The short answer is, "Yes."
But be aware that merely putting a brush into the clone brush library does not
make it a "cloner" unless it has already has the prerequisite underlying properties/settings. (Disclaimer: I'm not knowledgeable enough to give you specifics in this regard. I can tell you that among the bazillion brush settings/options one known as methods
, among whose options is cloner
. Method = cloner
is just a starting point.)
Did you know that many non-cloner brushes can be made to "act like" cloners? To activate this feature for a given brush variant click the "Clone Color" button on the Colors palette. This button is next to the color swatches and looks like a 'rubber stamp.' Instant cloner.
If no one else is able to answer your question in more depth here at RP, check out the "Paint Outside the Frame" forum, which can be accessed from here: http://www.digitalpaintingforum.com/
There you will find a lot of friendly folks who are very knowledgeable in the ins/outs of Painter brush options/settings.
There's a lot of good info on brushes (in general) in the following thread at Innographx. Although I didn't see mention of creating a cloner specifically, the content should help get you more familiar with the possibilities: http://www.innographx.com/forum/view...6e810ef72050cb
Hope some of this helps...
