Stroke Menu

This page covers many of the tools in the Strokes menu. These are tools that work primarily on strokes, however, some also work with point selections.

Subdivide

Modo

Modo Edición

Menú

Stroke ‣ Subdivide

Subdivides the strokes by inserting points between the selected points.

Número de Cortes

The number of subdivisions to perform.

Suavizado

The amount of the smoothness on subdivided points.

Repetir

Number of times to repeat the procedure.

Selected Points

When enabled, limits the effect to only the selected points within the stroke.

Posición

When enabled, the operator affect the points location.

Grosor

When enabled, the operator affect the points thickness.

Fuerza

When enabled, the operator affect the points strength (alpha).

UVs

When enabled, the operator affect the UV rotation on the points.

Simplify

Modo

Modo Edición

Menú

Stroke ‣ Simplify

Reduce the amount of points in the strokes.

Fijo

Deletes alternated points in the strokes, except the start and end points.

Pasos

The number of times to repeat the procedure.

Adaptativo

Uses the RDP algorithm (Ramer-Douglas-Peucker algorithm) for points deletion. The algorithm tries to obtain a similar line shape with fewer points.

Factor

Controls the amount of recursively simplifications applied by the algorithm.

Tomar Muestra

Recreates the stroke geometry with a predefined length between points.

Longitud

The distance between points on the recreated stroke. Smaller values will require more points to recreate the stroke, while larger values will result in fewer points needed to recreate the curve.

Sharp Threshold

The maximum angle between points on the recreated stroke. Smaller values will require more points to recreate the stroke, while larger values will result in fewer points needed to recreate the curve.

Leave Gaps

When enabled, do not use geometry to connect the strokes.
