Mask Expand Operator Redesigned with Tons of New Features


We're barely two weeks into the New Year and Pablo Dobarro has already wowed us with a new sculpt mode improvement. He has just revealed his redesign of the Mask Expand operator which is poised to become more powerful and versatile than ever before in this new iteration.

The operator now supports most sculpt gesture functionality, as well as having the ability to create multiple mask shapes while the operator is active.

Similar to its boundary brush sibling, it is now able to detect mesh boundaries, but also reshape resize and delete existing ones!

And finally, in a "one last thing"- style tour de force, the operator supports recursion, allowing the operator to start expanding from its current state.

If this incredible redesign is anything to go by, 2021 will be an even wilder ride for the sculpt mode with our trusty Spanish captain at the (perfectly retopologized) helm.
