before i buy, is it possible for me to make dithering patterns and then save them as brushes for use with this add-on? that would save me so much time...

You could have a sheet with all your dithering brushes on it and create a brush set, the only thing is with this tool the sheet with the brushes has to still be open in a tab for it to be able to grab the next or last brush when quickly swaping :)

Currently it doesn't save any brushes it just pulls from the sheet and creates the brushes on the fly as you swap through them, this also means you can change them at any time and it will keep the brush set intact and let you swap through them still with the new changes :)

I would love to implement saving and loading of brush sets though so you dont have to create them each time you reopen the brush set file, though currently it only takes a few seconds to select them. 

Perhaps I could add on a feature were it would save all the brushes in to the default brush dropdown though? 

Hmm odd the user erased their comment but I'm not sure if this is what they were looking for with swaping to the foreground color?

You can also swap colors like this while using the brush tool here. And even easier swap colors by holding ALT and using the mouse wheel!

Thank you for creating this, this is exactly what I was looking for!

Absolutely! I'm glad that you were able to find this then! Let me know if you have any troubles at all :) Also would love to see what you use it for too :D

While it feels wrong to make a feature request since this is already such a nice package - would it be possible to add some kind of toggle in this so that when toggled and fed a time interval by the user, the brush would automatically switch to the next brush every N seconds?

Context is that I'd like a very random scene in which the brush changes rapidly - say every 0.1 seconds - to a random one selected.

Currently I can achieve this by toggling the random brush setting and setting up external software to hit the "Next Brush" hotkey every 0.1 seconds for me, but having it inside the plugin would be very convenient.


No worries at all Fluury! This would be a nice addition if I can pull it off xD I'm not sure how it will act if your holding down the left click when it switches brushes but I can def look in to this :)

I'd be intrested to see the brushes that you are using to toggle between, I'm asuming they would be more like paterns then objects in that case. Maybe even with varying opacities? 

I def could see this being powerful with a random rotation interval too. Would be like many custom brushes you find in other programs xD My only worry would be to see how quickly it could adjust the brush on the fly but I can put it to the test to try and push it to the limit like I did with the swaping xD I was pretty surprised how quick it was swaping between brushes.

Here is a little video I posted when testing the swapping just in case quickly swapping needed to be done

Fast Brush Changing Video xD

But yeah could be neato to add a feature such as this. I've not played with having a function fired off at a set time interval nor do I know if it's possible but I can take a look!

Aye, more like patterns. The goal is just more randomness and more spice in linework, shading etc. for a very stylistic approach.
Things like random rotation or size would also spice up the brush quite a lot! But as mentioned before: I have no idea how the technicalities look like, so sorry if I sound like a madman right now.

Thinking about it though, a lot of what I had in mind could be done with random rotation/size too if you could set the parameters. Maybe tinkering with that would prove more useful than the "random brush switch" setting?

The shorter you can set the interval the better, and since you pull the brushes from a separate file maybe transforming the brush parameters already in aseprite would be easier?

Hmm yeah def something to look in to for a future update. Although I won't be removing / replacing the random toggle as its quite useful for object placement. If I could figure out a way to add in the new features they would be extra and not a replacement 😀 The technicality of swaping between brushes while using it might not be possible but def something I'll look at and if possible then adding random rotation and scale might also be possible too.

Hopefully something that can be done though!

this is great! Thanks!

Thank you Grymmjack! I hope you get some good use from the tool! :D
