|Download and Installation|
Download the file, save it in a temp folder, in MyDocuments or on the desktop. Then double-click it to run it.
The installer will need version 2.0 already installed (full or upgraded from 1.x). It can also be applied on top of a patched version 2.0b, 2.0c or 2.0d installation, but of course not over 1.x nor on the 2.0 demo version.
Note: The installer will look for v2.0 in the specified folder, and you should make sure that the correct location is specified before you complete the installation. This is important, especially if you have multiple versions such as a demo version or the free v1.11b still on the same PC in addition to the full 2.0 installation.
If you still don't have the full version 2, what are you waiting for?
New in This Patch ...
New is the latest, improved mouth plugin (Exposure Sheet) introduced originally in the 2.0d patch, with the following features:
Also: there are several improvements made in the Timeline editor, such as Spline Interpolation mode (transition of changing filter parameters), an optional Undo, and the ability to stop the rendering in progress.
And last but not least the new Penny plugin, with a new rendering engine for Spline interpolation between recorded positions coming from the mouse or tablet. Here's another screenshot, showing how smooth the fine lines appear. No more line segments even when drawing very quickly with strong curvature.
Project Dogwaffle already
high powered natural media painting engine, with robust custom
brushes and a wealth of tools for creative individuals.
felt that there was still
something missing, something more that could be done with painting on a
computer, and to
that end we are pleased
to introduce an alternate paint engine, complete with some very
powerful new features like
spline interpolation for smoothing the input from a pointing device,
and floating point calculations
for very clean looking graphics.
Penny opens a copy of your
buffer and lets you draw with a mouse or
tablet using fully anti-aliased, spline based lines in several built in
styles like ink, watercolor, and gel. You can also
apply a paper texture and import new papers as well. The results are
super-smooth and natural.
Other improvements include new
eye candy on the status bar.
