Verve custom brushes

Sadly for me at least I am unable to use custom brushes created in Verve. I realize this is a experimental feature. Unfortunately when I open and use saved custom brushes and try to save a PNG from a project I created with them I get the dreaded windows exception error.

Taron I hope you will consider making the custom brushes work a priority in future updates. In my opinion its the most powerful feature the program could have.

Right now it is to frustrating to work on a project for hours only to see the program crash on saving.

Here is a image I created not directly with a custom brush but I painted with the brush and turned it into a custom canvas texture. I was trying to create a brush effect like powder dropped on the canvas.

I think you would agree you can not make a effect like this with the standard Verve brushes.

Re: Verve custom brushes

What crash? How... that's completely strange to me. The only experimental thing about image brushes is the GUI and the limited options. Saving should never be a problem, let alone crash!?!? If there was trouble, and I will check, this should be an easy fix!
So, never assume that I would be fine with a crash for any reason! Please, explain to me exactly the steps you make to run into a crash like that! :shock:
Looks great, by the way! :ob

Re: Verve custom brushes

Hi Taron
First you are a genius. Thanks for fixing this. I am in Mexico so I am up all night with this problem. That's how important it is for me. I downloaded the new version I did a test worked great. I then saved a project file with my favorite settings and tried to save a png from the project file using the custom brushes crashed again!

Then I went back to the new version I downloaded and did another test it worked again!

So the problem seems to be saving a png from a project file I had saved. It would be great if I could save a png from a project file, but at least it works in the default download version.

I saw your answer from another post I made about this problem where you mentioned fixing something else should I download it again?

Re: Verve custom brushes

Yeah, not sure when you downloaded it, but it's a good idea to download it again and test! I'll also test what you've said, of course, but I'd be a little surprised, if the latest version still did such a crash.

Re: Verve custom brushes

Yeah, no such troubles here, but remember that saving PNG of larger image size will take a while. If it looks like Verve is hanging, just wait unless an error message came up. I still need to figure out how I can make a progress bar during PNG saving procedures. :shrug:
...but, yeah, no crash here after loading a project and saving a png of it.

Re: Verve custom brushes

It was not hanging, the black box saying saving png did not show up at all on saving, just the windows error. I will download it again though. Thanks again! :rock:

Hi Taron
I downloaded Verve again and now it seems to be able to save a png from a project file. You must have fixed something else! :bounce:

Re: Verve custom brushes

Yeah, I believe, I have found the problem and solved it. It's actually a leftover from prior changes, which I have missed. :oops:
Thanks for catching it! :ob :beer:
