when I'm using brush tool and I set up Shape dynamics, Control: fade, there's input on the right for fade length.

Is there a way to automatically start fade the path from 50% of length (stroke path)? I don't want to sit and try +10, -10 and so in the input.

Thanks for your time and sorry for my english

  • So, I don't know what you are trying accomplish, other than the fade, but after you have drawn the shape, you could take a brush tool ( accompanied with layer mask ) or eraser tool and a soft round brush with a healthy size and 0 hardness of course. Then just hide or erase, and you might want to use varying opacity levels depending on the shape of it...

No, there is no way to start the fade at a specific spot. The fade starts from the end of the stroke inward in all cases.

  • ok, thanks, i guess I have to try changing the input value Commented Dec 1, 2012 at 19:18
