    Artrage 4.0 Suggestions

    PPaint Metrics

    Some painting metrics for each AR painting file would be great
    Data could be accessible online with each Gallery upload
    (optional to uploader)

    Total file painting time to completion
    (not including periods exceeding 20 seconds inactivity)
    (or perhaps recording inactivity time ratio)
    Number of times .ptg file modified (open / closed)
    Number of times each different painting tool opened / used
    (listed in heirachy)
    Number of separate movements of each tool
    Number of undos
    Average time per session


    Assuming it would not take much code to make this happen
    (Not sure how data would survive file export though)

    This info would be of interest when studying how someone has painted their artwork.
    Aggregation might have some relevance to programmers also

    I think a "rubber cement" tool would compliment the watercolor tool

    just a thought

    AR3 not even release yet and you all already want AR4???..ha..ha. I think the Artragers deserve to take a break and enjoy the celebration of AR3 first before answering all AR3 technical questions.

    There're paintable selection areas. That's near enough isn't it?
    Wait, did I just give information about another unannounced feature?

    I would want the ability to enable/disable any meta information as i see fit. I really dont want to spend cpu cycles tracking how much time i spend on a painting

    Yes, an implicit thought at the time... (On / Off (=Default))

    Other metrics could include

    • the amount of real paint saved
    • the number of CPU cycles taken to apply and spread the digital paint
    • (feel free to add ideas to this list)


    Metrics could also be divided by the size of each canvas to give relativity across users

    Time lapse option

    A regular screen capture of art in progress, frequency predetermined by slider. Export as video option at the end of a painting. History could self delete after 2 days if not used. or similar
