[Question] about paint areas

Postby nektares » Thu Nov 19, 2015 6:12 pm

I was wondering if a paint area of a skatter surface could be used on the render list for masksing purposes.

i explain myself, i used this paint area to skatter some stones for making a road, but what if i wanted to use the same paint area and invert it to make grass around that paint area.

when i create a new skatter group or load a preset i can´t see that paint area on the new group, but when i return to the first skatter group there it is, so the question is:

could there be a way to copy or store a paint area to use it on another skatter group?

cheers!

Talking about painting, I'd like to create a custom brush, say around 6ft with a 2 ft fall and I would also like a reverse brush/eraser that deletes with the same fall off for creating custom paths.

I guess I could do that. Use a custom shape as brush.
I'll add it to my todo list.

Are you talking about erasing some part of an area you've painted? => "Erase" button
Or having your painted area as exclude? => Select the area, "Exclude"

I want to populate a large slope area with a mixture of long, short grass with weeds etc, then using a brush I want to erase parts to create a foot path. so I'd like the fall off controllable if possible
