Opacity Brush

Lets you quickly and naturally brush the opacity mask of one or more art objects to remove portions of them or make them fade out. Enhanced control with Wacom.

Texture Tool

Lets you quickly and easily add one or more raster-based textures as a Live Effect to filled paths, live text, gradient meshes and raster objects. Intuitive annotation controls let you quickly change a texture's scale, rotation, opacity, and blending mode. An "Autocover" feature ensures that a texture will completely cover an object, even if it is edited. Textures can be set as "repeating", meaning they will be automatically tiled to fill the object.

Texture Brush

Lets you brush in or out one or more textures to remove portions of them or make them fade out. Enhanced control with Wacom.

Both brushes allow adjustment of size, hardness, opacity, noise, roundness, and angle and (in CC and above) can preview all parameters in real time. With a pressure-sensitive device such as a Wacom Intuos or Cintiq, various brush parameters can be controlled dynamically with the stylus' pressure, wheel, tilt, bearing and angle. Resolution of the mask is user-definable

    :

    Texturino is the perfect solution for vector illustrators, who want to add and edit textures in their shapes without using Photoshop. Everything’s simple to use with a lot of options (like opacity and blending modes), allowing to give more personality to the final creations.

    I like work with Texturino, all my projects look natural and I could add quickly any texture I would like to use.
