i have created a stroke with a calligraphy brush. Now i want to make the stroke a bit thinner at some points of the path.
It could be easily done with the width tool but it doesn't work directly on the stroke.
Is there a way to convert the stroke so the thickness of the stroke will be kept at the other points?
Thank you in advance!
Thank you for your quick reply.
This way would create a form and would be destructive to the path with information about the thickness related to it.
I'd like to have a stroke as a result like i can create it as easily and complex with a calligraphy brush (pen pressure for thickness).
But i want a stroke like i can create it with a path using the pen tool and then use the width tool to add varying thickness point by point.
I hope i could express myself well enough as i'm not a native english speaker.
The plugin WidthScribe does that: you can use the Wacom to draw your path, works like the calligraphy brush, but instead it creates a stoke with width points. You can then use other tools the plugin offers or just the width tool and edit the stroke width.
Thank you! Good to know it works fine with a wacom.
By the way is it better to give a reply to each answer like yours or Kurt Golds to make sure that my question is still pending.
I hope i won't bother you with this off Topic question.
I heard that in a general reply you will not receive a message (e.g. RSS feeds)
Again thank you!
Hi again. i have installed and tested WidthScribe. It's indeed an impressive tool. But i haven't found the tool which works like the calligraphy brush yet.
Here is an example of what kind of sketches i'd like to do without having to use another tool than the brush or whatever. And afterwards refine them with e.g. the tools of WidthScribe.
You mean with the plugin?
It should work. Have you opened Window > DrawScribe > Dynamic Sketch?
The panel has some interesting options. You can input for instance the highest and lowest stroke width. Maybe the difference is too low at the moment to see a result. You also need to set the input parameters, for instance the pen pressure.
Yes the Plug in. I get the same result as shown in the example videos on the website of Astute.
I draw a thin line with the Dynamic Sketch tool and the moment the pen is released from the screen the stoke i want appears.
But not while i'm drawing.
I may have overlooked something. But i'm pretty sure they would have shown examples with a realtime feature. If it exists.
