View Full Version : Feedback Request: FingerPaint
08-28-2004, 06:58 AM
My program, FingerPaint, is near its release and I'm ready to start getting feedback from people. It's not a game but I do find it to be a valuable tool to help with creating textures for my games.

It's not a bad site at all, I thought it was pretty well done.
The only thing I like to see that you didn't have was the "About Us" page.
I just like to know who I'm buying from, I like to support indie software :cool:

Support JPG import and I'll consider buying it. I like what you've got there, but with no JPG support, it's not useful. Think "digital camera".
Or is JPG import disabled in the trial version?

Nice... it's like a low-end version of Zbrush ;)
I agree with David though- it really needs support for more than bitmaps. Also, it needs more than one level of undo.

I'm incorporating DevIL to support jpeg and other formats, after which I'll work on adding in multiple undos.
My next question is, how do you like the GUI, pricing, speed of the product?

FingerPaint now supports JPEG, BITMAP, PNG, and TIFF. Are there any others you'd want?

Sorry to take a bit to get back to this...
I liked the GUI, but the printer warning at the beginning started to get to me after the tenth or so time. Also, scrolling around a large canvas wasn't so fun (the scroll bar is right next to the windows task bar). It'd be nice to be able to press a key and scroll the canvas that way. Lastly, some tool tips (display the keys to press for each tool, if available) would be great. Those things aside, things were quite easy to use! You might want to try the demo of Zbrush sometime (unfortunatley not 2.0 yet) and see what things you could add from their ideas. I'm sure you won't match the program, but they have the whole 2D/3D drawing thing down pat.
The speed was good, but I'm running a pretty good computer, so... pricing was excellent, for the capabilities of the program! I'm sure you'll do well with it, when people try it for themselves.
