thx brok for the report.
Ive forgotten many people use bigsize knob :hihi:
probably that may easily cause crash.

man, you're fast, thanks! :)
will check if it works now ...

another 3 questions (me again ;) ):
- can you maybe implement the options one has for "sphere" into bezier shape?

- also, the shadow of all shopes, aswell as the edge parameter would be very poweful when also automating (morphing between 2 states, just like all the above parameters)) could be applied ... cool for buttons, that, when pressed, have no shadow and edge, and when unpressed, have a shadow and edge ...

- can you maybe implement a "solo" button for the selected layer?
when having a lot of layers, but you quickly want to check out one layer isolated, it's a pita to make all the others invisible ... instead a solo button for the currently selected layer would requere just one click ...
understand what i mean?

Many thanx for this great tool ;)

I found a little bug:

if you use a Image layer with transparency "Opaque", the next time you reload the project the transparency is switched back to "use 1st pix color".

BTW:

Made with your wunderful tool:

hey, nice!

what is it going to be when it's ready? a bandpass filter?
btw, i'd diffuse the inside silver specular shape a tiny bit (hope you don't mind me saying this) ...
did you do the whole gui with knobman, or just the knobs?

damned, i just love knobman ... :)

thanks a lot. :D
Yes, it is a bandpass filter, made with max/msp.
i did the frontpanel in photoshop.
The knobs, the Vu-meter on the right and the Freq-displays are made with knobman ;)

wow, your knobs all look excellent. If I might ask a favor: would people be willing to post some knobman files (*.knob) so that I can learn from them?
I can make some decent 2d stuff, but I start to lose the picture for photorealistic stuff. Thanks.

More awesome updates, I think diffuse on the new shape tool would be very useful also drawing the shape with tools like rectangle and eclipse (circle) would be good too. When trying to draw a circle with beziers it doesn't make a perfect circle.

The new shape tool in action:

Its out of this world :!: :P
