I’m loving the software so far, I’ve run into a weird issue. Since I’m using a surface book 2 with an N-trig pen I’ve removed the qt.conf file from the animation paper folder in order to fix the pressure sensitivity issue. However when I do that, then lazy nezumi stops working, where instead of dragging the line from the string being pulled, it’s right under the pen tip, as if it wasn’t turned on.
If I draw with the mouse then Lazy Nezumi works just fine and if I add back in the qt.conf then pen smoothing works as expected.
I’ve tried adding two images, the first one is how the smoothing *should* be, and the second one is what is happening.
I’m using a surface book 2, 13 inch, with 16 gb. ram and i7-8650U and windows 11.February 27, 2023 at 8:43 am #5465NielsKeymaster
First of all, my system says your message was from weeks ago (feb 2nd) – but for some reason it only just now turned up for my approval. I have no idea why this happened – I’m very sorry if you had to wait this long.
But about your issue: This qt.conf thing is a hack. On some computers (yours apparently), you need to force AP to use Windows Ink for it to work with pressure sensitivity. Normally it just works without doing this.
I have heard that people do generally not like or prefer Windows Ink, because it introduces all kinds of problems. Maybe this is one of them – I don’t know.
Anyway, we aim to make AP work out of the gate with as many systems as possible, so hopefully we will at some point fairly soon be able to drop the qt.conf hack and just make it work normally – and then there’s hope for Lazy Nezumi working on your system like it does for most people already.
Why I am writing like this is because I don’t want to discourage other people reading this from using Lazy Nezumi if they want to. Because normally there’s no problem using it. However I know that I am not offering you, Andreas, much help here. I just don’t know how I can help you with this problem right now, I’m afraid. 🙁
I can tell you, though, that AP does have a clever and subtle stabilising function working already. Some people don’t even recognise it, but it actually makes a great difference for people drawing free hand inside AP (as you do). However, it is not too intrusive, which is one of the great things about it. It feels natural, while still smoothing out unintentional bumps and noise in your strokes. This feature is just always on and working – and it has no user accessible settings.
Long answer, not much use – I’m sorry. 😉

No worries, I have actually wondered if there were some kind of smoothing/interpolation already, since it does feel easier to draw smoothly compared to PAP4.
Also I agree that windows Ink is a headache, literally every time I have an issue it ties back to windows ink (and to some extent N-Trig… -_-)
Hopefully it’ll get sorted by a windows update or something, or maybe you guys find a solution in a newer build, or someone else finds a new workaround.
Either way I agree with your sentiment that people really shouldn’t be scared off of trying Lazy Nezumi with Animation Paper.
If I find some weird workaround I’ll post it. Either way thank you so much for taking the time to reply It’s really wonderfully kind of you 🙂
ps: also don’t worry about the delayed response time, I wasn’t even sure if it had been sent properly, it gave me an error message at the end 😛
