How can I make certain brushes continuous over red nodes / remove red nodes

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hello.

With some brushes I can not work out how to have them a continous loop. They leave a gap over the red node and if I delete the red node the next node becomes red.

How can I avoid this?

Thanks.

Many/most texture brushes are designed to have a gap at the beginning and end, so they look like a real brush fading in and out. Try using the "edit brush" mouse menu, and change the brush head and tail end position. If a bit is clipped off, the texture will go all the way to the end of the vector.

You may also want/need to set the stroke Cap property to either Round Cap or Square Cap -- Butt Cap will leave a gap. Alternately, overlap the two end nodes a bit.
