Matias Mendiola (mendio) added a comment to T80128: GPencil. Boundary strokes are visible in renders.

yes, it makes sense to me to hide the boundary lines in the rendered shading mode. It will also help to easily detect those lines when changing modes.

Matias Mendiola (mendio) added a comment to D8515: T79683: Dim GPencil points created by modifiers.

I will argue that this will clutter the view for anything that is really high density.
I fail to see the real use case of seeing the individual points when you can still see the curve itself.
The other curve types and edge only meshes don't show intermediate points and I don't like adding more discrepancy between tools inside blender.

IMO these decisions should not be the concerting of only the GPencil team since it affects the UX as a whole.

For Meshes it's Ok to not show the added points because they have faces and is clear what is going on, but IMO in the case of curves/strokes using a dimmed points is very helpful for better understanding.

@Matias Mendiola (mendio) I have a doubt... Not sure the title Edges is the best, maybe would be Points. For example, now, when draw a line with 2 points, the title is 2 Edges.

Matias Mendiola (mendio) added a comment to D7608: Corner styles for annotation line tool.

About line overlapping:

  • In the closed arrow I can solve it with some low modifications, no problem. How the code works, the arrow is a separated stroke and what you "move" is the end point of the line stroke, the arrow only adapts to that point, that means if we pull the arrow stroke outsides (arrow direction) it will be offset as you can see in the triangle shape, no overlap but not precise (not right under the mouse), the other solution is compressing the line but it will be more of a task and change too much the actual code, I'm not sure if it would be worth it. What are your opinions about this?
May 4 2020, 5:23 PM
Matias Mendiola (mendio) added a comment to D7608: Corner styles for annotation line tool.

@Matias Mendiola (mendio) I agree...only doubts about circle (or rounded) shape...this needs a lot of points and I think it don't worth enough to increase internal data structures.

Yes, the stroke use a local UV coords. The good would be to have a world UV, but the problem is how calculate it. Actually, the UV is calculated using a 2D projection and the first segment of the stroke is what defines the orientation...if we could find a way to always use the same orientation, this would be great not only for this modifier, but for any stroke with Fill, but I was unable to figure out how get this fixed orientation, maybe someone has any idea.

I think we just need to decide on a common term for the rings (among other things) around the brush.
I generally refer to it as the brush cursor but others apparently use brush tip, brush contours, just "brush" or other terms.
There needs to be consistent terminology in all these modes, otherwise it becomes too messy.
