I'm probably being thick, but please can anyone help me create a line that fades out to points at the end? I'm pretty good on PdN, I think it's ace, and I can usually find reasonably easy workarounds for any problem I have, but this has got me stumped.
I'm working on a black background with a horizontal neon blue line. For 1-2 px lines I usually motion blur along the line, but this line has to be fairly thick, 6-8 px. When I try this it gives me, even with rounded ends, just ill-defined blurs. Gaussian doesn't seem to work either.
A search reveals the wonderful Simon Brown showing a sharp end as an option for the line tool, but I don't have that. A painful workaround would be to start with a 7px line, then a centred, longer, 5px, then a 3 etc., and then motion blur, but I'm hoping there may be an easier way.
If you can help, that would be lovely, and you'll be on my virtual Christmas card list.
