Today’s post will discuss how to work with creating photo mosaic effects based on movie brushes that contain a series of non-rectangular shapes or objects on flat colored backgrounds. The images above show how I created a movie brush effect using the actual shapes of the objects for the individual brush nibs, as opposed to using rectangular nibs.
I’m trying to put together this post to help answer a user’s recent question. They were trying to work with non-rectangular shapes using a movie brush to create a photo mosaic effect, and they were getting white fringing outlines being drawn at the edges of the individual shapes they were trying to paint from the movie brush.
The image gallery below contains a few frames from their example movie brush. Note how the individual frames of the movie brush contain individual objects placed on a solid white (255,255,255) background.
