Some recent user forum discussions have asked about how to build image tiling effects where the image tile successively rotates as individual tiling paint nibs are painted in one by one. Today’s post shows one approach to doing this in the paint synthesizer that uses the built in horizontal and vertical symmetry control options associated with image background textures. A simple example of this kind of tiling symmetry effect is shown above.
When people think about generating image or movie brush tiling or photo mosaic effects they typically think about using image or movie source brushes. However, the paint synthesizer offers 2 different approaches to painting with images or movie files. In addition to image or movie source brushes, you can also use image or movie background textures.
