Here's my problem: I want to make some brush strokes for a motion graphic video I'm working on. I want them to be plain, with no texture rather than a gradient. I have the figure of the brush drawn in black over a transparent layer and in the upper oneI have the gradient ready to go.
I want to "merge" both layers but without actually merging them nor having to cut out some area of the gradient. I want to draw a stroke and have it filled with the gradient.
I don't know if this is possible or how could this be done.
Any help is higly appreciated.
