New management layer

Hello everyone! 😀

Today I am publishing a screenshot of the new UI for managing layers!

I also made a change on the order of layers, now everything is organized as the most common graphics programs. (GIMP, PS, etc)

This feature has been requested by many people in the comments on BlenderNation and on Image Layers in Blender.

See you soon with many new features!

Best Regards,
Fabio Russo (ruesp83)

Image Layers in Blender

Hello everyone.
Today, we are here with a new news and new features for our Blender!
I started to develop features for images to create layers in Blender, as in PS and Gimp!!
A first implementation was done by KWK (Konrad Kleine) [1] for Gsoc2010.

In this post [2], I announced that I was working on the development of the layers. But then I was taken by the development of AMA (pause for the inclusion of Bmesh in the trunk) and all this came secondary.

The current status is:

Layers v0.1 beta1 new features and fixed bug 023\2012:
1. FIX: Fixed many bugs from the patch of KWK.
2. UPD: Improved UI.
3. ADD: With the creation of a new image now you can choose the background color: Transparent,
White, RGB.
4. ADD: Ability to duplicate a layer.
5. ADD: Blend Modes: Normal, Multiply, Screen, Overlay, Soft Light, Hard Light, Color Dodge,
Linear Dodge, Color Burn, Linear Burn, Average, Add, Subtract, Difference, Lighten,
Darken, Negation, Exclusion, Linear Light, Vivid Light, Pin Light, Hard Light.

See you soon with many new features!

Best Regards,
Fabio Russo (ruesp83)

New Image Layer in development

Hello everyone!!

I started to implement the code in Blender, which allows me to create layers for the images. (Image Layers)
I started from a base created by KWK [1], began this work for Gsoc2010.
I did not find much news! Also, the last commit in his trunck is August 16, 2010.

My current job is to insert the code created by him in the current build of Blender!
See you very soon with new features!

Best regards, ruesp83
