  • Better randomization of brushes upon initial placement of strokes

  • Added the ability to control how much brush width is varied from brush to brush.

Version 2.8.1 | June 25, 2007

  • Fixed a bug in combustion where scanlines of the processed image are not all rendered. This happens when there are thumbnails or filmstrips displayed. Video Gogh needs to see the same size image from frame-to-frame to properly track the brushes, so you'll still need to make sure you do not display thumbnails or filmstrips (because calculating a thumbnail between each full-sized frame causes a problem where the plugin can't properly track brushes from frame to frame, so the resulting animation with jump inappropriately). If the plugin sees that you have thumbnails or filmstrips displayed it will now warn you to turn those off.

Version 2.8 | May 25, 2006

  • Smaller speedups for Windows and Mac non-G4 users
  • Macintosh version now requires a G3 or G4 CPU and Mac OS 9.1 or later.
