Binary / Legacy Pen's Opacity
« on: February 20, 2009, 01:11:27 AM »
Is it me or does anyone else find the opacity settings of this tool not work like they're supposed to? :s
the opacity slider just makes the colour lighter instead of making it transparent.

try drawing a couple of lines overlapping each other at around 20 opacity. it doesnt happen :c

Yes unfortunately the brush doesn't work like PS or Opencanvas, I've requested a brush like the one in PS but for now SAI V1 won't have any new brushes.

Yeah I can't figure out either, plus it's limitation to just 100px.

Probably because the binary pen is just that, it's 1bit color, unlike 32bit color which is what all the other brushes are, it's all on or all off, so there can be no transparency.  It has no ability to store alpha information which is as it should be.

The binary pen literally SETS the RGBA values of the pixels to the pen's color and opacity setting. Try using the opacity setting on a new layer over an existing drawing, and you'll see that it works as intended.
