new editor concept

So far, the only buttons that actually do anything are the arrows that bring in and out the toolbars.

I've been going through several design iterations trying to figure out how to keep the UI minimal and keeping in accordance to LR aesthetics, while cramming in all the features we could really use. Forgive me if you have strong objections, this isn't something I have a lot of experience in. After a little bit of discussion with LV, I plan to prototype a sidebar-based UI in a few days. maybe later :|

In the meantime, guess what features the icons suggest Wink

6/11 EDIT:
Some fancier animations. Line types get rendered. Some tools now indicate if they're selected. Hotkeys work. Press help to see tool names and hotkeys.
I just got a lot of this done at an odd time of day so the code is pretty messy and hacky right now. It'll be a while until I clean it up and move on to implementing drawing functionality. For now, we can talk about the planned features, eg the multi-line tool is the fill tool since there is no concept of closed polygons in Line Rider.

Wow dude, that looks as clean as a baby's ass after being wiped with baby wipes!

My interpretations:
Spoiler:

UNDO! (you serious?! I LOVE YOU Very Happy) - Pencil, Line, Eraser, Move, Zoom, Play, Stop, Flag, Save/Load, Help - Advanced Tools

Advanced Tools:
Save/Load, Undo, Redo (REALLY? SO COOL!) - Select?, Pencil, Fill? (I'd use a bucket like in Paint if so, or is it related to line thickness?), Line, Curve? (what's this o.o ?), Stack???!!!, Eraser - Settings, Chat?! (WOW?!), Hide Advanced Settings

NO CLUE, Graph?, Move, Zoom - Extra Flag?, Flag, Play, Stop, Pause - Record, Edit Recording (YOU SERIOUS DUDE?!), Help, Music Sync (WOWOWOWOWOW!!!)

Music Sync:
????, Rewind Sped up, Skip Back (1 frame per 40 frames or something?) - Playbar - Skip Forward, Sped up, MUSIC (YEAH!)

I think we should show this to non-Line Rider people to see if the UI is intuitive.

Anyhow, it looks lovely and I wub you! this is gonna be amazing! Woehoewoehoe!

Do I see a button for layers? o.o and a brush tool next to the pencil?.. I'm stoked for the, what I'm assuming is, the select tool.

I'd love a recording tool. I think a tool to directly upload your track to youtube would be an awesome feature for new people too.

i would like to formally complain that the icons do not look enough like the original game. Mostly, I firmly believe the scroll tool should be a hand, like the original. However, other tools are too distant from the original. The eraser is not 3D. All of the tools are at a 45 degree angle as opposed to the 22.5 degrees we all know and love. The save icon isn't as detailed as the original. The tools in general don't contrast enough with the background. Etc.

Above all, THERE ISN'T EVEN A TRASHCAN! This is such an important tool to any trackmaker, and it's ridiculous that it would be left out bla bla bla basically I won't rest until this is reduced to nothing but Beta 2 6.7.

But for real, fill tool?

I feel like a pointer is far more in line with other programs, meaning it takes little-to-no time to figure out. Totally fine with the redesign. I like the hints of material design.
EDIT: Didn't see the move tool at the bottom. Eh. I can see your argument for the hand tool. I really don't care.

Perhaps the only thing I'm wondering is-- perhaps you haven't worked this in yet, but I can't see anything selected. It wouldn't look bad to allow the circles to fill outward into a box shape when selecting an icon. Then the icon stays shaded for the duration that it's selected.

I'm not good at describing things.

I like it. Good work.
