Opacity

Anyone know what the opacity option under the mixing sliders does? Doesn't seem to make any difference if it's on or off.

Opacity is for tablet users. :)
If you do own a tablet and check the box, the amount of pressure you use with effect how visible your stroke is. ^^



Not SAI, but a good example of opacity levels! :)

I dont know how it is translated with the eng distro here but I have what I think is what your looking at translated as Water content Basicly it makes the brush wetter. Affects how it interacts with other colors as well as it's apparent transparency as mentioned above. Before it is asked color retreat seems to affect how much it draggs the underlying color around.
Example shown is moused.

Here brush flow is translated to density which is what Bokuza showed, then there's another option under the blenders called "opacity" which I didn't know what it was for.

Madkoifish your translation seems to have translated the blender slidders a little less literal and more in terms, I see what opacity does now, cheers!

It takes that the blender slidders a little less literal and more in terms then it could be possibly make opacity.

Well, this is a very good question, i kinda still don't get what opacity does, ticking it on and off didn't show any diffrence. Is it in any way relative to the blending, delution and persistence sliders? Or just general brush behavior? If any1 has figured it out and willing to do some explaining for me, i would be very thankful :)

In SAI's help file it says:

Keep Opacity
On drawing from already drawn part to not drawn part, this try to preserve drawing opacity is not too thinned.

I believe it mixes either with transparency or with color when you're blending color with a non painted area but it's hard to understand.
