Paint Brush Strokes?
on Jul 21, 2010 at 10:34:08 am


I'm trying to animate a fairly realistic looking paint brush stroke - pretty fast over 10 or so frames but struggling to get something I like.

I've tried masking some real brush strokes I've made myself as well as using particles to generate a brush and then animating the emitter to make the stroke but have reached a bit of a dead end.

Would love to hear any tips / advice from anyone who has tried the same thing?

Thanks for your time,

Try applying roughen edges when you do a mask reveal.
