  1. This looks pretty cool! Seems like something that could be a really interesting open source project. Just something to consider.
  2. I am intrigued by this software, but why is there so little information out there about it? I know it is pretty new, but if it was really good I would expect to see more content on you tube and other places about it.
  3. This can be a useful technique, but it is very different from how freeform gradients work in illustrator. The colors at each point do not interact with each other in the same way as a freeform gradient. I would not say this technique offers "more control" because it isn't directly comparable. As such, I think a real freeform gradient tool would be a very nice feature to add, but I'm not sure I would call it must have.
  4. Thanks for the suggestion. I guess this setting has some relevance, but I'm not sure it will help me. I'd rather not have the brush shared between all tools. Mostly I want to be able to determine which brush is currently used by the currently active tool. I guess this option would make it a little easier to keep track, but at the cost of not being able to have a different brush setup for each tool.
  5. AD seems to have some potential to be a nice tool for digital painting, but some bugs and missing features kind of ruin it for me. First thing that comes to mind is this bug... If anyone has any tips for dealing with this, I'd be glad to hear them.
  6. I'm using AD on Windows. Maybe you are using a different version, but for me it does switch to the smear tool when I select any of those brushes.
  7. Actually it does automatically select to the tool in AD. But there is no way to adjust that behavior from inside AD, apparently.
  8. No it doesn't show up in AD, even in that case.. That's a real bummer. This feature really needs to be added to AD, especially since the brushes can be used in both applications.
  9. Thanks, but I know all that. What I would like to do is extract the existing texture so I can make changes to it.
  10. In AD, I'm noticing some of my imported brushes have an icon on the right side indicating the paint brush or the smear brush. And when that brush is selected it will force the corresponding tool. Brushes without that icon can be used according to which tool is previously selected. How does this work? I could find no mention of it in the documentation. How do you create brushes that pre-select the tool, and is there a way to change existing brushes to not have this behavior?
  11. Oh... I see there is nothing really wrong with the watercolor brush, it was just the result of using it near hard edges. EDIT: Actually the square artifacts seem to be a result of the large size jitter. You have to reduce it quite alot to get it to go away. Still, i'd love to know how to extract textures.
  12. Is there any way to extract textures from the brush files? I love the Daub brushes but some of them have errors in the textures. For example the Watercolor blender. At least one of the 3 brush nozzles is creating square artifacts. Its a shame because it would otherwise be a great brush. It would be great if I could extract it, fix it, and replace it.
  13. The smear tool is what the Daub Blender brushes use. It seems to me that the smear tool works similar to blending in Photoshop. What I haven't figured out is how you make a brush that defaults to the smear tool instead of the brush tool... maybe it depends on which tool is selected when the brush is created?
  14. Sorry to resurrect this old thread... I was hoping to be able to do this, but no, symbols are not quite enough. I tried setting up a 3x3 grid of symbols. As expected, the paint does not "wrap" when you paint across the symbols. I want this feature soooo bad.
