introduced a new bug:
spacing of the brush changes radically when scaling the brush, doesn't anymore work when the brush is scaled down beyond some ratio...it grows like it would be absolute distances or something, I don't see this quite clearly. The brush should behave consistently when scaled up/down...
In the uploaded file below, please test the 'seam' brush. the file itself should show the issue quite clearly, also attaching 2 screenshots.
VS old bug(first step wrong):
as a little side - note, I don't know why blender's rake option doesn't have an 'roll' option that would enable applying various alphas in much better way. see it here:
blender's rake actually always applies the center of the image. Roll means that the seamless alpha (should be seamless for this) is offset each brush step, and thus the brush-center of the image is taken from a different y-coordinate of the image. Probably also some image deform could be applied, but definitely just taking a different center/offseting each step would be a big + by now.
