While it feels wrong to make a feature request since this is already such a nice package - would it be possible to add some kind of toggle in this so that when toggled and fed a time interval by the user, the brush would automatically switch to the next brush every N seconds?

Context is that I'd like a very random scene in which the brush changes rapidly - say every 0.1 seconds - to a random one selected.

Currently I can achieve this by toggling the random brush setting and setting up external software to hit the "Next Brush" hotkey every 0.1 seconds for me, but having it inside the plugin would be very convenient.


No worries at all Fluury! This would be a nice addition if I can pull it off xD I'm not sure how it will act if your holding down the left click when it switches brushes but I can def look in to this :)

I'd be intrested to see the brushes that you are using to toggle between, I'm asuming they would be more like paterns then objects in that case. Maybe even with varying opacities? 

I def could see this being powerful with a random rotation interval too. Would be like many custom brushes you find in other programs xD My only worry would be to see how quickly it could adjust the brush on the fly but I can put it to the test to try and push it to the limit like I did with the swaping xD I was pretty surprised how quick it was swaping between brushes.

Here is a little video I posted when testing the swapping just in case quickly swapping needed to be done

But yeah could be neato to add a feature such as this. I've not played with having a function fired off at a set time interval nor do I know if it's possible but I can take a look!

Aye, more like patterns. The goal is just more randomness and more spice in linework, shading etc. for a very stylistic approach.
Things like random rotation or size would also spice up the brush quite a lot! But as mentioned before: I have no idea how the technicalities look like, so sorry if I sound like a madman right now.

Thinking about it though, a lot of what I had in mind could be done with random rotation/size too if you could set the parameters. Maybe tinkering with that would prove more useful than the "random brush switch" setting?

The shorter you can set the interval the better, and since you pull the brushes from a separate file maybe transforming the brush parameters already in aseprite would be easier?

Hmm yeah def something to look in to for a future update. Although I won't be removing / replacing the random toggle as its quite useful for object placement. If I could figure out a way to add in the new features they would be extra and not a replacement 😀 The technicality of swaping between brushes while using it might not be possible but def something I'll look at and if possible then adding random rotation and scale might also be possible too.

Hopefully something that can be done though!

I'll be keeping an eye out, thanks for being so responsive!

Absolutely! :D I've just thought of something though I've not sat down at my pc yet. Can custom brushes be used with the dynamic brush settings?? If so that would be huge!
