Special->Shift tool moving pixels to the lower-right

Post by termtvp » 09 Dec 2019, 21:25

Hello,

The shift brush has a quirk where upon clicking, the affected pixels move slightly to the lower right. This becomes very apparent when using max power and hardness. The attached screenshot was taken at 200% zoom.

I forgot to include my system specs:
Windows 10 & 8.
TvPaint 11.0.9 Pro 64-bit.
The bug has existed since TvPaint 10 if not earlier.

What do you call Shift brush? Are you referring to the nudge arrows in the Handy Custom Panel?

Strange. I never had a need for this one.

I never knew this mode was a thing haha
But isn't it the point of it, to shift pixels somewhere? What would you expect?

Well, I don't know what I would need to do with it in the style I work in and most of us work in our own ways not knowing what other people do to animate what they like to draw. It's a lot like the food we eat; we don't know and haven't even heard of many foods other people eat even on a daily diet. This is why I asked if the question is about "nudging" because that is the only shift I use especially the older I get. So how is this tool "Shift" used? Maybe it would be useful to me too.

@termtvp: I'm very curious to know how you managed to geet this result, because while the Shift mode is indeed supposed to shift the image, I don't have this result on my tests.
