The following images shows a simple self-tiling pattern followed by a 2×2 and 4×4 tile of the original pattern. This post will discuss how to generate self-tiling effects in the paint synthesizer. We’ll also take a look at the simple MSG preset we used to generate the 2×2 and 4×4 tiling shown above.
The trick to generating self-tiling paint effects in the paint synthesizer resides inside of the Path End control panel.
Note: that there’s a parameter in the Path End control panel called Wrap Path at Edge. Normally it is turned Off, which leads to normal drawing behavior. So if the pen moves off the edge of the canvas no drawing takes place on the canvas.
