Thread: Gimp: Branching Tapered Rivers

    Post Gimp: Branching Tapered Rivers

    Hi, everyone!

    Thanks to all the nifty tutorials here, I've been able to put together a map with a river that joins another river. Right now I've drawn multiple rivers as a path in Gimp and used "Stroke Path" to draw them onto a layer. My problem is that "Stroke Path" always tapers both ends of each segment (see image).

    I've tried the excellent "Tapered Stroke" addon by RobA, but this part kills me:

    Couple of things... It will only stroke the first segment of a multi (broken) segmented path. If there are no paths, the script will run but error out.
    ...since I've got multiple segments, it seems I'm out of luck. How do you guys usually get around this?

    Sorry... I haven't tried using RobA's tapering rivers tutorial, so I can't be much help myself. Hopefully someone will be along who can help.
    I think, therefore I am a nerd.

    I'd just make each branch its own path, and stroke them independently.
