 3, 2003)
Lascuax onwz its cool! and very impressive.
marcello (edited Jun 3, 2003)
Sererena: middle click and drag, or alternatively, alt+click.
Carlucci (edited Jun 4, 2003)
Lascaux is so much easier 2 draw on because it has so much more, it should have 1 of those smudgy tool thingys though. But I love 2draw so keep up the good work on your site! It's really great.
Sererena (edited Jul 5, 2003)
Ummm.... I know you said that the pressure opacity has "improved" on solid brushes, but now.... ick. The way it is now, I can't get it to 100% opacity no matter how hard I press, and it has that gross transparent effect... Myeeehhh put it back the way it was!!!!
marcello (edited Jul 7, 2003)
That's a bug that was there before, just not obvious. I'll fix it in the next version.
mkkmypet (edited Jul 28, 2003)
Meh... Next version... : )

It's kinda fun to go back and read Marcello's old comments and see how attentive he was to his new baby.
