Creating custom Tool

Recommended Posts



Is it possible to create custom Tool? Like a brush, but not an effect? 

I need to do a FlowMap painter brush. Such brush would paint a color that depends only on movement direction. It would also depend on a movement speed (as long as it's easy to do so).

I'm already developing an .NET + OGL application that could do that, but since I'm at 25% done, I figured out that I could use Paint.Net to make it better and more popular. 


Thanks in advance,

It would be doable in the form that pyrochild said. Have a llook at the Smudge plugin or Liquify to see how it could be done and what the working surface might look like.

No it won't.  Effects and the pseudo tools only have access to the active layer.
