Brush dynamics

Post#1 by RJKD » 11 Jul 2017, 15:30


Two fold question - what is the default setting for brush dynamics, (no dynamics or basic)? Is there a way to alphabetically list brush dynamics?

Interesting question.
You would think that dynamics-off would be default but this a brand new ie. empty Gimp profile, untouched as-yet by human hand ;)

Image

and Pressure-Opacity is default.

You can open open up the dynamics dialog as a separate window, it is ordered, just a bit longer than my VM window so the list of stock dynamics is

Basic-Dynamics
Basic-Simple
Color-From-Gradient
Confetti
Dynamics-Off
Dynamics-Random
Fade-Tapering
Negative-Size-Pressure
Pencil-Generic
Pencil-Shader
Pen-Generic
Perspective
Pressure-Opacity
Random-Color
Speed_Size_Opacity
Tilt-Angle
Track-Direction
Velocity-Tapering

Edit: If you look in the main Gimp configuration file which is gimprc in the 'etc' folder the default should be dynamics off

Code: Select all

# Specify a default dynamics.  The dynamics is searched for in the specified
# dynamics path.  This is a string value.
# 
# (default-dynamics "Dynamics Off")
Of course the # in front disables this, so still no wiser why Pressure-Opacity should show on a new install.

I'm pretty sure my dynamics aren't in alphabetical order as I have GPS installed, so that's that.
I'm not up to speed with code yet Rich, that's a Winter project for me. Thankyou for your response.

From memory, your 'extra' dynamics come first before the Gimp stock files.
