Join Aaron F. Ross for an in-depth discussion in this video Working with strokes, part of Creating Natural Environments in Maya.
Now, we'll look at editing basic brush attributes for 3D Paint Effects.…I'm just going to get in a little bit closer to the grid, and I'll go into the…Paint Effects Tool options and just reset that, because I've played around with…that a little bit previously.…So now we'll see meshes, and they'll be displayed at full quality.…I'll go ahead and click on the Daisy Large Brush, because that's a good one for…training purposes, drag across to create one stroke, and I'll drag to create…another stroke, and now I've got two strokes.…
When you create strokes in this manner, you will actually have two different…brushes in the Maya scene. So, currently I've got two strokes, and each stroke has…got a separate brush attached to it, so that means I can control the settings…for either one of these separately.…So I will go ahead and hit Ctrl+A to get the Attribute editor open, and you'll…see I've got a stroke node, which includes things like the display quality, and…I've also got the brush node here and this is where really all the magic…
