Glitter Brushes

With these animated tools you can fill a specific area of the scene with different animated patterns. Several predefined patterns are available for you in the program for immediate use. Also you can create a custom glitter effect by loading any animated gif file. It is recommended that you use a seamless pattern for this tool, because if the animated gif is smaller than the current scene, its image will be tiled in both the vertical and horizontal directions.

This example show a greeting card decorated with one of the glitter brushes.

You can change the following parameters.

Main Settings

Image - displays the file name used for the current glitte

Scale - sets the modifier for the original image as a percentage

Speed - controls animation speed (50 sets it to the original animation speed)



Geometry Settings

Direction - turns the effect picture around the center of the scene

X/Y shift - sets the displacement of each tile relative to the left-bottom corner of the scene

Flip vertical/horizontal - mirrors the image relative to vertical/horizontal axis
