Episode 183: Dynamics!

Download the Video! (20:20 40.5MB)
In the last episode was a short segment about the brush dynamics in Ramon Miranda’s GIMP Paint Studio. I wanted to read up a bit about this, but the GIMP documentation hasn’t held step with the development here.

So this video shows my exploration of the brush dynamics control. The possibilities are limitless, it seems.

The show starts with another GIMP theme by samj and a big misunderstanding. You can find everything about it at Gimp Chat.
