Functionality in Painter 8 has been grown. Brushes can now be customized in a new, easy to use window. Wow! 400 plus pre-designed brushes, 30 mediums and the Brush (Designer) Creator that is easy to use. You can mix paints in the painter’s palette in real time to get the perfect hue. 

There are three main parts of the brush designer: The Randomizer, The Transposer, and the Stroke Designer. The Randomizer allows brush choice and it will create variants. The Transposer allows combining or modifies two brushes into one. With the Stroke Designer one can design or change your brushes to achieve a desired effect. The Stroke Designer is directed more for the advanced user but anyone can create extraordinary paint effects.
