Quick Start

Welcome to AMMPTT - BrushBatcher Official Documentation

Best Practices and Usage Notes

The Brush Batcher add-on has been tested on a unit of around 1000 brushes and worked with minimal errors. The only exceptions for failure occurred when string names for files went beyond supported operating system requirement constraints. It is recommended to keep file names concise and within the limits of your operating system to ensure smooth operation.

This add-on is intended to be a way for artists to have a "Bin of Brushes" that they can bring with them into a project. It is designed for organized individuals and teams looking to have a more intelligent workflow while expanding iterative capabilities. By using the Brush Batcher, you can efficiently manage and update a large collection of brushes, streamlining your texture painting process. Most Painting tecnniques become quantified and stable within a session, and this tool is a way to unify those settings quickly once the initial brush setting preferences have been established.
