(Not) Knobs 5

For parameters with a low resolution, it might be of advantage to show the steps, so 2 variations on that.
Showing on overlay like in the 2nd row could encourage the user to increase the distance to have more precision (it took a while from my first encounter with radial knobs to taking advantage of this).
I should have mentioned earlier that this is all SVG done with Inkscape. That means the graphics can be adapated to various sizes easily or even be rendered in realtime. I tried to keep things simple because of this. But now it’s time for a little experiment, trying to add more ‘realism’ . Many layers, transparency and blur also mean that this is rather not suitable for realtime rendering. Caching might do the trick, though 🙂
Finally 2 variations on an overlay while dragging on the distance-based widget. The simple version can lead to nasty aliasing problems, apparently
