Since you have not shown a picture of the alpha itself, I can only guess.

My guess is below.

You have not left any empty space in the original image In other words the alpha is flush to the edge of the image and you get clipping.  I come by that conclusion as your alpha image fills all the space in the brush in those 3 corners and a little in a 4 corner.

I could be wrong of course only trying to help with the information given.

Yes Digman it's exactly that. But I thought we could set some parameters like in ZBrush. In ZBrush I do not have this problem, the Alphas are visible directly, and there are plethora of settings.
is it possible adjust the size of the Alpha image inside the brush?

Thank.

Focal shift tends to skew the image, Yes it will make it smaller but skew the image as well. The more you set it to a minus value the more it skews the alpha image. This might work for some alphas if you do not have to set a large minus value in the focal shift settings.

There is no scale function at this time for the alpha. Only thing you can do is right click on the alpha and edit in external editor, adjust the image and save.

Hi,

@Carlosan:

This solution is strange. I do not even know what to use this option. What is its usefulness?.:blink::D

@digman:

Yes! This solution is laborious but it works very well.

Thank you both.;)

Hi people, i know its an old thread, but theres a way to batch convert all images from a brush set? Look that some was working and now look croped by the fallof of the brush, or maybe a template to create brushes without getting this problem??

Hi. Since Version 4.7.34 that was implemented.

- square alphas complete support, even older ones will act correctly.

- square alphas distortions fixed. In some cases alphas require reimporting. Square alphas derived from 3D models supported as well.

So how we can acess the controls? I had to add a space in all bruhes canvas so they could fit in the circle thing
