    [EDITOR] Terrain painting with pen pressure?

    Hello,

    Please add the support for pen pressure for landscape painting for both intensity and target value. Because "target value" feature does a wonderful job at painting the landscape if used with a pen.

    Thanks.

    It does work with wacom, thought I gotta say that it does not feel comfortable for some reason.

      Does the value change based on pen pressure as well?

        Argh, sorry, I've sort of misinformed you. I remember it used to work when painting foliage, so I assumed it also worked with layers and sculpting. I just checked and it is false.

          It's okay no problem.
          [MENTION=404]DanielW[/MENTION], Is this something that can be taken care of?
          Being able to paint with pen+pressure and taking advantage of the whole target value range eliminates the soft blendings and lets us fully use the height blending the way it's meant to be used.

            Yeah, my cheap $50 wacom's works when sculpting and painting, only because it's simulating the mouse, so pen pressure is a no-go :\

            I have macros on my pen, maybe there is a way to set it up to control the strength?

              Hi guys, we did have Wacom pen pressure support for landscape painting in UE3 but I believe in the transition to UE4 the necessary engine support was not brought along. I'll look into it some more.

                    The landscape, foliage and mesh paint tool code still supports a pressure value, and in the case of foliage it looks like it's recently been reconnected for VR controllers when the editor is in VR mode, but unfortunately the UE4 input system does not currently support getting pen/tablet pressure data.

                    We have a ticket UE-16596 to add this support, but it is marked as backlogged and so it doesn't look likely that we will be able to allocate resources to this any time soon.

                            Votes definitely mean something, it quantifies how important it is to the community relative to other stuff.

                              Well that used to be the general idea behind voting but people (including myself) stopped voting after while for some reason. i.e: https://issues.unrealengine.com/issue/UE-35097
