Drawing with Textured Brushes

In Storyboard Pro, you can draw with a textured line. When drawing on vector layers, textured lines are a mixed bitmap image contained in a vector frame. This allows you to sketch as if you are drawing on paper. When drawing on bitmap layers, there is no vector frame. There is only one big rectangular canvas that you are drawing on.

To create your own texture brush, you must prepare your tiled texture file in a third-party software, such as Adobe Photoshop. If your image has transparency in it, it will be supported. The texture file must be either a .PSD or .TGA file.

NOTE: It is recommended that you maintain your texture resolution between 100 x 100 pixels and 400 x 400 pixels.
