I’ve been using Blender for many years, but am brand new to Blender development. I do software development for a living and am somewhat familiar with Python and C/C++.
Sculpt mode supports drawing tablet pen pressure already and I want to add support for pen tilt and barrel rotation that is available in Wacom Intuos 4+ and newer Cintiq devices. I understand that the underlying driver code is already there in Blender (see this), so I’m hoping it’s a simple matter of hooking it up, following the way pressure is implemented. I was thinking of adding another couple of buttons for tilt and rotation everywhere the pressure button is found (brush radius, strength, autosmooth, spacing, jitter). Eventually, it would be awesome to have pen rotation control brush rotation, but I need to start small.
Is anyone familiar with this area of the code who can give me some pointers or advice, or even join forces with me?
Is this something that is already planned? Do others want this feature? Any ideas for a better UI implementation?
