Hej Stylus! line smoothing software

Post by D.T. Nethery » 10 Jul 2017, 20:53

Has anyone tried Hej Stylus! https://hejstylus.com/ with TVPaint ? Maybe it is redundant since TVPaint already has Line Smoothing function and Brush parameters can be tweaked , but someone told me about Hej Stylus as a "Mac version of Lazy Nezumi" , so I'm curious if anyone has tried it. It's not expensive (only $15.00) so I may just buy it to try it out .

However, if anyone has tried it and says: "No, it's a waste of time , doesn't work well with TVPaint" , then I'd appreciate the warning .

Just wanted to mention that I've been using the most current version of Hej Stylus! V 3.4, and I actually prefer it to the built-in line smoothing of TVPaint.

It has different presets, and you can also create your own presets, but I use just the built-in ones, in particular the Tighter Sketcher II and the Fast Natural. It's really helpful, as I use a regular non-graphic tablet, and it helps me draw more accurately. :)

Thank you for your input about Hej Stylus!

I will admit I had forgotten all about it in the two years since I posted this ,but now I think that will look into it again.

I recently had a student tell me she was no longer going to use TVPaint for clean-up on her thesis film because she found the line-smoothing in Clip Studio Paint EX worked so much better than TVPaint line smoothing . So now I want to try Hej Stylus again .
