Paul, many thanks for your effort to incorporate LazyBrush into your pipeline! Your feedback is extremely important for us as our aim is to produce really useful tool. We'll try to do our best to fix all mentioned issues, however, this will definitely take some time. Let me slightly introduce our team and future plans.
LazyBrush team currently consists of 3 developers: Ondrej Jamriska, Ofer Kapota, and me (Daniel Sykora). I'm the author of the LazyBrush algorithm, Ondrej is the author of its efficient implementation, and Ofer helps us with TVPaint integration as besides coding he also has great experience with TVPaint as an artist, actually he initiated the idea to produce TVPaint plugin of LazyBrush algorithm.
Our current plans are to improve TVPaint plug-in according to needs of first users and also to release stand-alone version as well as Photoshop plug-in with custom tailored user interface for interactive coloring (i.e., without "Paint" button, as in this video: http://youtu.be/XTUefe5HGKU
), this variant will be also available as a different interaction mode in TVPaint plugin. We also plan to release another plug-in called LazySnap, which enables deformable image registration suitable for transferring LazyBrush's scribbles to next animation frames: http://youtu.be/fRmo6svs-84
. As Fabrice said we'll try to do our best to attract more customers so that we can invest more into these future plans.
