Hi there first time poster,

I am trying to create a line/tube that would paint on (simply following a path using either WSM Deform or Bezier Path) similar to painting a fence with a brush (where you would not get a complete line, it would have gaps inside and sometimes not be fully painted on). Would I make a map of the texture in black and white and apply that in the opacity (or transparency if it were a raytrace material?)

Any help/tips/pointers at all would be great.

Theo D
