Multibrosse

toolmultibrush

The Multibrush tool allows you to draw using multiple instances of a freehand brush stroke at once, it can be accessed from the Toolbox docker or with the default shortcut Q. Using the Multibrush is similar to toggling the Mirror Tools, but the Multibrush is more sophisticated, for example it can mirror freehand brush strokes along a rotated axis.

The settings for the tool will be found in the tool options dock.

The multibrush tool has three modes and the settings for each can be found in the tool options dock. Symmetry and mirror reflect over an axis which can be set in the tool options dock. The default axis is the center of the canvas.

The three modes are:

Symétrie

Symmetry will reflect your brush around the axis at even intervals. The slider determines the number of instances which will be drawn on the canvas.

Mirror

Mirror will reflect the brush across the X axis, the Y axis, or both.

Translate

Translate will paint the set number of instances around the cursor at the radius distance.

This works as a mirrored symmetry, but is a bit slower than symmetry+toolbar mirror mode.

Copy Translate

This allows you to set the position of the copies relative to your own cursor. To set the position of the copies, first toggle Add, and then mouseleft the canvas to place copies relative to the multibrush origin. Finally, press Add again, and start drawing to see the copy translate in action.

The assistant and smoothing options work the same as in the Brosse à main levée, though only on the real brush and not its copies.
