I've been looking at ellipse code. Once I can get rhythms.itely off my
plate (which is waiting on the beatGrouping patch, one way or the other)
I'll add an ellipse in place of the circle.
I've been looking at a way to draw ellipses, but I've just seen you
have pushed a much better-looking implementation than mine; I hope the
docs will be recompiled soon so we can appreciate your nice ellipse in
the documentation!
Yes, I saw that, too. I even generalized it to allow different paddings in
X-
and Y-direction. However, what I don't understand about the ellipse code
in
ellipse-stencil is the factor 0.707 (supposedly from sqrt(2)/2) for
x-radius
and y-radius. If that factor comes from scaling the ellipse so that it
surrounds the stencil, then it only works for square stencils, for all
other
stencils it will be too large. As an extreme case consider a line stencil
("box" from (0 . -1) to (0 . 1) ). The ellipse will have half-axes of
length
1.414 and 0 (without padding), so in X-direction it will overshoot by far.
For a square, of course, the ellipse will degenerate to a circle, touching
all
corners, but for stencils with other rectangular extents, the ellipse will
not touch the corners of the bounding box any more.
Cheers,
Reinhold
