gingerfreak Posted December 18, 2009 Share Posted December 18, 2009 Hi all, 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. Thanks. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
