Re: Interpolation Problem

But anyway, probably the same object copied with different stroke widths This is what i did, but its a lot of unintuitive math and the dashes behave weirdly in a non functional way, so no dotted decorational lines. We'll have to wait for Jabier's Dashes LPE for that.... :( Wasnt there supposed to b...

Despite what his channel appears, Nicks knowledge is not as great as his fanbase thinks. In fact his workflow is quite often a bit amateurish. Keep that in mind when learning from his videos.

Re: filters in progress

This is all over my head, but when you make a duplicate of the diagonal stripes gradient, flip it and set the mode to 'Difference', then apply a Blur and some sort of Levels/Curves, you will get dots, right.

Re: filters in progress

Is it possible to use this template with other patterns ?

It seems to me, the stripes are made of a gradient.

What about the classic halftone dot pattern ?

Its the effect im looking for, however, with the Alternate Option i cant control the width of the gaps between the dots anymore.....


EDIT:
On a second thought, that can be remedied with a No-Fill object to control the size of the bounding box.

Cool !

Diagonal Halftone

Im playing around with halftones. Making a simple halftone by tracing a gradient is easy, but i want the halftone at an angle. In this case 45°. In theory that requires a Shift Y of 50% per Column, however it compromises the Trace and half of my halftone descends into nothingness. Any ideas how to f...

Re: Can Inksape deal with more than 10,000 objects?

Sidebar: Inkscape works very differently from Illustrator and other vector editors... it is actually natively writing an SVG text file which creates limitations that the proprietary formats used in Ai (and others) won't have. Im curious to understand the difference between what AI and svg does. Do ...

Re: Units

When you said "Stroke width tab" I guess you mean Object menu > Fill and Stroke > Stroke Style tab. That's where you can find the width setting. The part that's confusing, is that if nothing is selected, those options and fields are grayed out. Yes, that what i mean. The units may be gray...

Re: Can you use the Spray Tool to stamp single objects ?

I guess the purpose of the Spray Tool is to randomly create objects, although it would have been a nice "joy ride" to use it as a stamp.

The idea of doing pixel art with a grid of cloned blocks isnt too bad.
Will give that a try.
