Direction controller with rotating canvas

Postby zsolt » 12 Nov 2016, 17:44


this is my first post as I'm just getting into Black Ink.
I started with experimenting with creating my own brushes and I came across an issue. When using the Direction (0..1) controller on the Rotation parameter, the brush's behaviour will change when rotating the canvas.
In other words, if the brush is painting vertical lines (x=low, y=high) when at 0°, it will paint horizontal lines (x=low, y=high) when the canvas is rotated 90°.
This pretty much renders rotating the canvas useless in these situations. Am I missing something? Is there a setting I can use to counteract this behaviour?
Otherwise, I'm enjoying this great product and am looking forward to updates, they seem very promising (blur etc.)

Thank you in advance.

You're right. Unfortunatly this problem will only be fixed in the next release.
