Re: How to combine translate() and rotate() into matrix()

Translation can be expressed as a matrix. Of course it can. Apply this matrix to point [1; 1; 1] (this represents a point 1,1 in 2d the last element is just a place holder. The first two numbers are the x and y coordinates) and you will get the answer [2; 2; 1]. The matrix should be [1, 0, 1; 0, 1, ...

Re: Matrix transformation

Hi, I might be able to answer your question but I am not sure if I understand the question right. You have a 100 by 100 rectangle with its lower left corner at 100, 100? Then you rotated this entire rectangle by 33 degrees? Now what is the second SVG code representing? I am not familiar with that pa...

Re: Mathematical formulae

Hi Arjan,

Good to hear that it is working. If you are new to LaTex, I would recommend this online equation editor: http://www.codecogs.com/latex/eqneditor.php
You can type out symbols and equations by clicking the pictures and it will generate the corresponding LateX code for you.

Regards

Re: Mathematical formulae

What do you mean? If you read the link I sent you, people are talking about the exact same error as you are mentioning. They also talk of the fixes. Are you able to try similar things yourself and see if you also get it working?

Try this as suggested on this post: https://bitbucket.org/pv/textext/issue/55/textext-using-inkscape048 1.

I just tried it on my linux and it worked like a charm. Now, I dont know about windows; I havent used a windows machine in a while. However comparing each linux step with windows, this is what I would suggest as means to troubleshoot. Look at this page: http://pav.iki.fi/software/textext/index.html ...

Hi,
I didnt play with this much, but this is what I have. I feel that with little bit of further modifications, it can look pretty good.
Thanks

Re: How to create tree roots?

Hi Brynn, Thank you for your response. I did about creating trees using Random tree. It was here http://penguinpetes.com/b2evo/index.php?p=358 I played with it and it is kind of frustrating. Not frustrating as such it works as it is supposed to but I had different expectation of how it would smooth ...

How to create tree roots?

Hi, I am looking to create tree roots. Just roots. not trunk. For now, I am just using the pencil tool with triangle in to get one root and just drawing it over and over again as can be seen in the attached svg. But this method doesnt seem like the way to go. If there is anything else that I can do ...

Re: Help with creating multiple copies

I see. Thanks.
I am starting to realize what my problem is. I am still in the MS-Paint type of mindset. Create outline, fill color etc. I think I need to get a better idea of inkscape's philosophy of doing things. Especially I need to master what a path is and how it works exactly.
That I will do.

Re: Help with creating multiple copies

Hi, I dont know if I quite understand. I see that you have a black outline with no fill set and a yellow will with no outline set. This makes up one bird. I didnt really understand what next. I can duplicate it with ctrl D or alt D, then what should I do? I kind of got lost in the terminology. Sorry...

Re: Help with creating multiple copies

Hi, That is pretty cool. However, I have one question. At one point, the overlap is cyclic. How would this work in that case? See the attached pic. Your inkscape replica looks pretty cool. I wish I could take a look at it to see how the curves/eye/beak are created. I am pretty new at using inkscape ...

Help with creating multiple copies

Hi, I am looking to make something that looks like the attached image. What I am thinking is that I would create one single bird outline and then just duplicate and rotate etc to get additional copies. Now, if you look at the image, the lower left bird has its wingtip over another bird while one oth...

Creating line art that looks realistic (like on paper)

Hi, I do some artwork in inkscape and before using inkscape, I have been doing it just on paper with a pencil. However, I needed to replicate my art and initially I decided to just scan the work but that turned out to be quite tedious due to the size of the sheets I was using etc. So, I decided to g...
