Does the tile brush work? (Gurdy) - 1/3/2007 2:47 PM PST RRS feed

    Does anyone know how to make the tile brush work? It doesn't seem to be 
    implemented -- or maybe I'm overlooking something. Any thoughts on this?
    
    Thanks!

    Hi Mary,
    Tile brush only works in Image brushes, visual brushes and drawing brushes.
    May that's the problem. Please see the example below that shows how to use
    tile brush on an image brush. Let me know if this works for you,

    1) Create an Image Brush
    -----------------------
    Add an image file
    Insert the image into the scene
    Tools | Make Brush Resource | Make Image Brush

    2) Use Tile Brush on the image brush
    ---------------
    Insert a rectangle
    Apply the image brush created before. (you can do this by using the brush
    resources tab in the brushes palette)
    Move to the tile brush tab in the Brushes Palette
    Set Tile Mode to Tile
    Select the Brush Transform Tool from the tools toolbar (press B will do it
    as well)
    Resize the image brush applied to the rectangle to see the different "tiles"

    Thanks!
