Painting symmetrical strokes

You can reflect painted strokes along an invisible axis so that when you paint, the stroke is mirrored on the opposite side of the axis. Reflection is useful for creating symmetrical effects.

To paint using the reflection option

  1. In the 3D Paint Tool settings panel, open the Stroke section and turn on Reflection and set the Reflection Axis to X.

    Notice that there are now two brush outlines that run along an axis. The reflection axis is positioned around a point at the center of the object.

  2. Paint on one side of Dino, such as one of the legs.

    As you paint, the strokes are reflected along the axis and appear on the other side of Dino. Tumble to see the reflected stroke on Dino’s other side.
