Next version (version 4) log

Post by Oscar »

Here is a log of current and planned major changes for version 4

- (DONE) Preset tab (large preset window; one line per preset with description, search capability), also ability to delete presets, open in AOP Editor etc...
- (DONE) Start/Stop buttons always visible on Painter tab
- (DONE) favorites , groups for presets
- (DONE) custom settings in favorites
- (DONE) During painting we can select certain brush to manually assist
- (DONE) set also different probabilities and bans for brushes. This can be saved in favorites.
- (DONE) Soft Reveal Brush - paint reveal layer with mouse over important objects to reveal smooth detail (sort of Interactive portrait mask)
- (DONE) Underpaint Reveal Brush - reveal underpaint with mouse during detasil brush
- (DONE) Improved Dry reveal that tries to avoid single pixel pinholes (that can be seen with the older dry reveal on some cases)
- (DONE) Saving more complex layered PSD with separated underpaint and detail transparent layers, canvas background, canvas texture and dry reveal layer
- (DONE) Saving transparent PNG snapshots of underpaint and detail layer either cumulative or non-cumulative during pause.
- (DONE) Adding new parameters such as random brush transparency
- (DONE) Color Adjustment of final image Tab
- (DONE) Integration with reactor - the AOP preset can use internal functions or call reactor prepared flows (ex: Outline, Turbulence, Dynamic eff...)
- (DONE) injecting complex reactor process at various stages: pre-processing of image, dry reveal stage (before/replace/after), post processing
- (DONE) vector outlines designer (new tab) - outlines will be vectorized then traced with a brush/pen/pencil then merged with the image
- (DONE) Overlay tab sent where it belongs (TRASH bin), instead we have Layers that work similarly to photoshop layers where you can add textures, resize the layers etc. Pretty powerful.
-(DONE) A small label displays the current stage of painting and also a progress bar to know how long the stage runs.
-(Done 99%) A larger optional guide that gives you better description about each step, what to do and when.
- (DONE) Ability to set pause or stop in AOP designer (now called Template Editor) after certain number of brushes in detail stage
-(DONE) open input image directly in PhotoBlend for editing collages. Clicking Save Project will update the collage in Auto-Painter. (Need Photo-Blend 2.2)
-(DONE) open vfbox directly in Photo-Reactor (Need PR 1.1)
-(DONE) Retouch tab - you can add or remove details with underpaint, soft and input brushes after painting is done. This is same as during painting with Soft Reveal Brush/ Underpaint Reveal Brush but it can be done after the painting is done. Additionally you can brush in the original image. This could be great for things like eyes etc.

TO DO
- create usable reactor flows for the above
- create/modify presets with reactor flows
- new presets

- other suggestions and fixes from the suggestion thread.

I would love "- favorite presets (?), preset groups (?)" and I'm waiting for the new outline function!

The new preset panel with search, favorites and grouping tool looks like this so far:
You practically have a notebook sheet where you can freely add preset icons, text and other elements and design it the way you want.
This way you can make sense of hundreds of your favorite templates or even add various notes to them.
Also you can add preset with your own custom settings (like brush, palette etc..)

Can't wait for the integration with PhotoReactor! This should give us some amazing options!
