Paint selection (test)

Posted a request for this a few days ago, and then realised that, it’s not a good idea to modify selection mask. I make this plugin to use a paint layer for selection. It works (though not perfectly).
I still want krita implement this as a default tool.

Caution

This plugin run slowly and would crash krita when paint with big canvas(like 4000x4000 at 300ppi). Don’t press too quickly with big canvas.

Usage

Default shortcut is ‘A’.
Press shortcut, a temporary layer is added, do normal paintings on it, press again, change paintings to selection.
The paint selection layer is a normal paint layer, you can do any thing with it.

Settings is under Tools > Scripts > Paint selection settings.
To change shortcut, open config window, find ‘paint selection’.

Demo

Download
download page
I don’t use git now, it is a web storage page. Use menu > Tools > Scripts > import plugin from file, choose file downloaded, then restart.
