I’ve started a small project, aiming at converting MyPaints .ora files
into an .html presentation. For this task, I used python to
read, compose the .ora files and generate a reveal.js presentation.
A first result can be seen here:
Now, I was wondering if maybe this could be converted or recreated into a proper MyPaint feature
oder Add-On? The basic idea is to allow exporting layers into a “presentation format”.
I’m may interested in writing a plugin on my own, but I can’t foresee how difficult it is
to write small GUI elements and add them to MyPaint.
I would love to get feedback on the idea, any kind of hints or suggestions!
There is some feature I would like to implement for my project, but I don’t know how:
Is there some way to get “real-time” access to MyPaints current layers?
I would love to be able to “paint” on the slides during the presentation.
(Optionally with having a proper MyPaint window on a second screen
and only the content of the active frame being visible for the audience.)
I’m using MyPaint in a rather unusual way, primarily for mathematics.
Making notes and creating nice sheets to explain maths in a fun way works great for me.
