dynamic updating of blend
I've just downloaded the new version of gimp 2.8 and have started fiddling around trying to get myself accustomed. I've been having a problem modifying a blend after it has been rendered.

Somehow I thought I remembered that Gimp 2.6 allowed you to dynamically update the blend after it had been rendered the first time by changing settings like opacity, color, etc...
It seems that the only way to change the rendered blend is to change the settings and redo the blend.

Am I just dreaming that this should be a dynamic function? Is there a bug I'm not aware of?Am I missing something in the process?

thanks,

chardho

RE: dynamic updating of blend
No, in the general case you can't change the blend using the blend design tools on it once iyt has been applied (unless it's on its own layer, or you have a selection on it).

However, you can apply color/level processing on the blend. See there for an example:

In Inkscape you can change the blend later, but Inkscape is for vector graphics.

RE: dynamic updating of blend
Ofnuts,

Thanks for the quick reply. It's a pity as I'v become accustomed to that functionality in CS5 but will soon be losing access to the program. Was hoping that it was similar in the new version of gimp.

Much appreciated...
