Here are some of the
features currently under development for v5.1
of version 5.1
Some requests from users
of version 5 have been integrated
into version 5.1
Zooming has been improved.
There's now a zoom bar on the
context strip. Also, zooming functions a little different and more
intuitively when the canvass is in a maximized state. Also, using the
keyboard shortcuts to zoom in and out would pop the canvass out of its
Some bugs have been addressed in the exposure sheet that
would cause a crash or unexpected behavior with stereo samples. SOme of
the new tools are also accessible through the exposure sheet: Audio
recording, Frame painter
There are numerous new
There are new options under the symmetry tool menu, which
has been moved near to the pressure tools. The new options include mirror horizontal and
vertical modes. These let you paint in real time
while seeing a symmetrical mirror image. The new modes work with more
that just drawing, so that you can do symmetrical effects on particles,
and filters too.
We've done some fine
tuning to the interface so things fit
a little better on various screen sizes including wee little netbooks
at 1024x600 and big O' screens of 1600x900 or so.
Particles and bristle brushes are now accessible from the media browser.

stored and retrieved for panels that
are tacked, including the brush settings panel and particles panel.
There's now a media
category for 'paint on alpha'

paint with it.
Smear mode (and paint
smear) has been overhauled so it
doesn't gradually get darker and darker.
"Might" have fixed bug with brush strokes

"Might" have fixed a crash when resampling an
image up (say
2x) (not related to crash when resampling with layers)
More great new features(!)related
to the Exposure Sheet for character animation and Lip Synching, audio
recording and such. See the tutorials for samples
Audio Recorder has
been added to quickyl record voice bits into Wave files. The audio
recorded can be accessed from the killer plugins panel (Misc category)
and also from the Moth plugin (aka the Exposure sheet). (tutorials)
Frame Painter was
added also to further support the creation of animations.
Frame painter works great with short anims, say just one or two frames,
that you want to turn into longer animations such as dialogues. Imagine
you have 3-4 frames of various poses from a speech or dialogue, and you
convert this into a lively animation that is seconds long at 30fps.
Plus, it makes your still frames come to life with automatic wiggle
