Dynamic Paint
Closed, ArchivedPublic


Dynamic Paint is a new Blender feature I've been developing.

It allows painting animated textures with other objects and particles. Basically it enables a whole new way for Blender objects to interact.

Currently Dynamic Paint is able to generate paint/color textures, wetmaps, and displacement maps. Output is saved as an image sequence, and thus can be used to create any kind of visual output.

This patch is tested by community and should be very stable. At least I haven't experienced any crashes with it.

Hopefully some of you can review this before 2.5x feature freeze is over, so I can fix possible errors in time. :)

Updated patch to version 1.18b.


* Fixed SVN compatibility.
* Fixed CMake compile errors.
* Fixed errors when blenderplayer enabled.

Doesn't work. r34842

The panel doesn't appear even if I enable DynamicPaint.

Posted a new version 1.18c that is again compatible with svn.

updated to r41542 under file named:

Hi, you really shouldn't use this old version anymore.

New development of Dynamic Paint is happening at the "soc-2011-carrot" branch: https://svn.blender.org/svnroot/bf-blender/branches/soc-2011-carrot/
The new version will hopefully be merged in trunk soon, and any save files made with this old version are incompatible with it.

I'm closing this patch item now to avoid further confusion.
