Work in progress: basic animations with SpeedyPainter

Simple test of a new ‘work in progress’ feature I’m planning to add on SpeedyPainter: the possibility to create simple frame-by-frame animations. The feature is still in its early stages, quite experimental for now, I hope to provide more updates soon 🙂

Improved image filtering – SpeedyPainter v3.4.5

SpeedyPainter v3.4.5 uses a better algorithm for alpha blending. This new solution allows to avoid image artifacts with image filtering, allowing to reduce the image graininess when zooming in and out from the image original size.

The new improved mirror tool allows to create images like the one below, by selecting a number of 2 repetitions, and deselecting the ‘mirroring’ flag.

In this version, during replay, the camera smoothly pans and zooms across the canvas in order to focus on those areas currently being painted.

Study of the wonderful statue “Ratto di Proserpina” (the rape of Proserpina) of the great master sculptor Gian Lorenzo Bernini (1598–1680). This sculptor was such a genius.
