Photoshop Brushes into After Effects

Recommended Posts

bitmap based brushes are not an option in After Effects AFAIK (unless there is a 3rd party plugin option).

There might be a way to fake brushstrokes with custom particles (e.g. Trapcode Particular). You could use motion sketch to "draw" with your emitter.

I am surprised that the brushes in AE have been so weak for so long, too. Combustion is pretty darn good at this.

 

Sad but i understand it all, thanks everyone though for the help!!! the closest way seems to be using trapcode particular but in that case.. i did not understand too well the way to simulate a brush in particular ...Can anyone give me some advice on this?

Thanks

STF.

Use a light emitter, as it is easier to "write" in all three dimensions.

 

Use something like this:

 

Velocity: 0

 

Velocity Rand: 0

 

Emitter Size X,Y & Z: 0

 

The rest is up to you, but keeping a small emitter with no velocity basically creates a "paint brush".

 

For the custom particle "brush", make a small precomp and use that as a Custom Particle (Particle>Particle Type>Custom).
