Meeting Notes

  • User feedback form:
    • Got initial responses from 20 people.
    • Apart from a few small tweaks, the form seems to be good and the questions are understood well.
    • Next steps: share the form with a wider audience. Ideas for possible plattforms are:
      • Blender.chat, Blender Nation, Twitter, Blender Today (in January when Pablo Vazquez is back)
  • Update from SPA:
  • We have an idea on how to develop GP 3.0 in master: Developer Discussion: New Grease Pencil Data Structure Proposal - #19 by filedescriptor
  • Samuel: Is in touch with El Guirri Studio to work on a storypencil addon (which would be open source from the start), should begin work on it soon.

Next Meeting


Hi, @filedescriptor ,
sorry for using this odd way to put my question, but blender’s chatroom doesn’t let me sign in, so here’s my question:
When i open blender 2D and start drawing, i only see my stroke after i stopped the movement. Is there some setting i have to change in order to have a brush/ink behaviour like the annotation tool (instant visibility), or is that a known issue?

Issues like these should be reported on the bug tracker. In Blender, you can click the “Help > Report a Bug” button and then fill out the form (you also need to sign in with your Blender ID).
I think I’ve seen similar issues reported for mac os, so this might already be worked on.

This is what happens currently when i try to report a bug:
It tells me that the username is already used by someone else and completing registration is not possible. I should mention that i have a blender id and reported bugs in the past successfully. Nevermind. I already decided to make a blender break until 4.0.
