Drawing curved lines
It’s easy to do as an XCOMP, I actually have a polygon shape background
xcomp on my github:
However i’ve found that XCOMP are a real drain on performance, even when
implemented as a background object. One or two is fine but once you have
a dozen on screen (which easily happens when you really start using this
stuff for what it can do). This is why I opted out for going down the
XCOMP route for the bezier line.
I don’t know if this has improved in Studio 8 but the difference is very
obvious in Studio 6.
That all said, when did you ask? I would ask again. Things have changed
since David Lewis took over, they may be far more willing to entertain
the idea now. All the ingredients are already there, it’ll take an hour
or so for them to add in a few more native background controls. They are
not hard to do, assuming that its easier for them to add something like
this into the core then it was for me to create an XCOMP.
