Status update:
Even though I unceremoniously borrowed the brunt of it the maths to do this still broke my brain a bit:

Not perfect, but getting there.

Two updates in a day!

This one should make @Burvey and any Blade Runners present happy :)

Image

This is all thanks to the unified control system I'm implementing - which makes adjusting nearly everything on the screen using the standard controls possible. Stay tuned for more.

Try control e to export. It may depend on which version you're using though.

If I don't finish the partset by the end of this week I'll just put up what's already there so you guys can play around with the new things.

Seems like Burvey already helped you out, but in the next bigger version the quick help should be back to avoid this sort of panic :)

Thanks! Still plenty to do, but it's getting somewhere.

I get the idea, but it would just strangely flicker if done like this (besides confuse the undo system). I might look into a real-time mirror "modifier", but in the future.

So that this isn't just replying to positive feedback here's a little status update.

Colors
Since the HSL effect workaround was a little messy (the pixels came back on extra high or low brightness) I started doing some research and ended up on a thread with a similar problem and a solution provided. The result is a new effect: Adjust HSB - effect-adjust-hsb_t123286

So, hopefully, color mush is a thing of the past.

Selection (Or - A Story of optimization)
So one thing that keeps on changing is the way selected shapes are shown - it started with just the gizmos, then went onto shaking, then somewhat rough outlines, then outlines that were basically achieved by scaling the part so at times the corners would be ugly up to fairly decent ones in the latest published version.

How selection outline basically worked was - a layer above the rest with additive blending - we draw a larger or shifted white copies of the original shape and then draw a black copy of the original shape. In the latest version this was 5 extra shapes for each selected shape - since the background white shape was shifted in a cross formation. In code it looked like this:

Image

If you did a Select All a more complex project the slowdown was tangible - since we basically had x5 of all shapes, each with shader effects runing.

So I went around looking for a solution - R0J0 had a rather nice outline effect, but it was somewhat imited - but with a little work (read: blindly pasting things in from other things and hoping they work - after about 30 versions they did, heh) I had a new version. It takes your shape:

Image

Zeroes the original pixels to black and adds 8 shifted copies around it and makes them white:

Image

Then we just place this on an additive layer and have a really neat selection effect:

Image

I hope this works on all systems, but if it doesn't I can put the previous clumsy version in as a toggleable backup solution. Performance-wise this should be rather good as the GPU does all the heavy lifting.

More to come.

Edit: Here's the effect, if you need it: https://www.dropbox.com/s/vwvgvb2syvpvb ... addon?dl=0
