Adobe Illustrator CS5: Enhanced Art Brush

Illustrator CS5 enhanced the existing art brush with some major upgrades. Art Brushes now sport these features

  • Variable Width: The art brush can support variable widths. You can set the width to be pressure sensitive…etc, and then tweak it afterward with the Width Tool. It IS just a regular path after all, so it’s not surprising that it’s the same set of tools.
  • Stretch Between Guides: Between “Scale Proportionately” and “Stretch To Fit” (now 2 radio buttons instead of 1) is the new “Stretch between Guides” option. Think of it as 3-slice scaling (compared to 9-slice scaling for symbols). Only the portion of the path between the guides will stretch.
  • Overlap Adjustment: Adjusts corners and folds to prevent overlap. so you don’t get those ugly corners!
