Hey guys,

over the past three months I have been developing a new collaborative painting/art program entitled UxPaint.

I am thinking of releasing an alpha version very soon, to see whether this type of program would be useful to artists and artistic hobbyists.

I'm posting here to request your opinion / input on this type of program, I will attach some screenshots too.

Current features:
 
  • Collaborative, multi user, many can work on a drawing at the same time
  • Compatible with drawing tablets
  • Understands alpha / opacity
  • Three different brushes (Round, Natural, Soft)
  • Includes both digital brush and natural brush
  • Grid to help draw caricatures
  • Layer support
  • Perfect synchronization, all users will see the same thing on the screen

Current tools:

  • Paintbrush
  • Pencil
  • Eraser
  • Line
  • Floodfill / Paint bucket
  • Airbrush
  • Magnifier
  • Color sampler
  • Smudge
  • Rectangular select
  • Move selection
  • Move selected pixels

Screenshots









Also, check out the gallery at http://uxpaint.com/gallery (but please don't try to register, I've disabled the register server for now)





Program is 99% Java, 1% C++

Thanks for reading! Smiley

Hi

It seems promising. Why do you need some C++ code for this?

Hi gouessej,

It interfaces with the native tablet driver. I require C++ to interface with the tablet driver to read pressure, angle, orientation, etc from the pen.

Did you use JInput ? Other wise what are the supported systems ?

Wrote my own API, based on Wintab, so right now only Windows is supported.

In future, if there is enough interest in this project, I'll also write one to interface with XInput (Linux) and Cocoa (Apple), it shouldn't be hard anyway, but I don't have a Linux / Mac system to compile on right now.

However, although the tablet won't be recognized on Linux and Mac right now, the program still functions fine.

I really really like the idea and progress so far.

random suggestion: Perhaps somewhere let the others know which "tool" each user has selected(is using),

Thanks. You can see what tool a user is using when they apply it to the canvas.

Thanks for the color link too, I will check it out.

Update:

Added square brush, and switched the entire rendering system to software instead of Java2D.
