RWIE Can I disable antialiasing?

in line tool for example

Hi Vlasta, I hope you are doing well and staying healthy. I am doing some pixel-level work in RWIE. I'd like the Line Tool to make crisp lines without the antialiasing "shadows." Is it possible to disable antialiasing?

Yeah, had the same problem. But you can do that on RWCE!

If you want to make pixel art on a cursor, then I'd recommend changing the canvas size to 24-bit (truecolor) it doesn't support antialiasing. Don't worry if it appears on the line design, it wont display on the cursor.

Thanks for the suggestion -- Clever idea! I'm actually doing icons rather than cursors, but I think 24 bit should still work fine.

I see you are a user from 2011. That's impressive! Most of the veteran users left this website. sadly

Maybe you could make a set?

Yea, I also still need to make my avatar -- LOL. I do have several miscellaneous icons that might be worth sharing.... I dunno.

I really think they're worth sharing. Almost a decade and you haven't uploaded anything yet.

Yea, okay. Fair enough. I'm guessing that I start with "Create new icon library" yes? Probably save them as an .ICL and then figure out how to get them on the rw site?

Yep, but maybe you should draw an icon. Or make a Unicorn3D model.

I thought I had made a "Build your own" set... Just had to find it. It's not great...

Also though I have several hand-made (by me) individual icons, that I'll post. I'm a little embarrassed that I haven't used RWIE as much as you might think. Over the years I've mostly used DrawPlus. It's a nice vector tool, but is abandonware now. I've gone all "gung ho" with RWIE a few times, but I get overwhelmed and frustrated and go back to the one I already know. So I've done prbably hundreds of different icons over the years, but most were never refined at the "pixel level" they are just hi rez vector images that got shrunk. In the last year or so, I've been going in and editing the low rez components. I'll share those ones. THere are a dozen or so.

Woah, woah, woah. I never thought you made an Icon Assembler in the past. It's very nice! I wonder how you made one.

Don't feel embarassed, everyone tries their best!

Just found this forum because I was bored. LOL!

Good luck making your own Icon as an Avatar Image!

btw, nice icon assembler!

kunkel321

I didn't actually make the assembler... Just the image components, which I sent to Vlasta and he made the assembler.

I recall seeing directions that VLasta posted somewhere for how to make yourself an avatar using RW Paint.

Sheesh... I don't think you can upload a set. You have to upload individual icons. Then you can combine them when you have enough. Also, I don't know if they have to be approved by the moderator (Vlasta?) before you can combine them into a set. I uploaded 5 icons that I've worked on recently. THey appear in the "Junk yard" behind about 34 hundred other icons that -- I guess -- are awaiting approval.

Vlazteron

Just because they're on the junkyard doesn't mean they're waiting for approval. All cursor that aren't included on a set, will be on the junkyard.

To make a set, you need at least 3 icons. At they must be good quality, or they won't appear, because they need to follow the guidelines.

I hope this helped.

The icons you uploaded are also nice. I think they can fit on a set. Just make a good description and give them a good name OK? So they'll appear on the frontpage, hope they dont need a review in order to appear to the frontpage. I would rate 5 stars, on your set.

kunkel321

Ah yes -- I see.
Okay, I combined them into "School Psychy" icon set. LOL.

Vlazteron

Just gave 5 stars to your set. I love it, superb. :-)

Hey thanks!

This actually looks more like a chat. LOL!

I found the answer to the original question... When working on a raster layer, on the same toolbar as the line tool and pencil button are two buttons near the right side: The diagonal line = "Smoothing" and antialiasing is used. If you choose the diagonal line with three little dots, it = "No smoothing." This turns off antialiasing and makes jagged lines. These commands work with Pencil and Line, but not with Brush.

Just forgot that! Anyways, I thought you were only able to do that on RW Paint.

I think RWIE might contain all of functionality of the Paint program.
